Video captured Saturday at an Atlantic City casino allegedly shows Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice dragging his unconscious fiancee out of an elevator just moments before the two were arrested, TMZ has revealed.

Rice and Janay Palmer were both arrested for assault at the Revel Casino early Saturday morning and have since been released on a summons.

The footage shows a man, allegedly Rice, carrying an unconscious woman outside of the elevator and dropping her on the ground like a rag doll.

A man in a suit then walks over to Rice, and the two exchange words. Just as the woman begins to regain consciousness, Rice walks away.

“Neither Ray nor myself will try this case in the media,” Rice’s attorney told TMZ. “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,” the attorney said.

Police say they have video that proves both Rice and the woman attacked each other. The couple declined medical attention and neither reported any injuries.

The Ravens released a statement Sunday night.

“We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiance,” the Ravens said. “We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained.”

Rice played at Rutgers University in New Jersey and was drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft by the Ravens.
