After video surfaced corroborating witness accounts that Ray Rice knocked out his fiancee after an altercation in a casino, his lawyer spoke to TMZ.
He is no longer describing the incident as “minor”.
“Neither Ray nor myself will try this case in the media.”
Rice’s attorney hasn’t seen the video, but had this to say when told it didn’t look to good for Ray.
“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.”
Here is the video below and you can judge for yourself.
