Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens football team had been indicted for physically assaulting his girlfriend in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino.

According to Atlantic County Acting Prosecutor Jim McClain, an Atlantic County Grand Jury yesterday "indicted Raymell M. Rice for one (1) count
of aggravated assault, for attempting to cause significant bodily injury, and/or purposely
or knowing causing such injury, and/or recklessly causing such injury under extreme
indifference to the value of human life. Aggravated Assault is a 3rd degree"

The charge stems from an incident in the early morning hours of February 15th, when Atlantic City Police responded to Revel Casino to investigate an altercation between Rice and Janay Palmer.
