Rice and his fiancée, Janay Palmer were both charged with simple assault domestic violence in the incident, which took place on Friday at the Revel casino on the boardwalk in Atlantic City. Both were released that night. Rice's attorney described the incident as a "minor physical altercation." According to the police report, Rice and Palmer struck each other with their hands in the club, which led to the arrest for both parties.
Rice has become one of the faces of the Ravens franchise after Ray Lewis retired and Ed Reed left last season. Two years ago Rice signed a five-year, $35 million contract with the Ravens. He's coming off a rough year in which he rushed for just four touchdowns and 660 yards.
The Ravens are aware of the situation, according to the Baltimore Sun, and Rice's attorney said this wasn't much more than a misunderstanding.
