New Ray Rice Video Shows Aftermath Of Domestic Assault

A new video showing the aftermath of Ray Rice's assault on his then-fiancee Janay at an Atlantic City, N.J. casino emerged this week.

In the security camera footage, obtained by ABC News and released on Friday, Janay Rice (then Palmer) refuses to talk to Ray when he approaches her after the attack. They later reconcile, kissing before taken away by police. Both were arrested on assault charges.

According to ABC, Rice tried to prevent the network from obtaining the footage. ABC has only released about 2 minutes of the apparently 45-minute video.

Rice knocked out his now-wife Janay in an elevator at the Revel casino in February before dragging her unconscious body across the floor. Video of the night first emerged in February, but it wasn't until September, when a more graphic video leaked, that widespread outrage against the NFL player grew.

The couple were married in March.

The treatment of Janay Rice after the incident, who is seen handcuffed in the new video, drew criticism:

"The police were not following protocol as the law and policies indicate in New Jersey," executive director of the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women Jane Shivas told the Baltimore Sun after the video was made public. "The fact that she was knocked out completely and he's much bigger than her and a football player – for them to put her in handcuffs after an injury like that seems unconscionable. It also does not follow procedure."

Ray Rice eventually pleaded not guilty to a third-degree charge of aggravated assault in May. He avoided standing trial and was accepted into a pre-trial intervention program. Ray Rice's contract with the Baltimore Ravens was terminated in September after TMZ released graphic video of him striking Janay inside the elevator.
