0327-ray-rice-01
Ray Rice was indicted today for striking his fiancée in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino -- the alleged crime was caught on surveillance video first published by TMZ Sports.


The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office announced the Baltimore Ravens star will face one count of third degree aggravated assault for the February 15 incident involving Janay Palmer.

That's a felony that could land Rice in prison for 3 to 5 years.

In the video ... Rice is seen dragging Palmer's limp body out of the elevator -- and it's unclear exactly what happened inside. Obviously, prosecutors felt their investigation gave them enough evidence to charge Rice.

At the time of the incident ... cops charged both Rice and Palmer with simple assault -- but prosecutors have now dismissed the charge against her.

How disgusting. Assaults her, knocks her unconscious and drags her body out of the elevator, and leaves her. What a loser. To any of you who think this is funny or think she deserved it, I can only hope this happens to your mother/daughter/sister, etc.

A man should never strike a woman, he should almost always walk awawy.of course some women like for there men to beat on them.just w a lk away and cool off, its better than jail time.

I don't think beating fiancee is the solution of any problem in a relationship. If any one is troubled by the behavior of the other partner, he/she leave them. Beating is not a good idea..
