Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested over the weekend after an alleged altercation at an Atlantic City casino, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Rice’s attorney, Andrew Alperstein, told the Sun that Rice and his fiancee both were charged and released in what he described as a “very minor physical altercation.” Alperstein said the alleged incident was with a woman and occurred at Revel Casino on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
A Ravens spokesman said the team talked with Rice following the incident.
“We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancee,” the spokesman said. “We have spoken with Ray and know that they returned home together after being detained.”
Rice, who signed a five-year, $35 million deal with the Ravens in 2012, is coming off his worst season with the team. The 27-year-old rushed for 660 yards and four touchdowns in 2013.
