A video posted by TMZ Sports showing NFL running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in February has gone viral.
In the TMZ Sports’ cleaned up version of the video , Rice delivered a knockout blow to her face inside the elevator which causes her to smash her head on an elevator hand rail and fall unconscious. He drags her out of the elevator until a hotel employee stopped by.
On Monday, Rice team, “Baltimore Raven”, announced the termination of contract of the 3-time all-Pro. NFL initially suspended him for 2 games but after watching the video, they announced an indefinite suspension for Rice.
Rice was charged with felony assault in March, but after she declined to testify against her husband, charges were reduced to court-supervised counseling. They got married one month after the attack.
