According to the summons, Rice knocked out his fiancé Janay Palmer during their altercation at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. The summons also indicates that Palmer was knocked unconscious which is also evident in the video surveillance.
Rice’s attorney, who called the incident a “very minor physical altercation”, cautioned the public earlier today to “reserve judgment” until all the facts come out.
“We are confident that by the time all the facts are in the open, the public will have a complete &true picture of what actually transpired”
