The full video of the elevator incident between Baltimore Ravens running back, Ray Rice and his then Fiancee has been released.
The video released by TMZ.com starts off showing Ravens running back Ray Rice and his Fiancee, Janay Palmer in front of the elevators waiting for one. When they enter the elevator, before the doors even close, Rice hit her with his left hand, his fiancee looked in shock, and proceeded to take a step towards Rice.
At that moment is when Rice struck her with his left hand, hitting her hard enough that it knocked her on the ground, it also looked as if she hit her head on the hand railing on the way down. The video continues with him dragging her out the elevator and security trying to figure out what happened.
Before this clip was released Monday, a video of Rice dragging Palmer out the elevator was released earlier this year. Rice was not sentenced to jail and received a two game suspension by the NFL.
There are two different reports on whether the NFL has access to the full video prior to the two game suspension.
According to ESPN New York's Jane McManus, the NFL had access to the full elevator video.
However, Chris Morensen of ESPN tweeted out Monday "NFL: Ray Rice video was not made available to them, despite request of law enforcement. Nothing on whether NFL had account of what happened."
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement on Monday that the league had not been given the video before TMZ released it.
The two game suspension handed down by the NFL caught a lot of criticism, since then the NFL has changed it's domestic violence offense policy. Under the new rule, first time offenders will receive a six game suspension, the second incident will result in a lifetime ban.
