Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice Answers Questions, Apologizes for Domestic Violence Incident
Updated: Saturday, August 2 2014, 08:43 PM EDT
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice held a press conference Thursday afternoon and - for the first time - answered questions from the media about the incident that left him with an assault charge.
Rice started out by saying, "My actions that night were totally inexcusable...that night I just play over and over in my head. That's not me."
He added, "Last time I didn't publicly apologize to my wife...the one thing I wanted to do today is apologize to my wife."
The running back stressed that his apology also went out to "anybody who's been through any sort of domestic violence...Violence of any kind...is just not right...shouldn't be tolerated."
Last week the NFL announced it would suspend Ray Rice for the first two games of the season without pay and fine him $58,000. NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell said Rice violated the league's personal conduct policy for his February arrest when he and his then-fiance Janay Palmer were arrested for fighting in Atlantic City.
At Thursday's press conference Rice said the NFL punishment hurts "but it hurts more that I'm a father and have to explain what happened to my daughter."
Video obtained by TMZ sports showed the Ravens star dragging Janay, motionless, out of an elevator at the Revel Casino. Rice and Palmer were married one day after Rice was indicted by a grand jury on third-degree aggravated assault.
On Thursday Rice would not give any details on what happened inside the elevator on the night in question, saying he "will not go backwards."
In May Rice entered a not-guilty plea. He was accepted into the Pre-Trial intervention program; if he successfully completes the program it would result in the charge against him being dropped and his record expunged.
After the suspension was announced Thursday Rice said, "It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but that's my fault...As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents."
