Ray Rice

Scene of Elevator Assault

Set to Close Down

8/13/2014 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

050114_ray_rice_launch_v2Ray Rice won't ever have to revisit the scene of his infamous domestic violence incident ... that's because the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ is closing down.

The casino will close by September 10, making it the fourth casino in AC to shut down this year. Revel only opened in April 2012, at a cost of $2.4 billion. 

Ultimately, the casino's legacy might end up being the place where Rice was caught on surveillance cameras dragging his seemingly unconscious fiancée out of an elevator ... before they were both arrested for domestic violence.

Rice struck a deal and served no jail time for the incident. He was suspended by the NFL for two games.

If you're thinking there's a connection between Rice's arrest and the hotel's downfall -- a Revel rep tells us they've seen no evidence of that. Fact is, all AC casinos are just hurting.

He will never live this down... Alot of these players are abusive in some form and never caught... If she wud have reported she was being abused, no one wud have believed her but since he was caught they had no choice but to respond. 2 games is BS smh the most fukked up part about this situation is that he only married her so she couldn't testify.. Smh
