CCTV footage from the lobby of now-closed Revel casino released yesterday shows what happened after NFL player Ray Rice knocked out Janay Rice, then his wife-to-be. And why she may have gone ahead to marry him and is still defending him today.
The video was obtained exclusively by ABC News, and shows a distraught Janay Palmer, and the Baltimore Ravens player handcuffed by police and giving on-the-site statements about their earlier fight. We can't hear what they are saying but as they are taken away in the same elevator, Janay leans into her fiance and they share a kiss.
Ray Rice and then fiancee Janay Palmer were handcuffed the night of the Atlantic City elevator fight ... and even kissed each other in an elevator as police escorted them out of the casino.
The surveillance video posted by ABC News shows cops seated with Ray and Janay at separate tables in the Revel Hotel and Casino.
About 1 minute into the video police start to walk Ray and Janay out, they put them both together in the same elevator. Remember this isn't long after Ray knocked out Janay in an elevator.
Both Ray and Janay were arrested for assault, but charges were quickly dropped against Janay.
I can't imagine the relationship between a couple that will fight one minute, knock each other out literally and then kiss and make up soon after while being led away by police, but they are not me, but them.
Ray and Janay Rice insist they are fine now and have worked out their issues. Wishing them the best, especially now that Ray Rice has had his suspension lifted.
