Breaking News: The Baltimore Ravens have just announced the termination of their starting running back, Ray Rice. This morning, TMZ leaked a video of Rice attacking his fiancee in an elevator. Below is the video (Warning: Disturbing Violence).
Once the video was out, the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell claimed to not have seen the video before it was released today. According to ESPN, Rice’s teammates also noted that they were not aware of the contents of the video before this morning as well.
The Ravens made the swift reaction in cutting the player, despite the two game suspension Commissioner Goodell imputed after the first video was released.
UPDATE: Commissioner Goodell has indefinitely suspended Rice.
