ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) – Police in Atlantic City said Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested at a casino there after an argument with his fiance turned physical.
Atlantic City police said Rice and Janay Palmer were both arrested on simple assault charges and were released on a summons after an incident at the Revel Casino early Saturday morning.
Both Rice and Palmer declined medical attention and neither reported any injuries.
Michael Diamondstein, an attorney for Rice, said he’s hopeful that after an investigation “the matter turns out to be little more than a misunderstanding.”
Rice played at Rutgers University in New Jersey and was drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft by the Ravens.
