TMZ Sports
has obtained footage of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice dragging his fiancee (who appears to be out cold) out of an elevator in an Atlantic City casino ... moments after cops say they attacked each other on the property.

The footage was shot on February 15th ... right before Rice and his fiancee Janay Palmer were both arrested for assault at the Revel Casino. Cops say they have video which proved both parties attacked each other.

But before the arrest, Ray can be seen trying to lift and move a seemingly unconscious Palmer out of a casino elevator.

While Palmer is sprawled out on the ground, a man in a suit -- who appears to be talking into a security microphone --  approaches the situation and confronts Rice. It's unclear if the man is security, but it sure seems that way.

Moments later, as Palmer seems to regain consciousness, Rice walks away.

Both Rice and Palmer were later arrested and taken to a nearby police station. They've since been released.

Ray's attorney Michael Diamondstein tells us ... he has not seen the video but is adamant, "Neither Ray nor myself will try this case in the media."

He adds, "However, the video that's being posted by TMZ Sports is not the complete event, but is merely the end result of what transpired."

"We'll assure the public that when this matter is fully tried and completed, you'll have a better understanding of what happened and we ask the public to reserve making any judgment until all of the facts come out."

Anyone stop to consider that maybe he just put her in a sleeper-hold? The police are saying they both attacked each other... I mean, I find it hard to believe he "knocked her out" and the police would consider it mutual violence.

why is everybody assuming he hit her? more than likely she was drunk.... and passed out....? the drinking probably led to their altercation in the 1st place

You can very obviously see her moving voluntarily at the end of the clip. We do not know facts but Ray does nothing except try to move her off of the elevator in this video. Ray is a good dude. She is probably drunk.

She was NOT drunk. He hit her. She was knocked out. He is a football player, he could've picked her up better than that and kicking her while she was down....uncouth and uncalled for. Now this is what you call a THUG!!!!!

That video sickens me and I think it does tell the whole story. I'm sure she was being all kinds of crazy, but was she being so crazy that a NFL running back couldn't created some sort of distance from the situation without laying a hand on her? No! They're both lucky that she regained consciousness. Disgusting

I dated a girl and she'd have a few drinks n pass out. Hardly ever ate, worked out morning n afternoon. Twice took her to AC and she passed out. Laying on floor drunk outside cabstand at Trop. Passed out like that at borgata. too. Looked just like that.
