Other Relationship Information about Ray Rice and Janay Rice:
On February 15, 2014, Rice and his fiancee Janay Palmer were arrested and charged with assault after a physical altercation at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Celebrity news website TMZ posted a video of Rice dragging Palmer's body out of an elevator after apparently knocking her out. The Ravens issued a statement following TMZ's release of the video, calling Rice's domestic violence arrest a "serious matter". The matter is being handled by the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
On March 27, 2014, a grand jury indicted Rice on third-degree aggravated assault, with a possible jail sentence of three to five years and a fine of up to $15,000. Rice married Palmer on March 28, 2014. For the incident, Rice was suspended for the first two games of the 2014 NFL season. In a news conference announcing longer suspension lengths for future domestic violence incidents, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that he "didn't get it right" in deciding Rice's punishment.
On September 8, 2014, TMZ released footage from an elevator camera showing Rice punching Palmer. The Baltimore Ravens terminated Rice's contract as a result. Shortly afterward, Goodell announced that Rice had been suspended from the NFL indefinitely.
Classic Quotes by Ray Rice and Janay Rice about their relationship:
"I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it's a reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that media & unwanted from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don't you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you've succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!" Janay Rice 9/9/2014
"I have to be strong for my wife. She is so strong. We are in good spirits. We have a lot of people praying for us and we'll continue to support each other. I have to be there for and my family right now and work through this." Ray Rice 9/9/2014
" I know some people disagreed with me publicly apologizing. I'm not saying that what Ray did wasn't wrong. He and I both know it was wrong. It's been made clear to him that it was wrong. But at the same time, who am I to put my hands on somebody? I asked him how he felt when he saw that I was unconscious. He told me he was in shock. I asked him what happened when we got out of the elevator. He told me he was terrified because security was there. I asked him how he felt seeing me like that. He said he was thinking, 'What did I just do?' I didn't watch the video again. If it took our situation becoming headline news to show domestic violence is happening in this country, that's a positive." Janay Rice 11/5/2014
"Ray told the commissioner, and his colleagues, everything that happened. There was no reason to lie because we knew that there was a video and we assumed the NFL knew what was in it, even though we didn't know whether or not they saw it. I was extremely surprised and angry that the Ravens released him, because they know him. They were our family, but I felt like the Ravens completely disregarded the past six years with him. Anytime the Ravens needed someone for a community event, Ray was their man." Janay Rice 11/5/2014
"I made a horrendous mistake not apologizing to my wife. I was nervous, and that was the first time we were available to speak. This is something, you know, as a man you have to own. I'm horribly sorry for everything that I have to put my family through. I think it was her...trying to take light off the situation. I appreciated it, but that's not what the big deal is. The big deal is for me to always protect her, and that's why I said I take full responsibility. No relationship is perfect. We've had arguments, but when you talk about abuse, you know, that's something that we know that we'd never cross that path...That was just very uncharacteristic of myself." Ray Rice 12/2/2014
"I'm not going to sit there in silence and let something happen to me and God forbid, in front of my child, just like, let it happen? There's no way." Janay Rice 11/5/2014
"No relationship is perfect. We've had arguments, but when you talk about abuse, you know, that's something that we know that we'd never cross that path ... That was just very uncharacteristic of myself. Domestic violence is a real issue in society. We could take our one bad night, it just happened to be on video, but we are truly sorry to the people that are really going through it. It's a real problem. And I know when the time is right, I know my wife wants to help, I know I want to help. They would have to be willing to, you know, look deeper into who I am and realize that me and my wife had one bad night, and I took full responsibility for it. And one thing about my punishment and everything going along with anything that happened is that I've accepted it. I went fully forward with it. I never complained, or I never did anything like that. I took full responsibility for everything that I did, and the only thing I can hope for and wish for is a second chance." Ray Rice 12/2/2014
