Things that go on on elevators, don’t stay on elevators, as Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and the NFL are finding out today.
Surveillance video of the knockout punch Rice deal his now-wife Janay Rice is not a good look for him nor the NFL.
Leave it to TMZ to come up with the actual footage of the Baltimore Ravens running back knocking his then-fiancee out in an Atlantic City elevator.
And the video is as shocking as you probably imagined. It makes you wonder just what the NFL was thinking when Rice only received a 2-game suspension for his actions.
As we reported, the incident took place Feb. 15th at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City after Rice and (now wife) Janay Palmer got into a heated argument on their way into the elevator.
Inside the elevator it’s apparent he strikes first … she hits back … and then Rice delivers the knockout blow.
The punch knocks Janay off her feet — and she smashes her head on the elevator hand rail … knocking her out cold. Ray doesn’t seem phased … and when the door opens, he drags her out into the hotel.
TMZ Sports says an employee of the hotel, which is now shut down, said he was working there at the time and says the NFL saw the elevator footage before imposing the 2-game suspension.
NFL, you’ve got some serious ‘splainin to do.
