TMZ Releases Ray Rice Elevator Knockout Video

Blogged by Tyler Young.

More controversy for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. TMZ  Sports released the surveillance video of Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an elevator last February.

The video of Rice and now wife, Janay Palmer, is from February inside an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. Both sides exchange hits, before Rice ultimately knocks Palmer into a railing and onto the ground. An NFL spokesman says the league did not view the video until today. Rice was suspended for two games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The case set a precedence for harsher penalties for players involved in domestic violence matters.
