Owing Mills, MD, United States (4E Sports) – The wife of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice expressed remorse for her role in the altercation at a casino in Atlantic City, N.J. where she was allegedly knocked unconscious.
“I do deeply regret the role that I played in the incident that night,” said Janay Palmer Rice in a press conference without elaborating.
February court summons stated that she tried to hit her husband, who then reportedly hit her.
A video of the incident showed Ray dragging his unconscious wife out of an elevator days before their wedding.
Rice was arrested on assault charges. Neither Rice or his wife took any questions though.
The couple has gone through counseling and Janay says that things are now better.
“I can say that I am happy that we continue to work through it together, and we are continuing to strengthen our relationship and our marriage and working to being better parents for Ravyn and continuing to be role models,” said Janay Rice.
Ray Rice, who’s been accepted into a pretrial intervention program that should allow him to avoid jail time, did not apologize to his wife at the press conference.
