Security Footage Surfaces of Ray Rice Punching Out Fiancée

TMZ has obtained security footage showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching out his fiancée in an Atlantic City elevator last February.

In the video the couple is seen arguing on their way to the elevator. Once inside the argument escalates and Ray Rice is seen punching then-fiancée (now wife) Janay Palmer in the face, causing her to drop to the floor unconscious.

Rice was booked on assault, a charge authorities increased when they obtained this video of the incident. Until now, only video of Rice dragging Palmer out of the elevator had been seen by the public.

The video is likely to reignite anger over Rice’s two-game suspension by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who apologized last week for the inadequate punishment.
