Rice's fiancee, Janay Palmer, has also been charged with simple assault-domestic violence. According to her summons, she is being charged because she hit Rice with her hand. You can see the video below that TMZ released on Wednesday.
Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein, also released the following statement, "We are confident that by the time all the facts are in the open, the public will have a complete and true picture of what transpired. We just ask that the public remember what a high-character, good person Ray is, and that they reserve judgment until all facts are out."
