Ravens’ Ray Rice arrested after incident in Atlantic City

Valentine’s Day weekend was a rough time for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and his fiancée. Rice was arrested following an “alleged physical altercation with a woman in Atlantic City.”

From the Baltimore Sun:

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 also said a woman he identified as Rice’s fiancée was also charged and released in connection with the incident.

Rice, 27, was released on his own recognizance, Alperstein said.

“We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancée. We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained,” Ravens director of public relations Chad Steele said.

It doesn’t specify whether the woman who is the victim of the “very minor physical altercation” was Rice’s fiancée or a different woman. More information will likely come out in the week to come.

[UPDATE:] From Deadspin:

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.
