After a physical and public altercation with his fiancee on Friday night, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested and later released “under his own recognizance.”
The dispute took place at the Revel Casino on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. The situation was described as a minor altercation and there is very little evidence that has been released.
“We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancée. We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained”, said Ravens director of public relations, Chad Steele.
The Revel security department has declined to comment and the Atlantic City Police Department is yet to issue any statements.
Rice hired Michael Diamondstein, a Philadelphia-based attorney, after the arrest.
“We haven’t seen any charging documents yet,” Diamondstein said. “There was an argument that included Ray. I can’t give any specifics because we haven’t seen the document yet.”
“Once we’re able to go through the evidence, it should wind up to be little more than a misunderstanding,” Diamondstein said.
