Ray Rice’s Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed
Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice had a domestic violence charge against him dismissed Thursday.
Via Bleacher Report:
Rice was accepted into a pretrial intervention program last May that allowed him to avoid prosecution in the aggravated assault case stemming from the incident in Atlantic City in which he punched his then-fiancee in an elevator, per Lynda Cohen of PressofAtlanticCity.com.
According to Cohen’s report from May 2014, the “third-degree charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury would be dismissed. The arrest would remain on his record, but with no conviction.”
TMZ released the video of Rice striking his then-fiancee from February 2014. Rice was then released by the Ravens and suspended by the NFL for two games, later indefinitely. His indefinite suspension was eventually overturned by an independent arbitrator that made him eligible to play right away if a team signed him.
Rice remains a free agent and can sign with any team. The 28-year-old had 6,180 rushing yards and 37 rushing touchdowns in six seasons with the Ravens, winning a Super Bowl in 2012.
Do you think another team will sign Ray anytime soon?
