Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was formally indicted in a New Jersey court on Thursday. He will face on count of third degree aggravated assault for an incident that took place last month where he allegedly struck his fiancee Janay Palmer and was later seen dragging her unconscious body out of an elevator. Or, should we say, his wife Janay Palmer.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Rice and Palmer got married Friday night in a private ceremony. Apparently the two have patched things up, and the fact that police allegedly have a video that shows Rice knocking Palmer unconscious could not keep them from continuing their life together.
Police originally charged both Rice and Palmer with simple assault, but the charges against Palmer have been dropped. John Harbaugh said earlier this month that the two were working through their issues and were attending a couples seminar together.
Rice could face three to five years in prison if he is found guilty of third degree aggravated assault. Between winning the Super Bowl, being arrested and getting married, the 27-year-old veteran has had an action-packed last year or so.
