According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested this weekend at an Atlantic City casino after getting into an alleged altercation with a woman.
Rice’s attorney Andrew Alperstein confirmed Rice was charged and released after what he described as allegations of a “very minor physical altercation” at Revel Casino on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Alperstein said a woman he identified as Rice’s fiancée was also charged and released in connection with the incident.
The Ravens released a statement via director of public relations Chad Steele.
“We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancee. We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained.”
Rice’s attorney also gave his thoughts on the situation.
“We haven’t seen any charging documents yet,” attorney Michael 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.
This is the first time in Rice’s NFL career that he’s gotten in trouble with the police.
