Domestic Violence Incident With Ray Rice
In February of 2014, Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice reportedly got into an argument with then-fiancé Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City, New Jersey casino. Unbeknownst to the public was the fact that the two got into a physical altercation, with Rice striking Palmer with so much force that she was basically knocked out.
Months later, tabloid news site TMZ leaked the (rather disturbing) video of Rice clocking Palmer in the elevator, and dragging her knocked-out corpse out of said elevator. It understandably elicited a huge response from the public when it was released, and forced the NFL to be much more stringent about its views towards the behavior of its players in their home lives.
