The Baltimore Ravens are standing behind running back Ray Rice, who was indicted today for aggravated assault after allegedly knocking his fiancee unconscious last month.
The team issued a brief statement after Rice’s indictment was announced.
“This is part of the due process for Ray. We know there is more to Ray Rice than this one incident,” the statement read.
There may be more to Rice than this one incident, but the reports about this one incident are very serious: Police reportedly have surveillance video of Rice knocking his fiancee out. That video has not been publicly released, although another video that has been made public appears to show Rice dragging his unconscious fiancee out of an elevator.
Rice faces three to five years in prison on the aggravated assault charge.
