Baltimore Ravens star running back Ray Rice has gotten himself in quite the pickle. According to reports, the athlete allegedly uppercut his fiancée after she reportedly spat on him. The incident allegedly went down at an entertainment resort in Atlantic City. Deadspin reports:
The Baltimore Sun broke the story that Rice had been arrested, charged, and released. His attorney, Andrew Alperstein, claimed that Rice’s fiancée had also been arrested in connection with the incident, which he described as a “very minor physical altercation.”
That may be so; Atlantic City police aren’t returning calls on the matter right now and the casino declined to comment on the incident. According to our tipster, though, word at the Revel early Saturday morning was that a woman—presumably the fiancée—had spit on Rice and that in retaliation, he uppercut her, knocking her completely unconscious.
There’s also a few people on Twitter claiming they saw the alleged altercation go down and it was a brutal one. Regardless, Rice’s camp is claiming that the incident wasn’t as violent as it’s being reported.
