Report: Surveillance video shows Ray Rice dragging fianceé out of elevator

After the worst season of his NFL career, Ravens running back Ray Rice is off to a rough start this offseason after he was arrested for allegedly hitting his fiancee, which TMZ appears to have video evidence of happening.

What a fall from grace it has been for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. During the 2012 offseason, Rice signed a new five-year contract for $35 million that would pay him like one of the NFL's best backs.

It was well-deserved for a player whose best year came in 2011 when he scored a franchise-record 15 touchdowns in  to go with a career-best 1,364 yards rushing while also leading Baltimore with 76 catches (704 yards).

Rice went on to help lead the Ravens to the Super Bowl in 2012, but a hip injury helped limit him to just 921 total yards in 2013.

The offseason is here, but the hits keep coming for Rice after he was arrested in an incident that took place at an Atlantic City casino for allegedly hitting his fiancee.

TMZ has posted surveillance video that shows Rice supposedly dragging his unconscious fiancee out of an elevator at an Atlantic City casino

The footage was shot on February 15th ... right before Rice and his fiancee Janay Palmer were both arrested for assault at the Revel Casino. Cops say they have video which proved both parties attacked each other.

But before the arrest, Ray can be seen trying to lift and move a seemingly unconscious Palmer out of a casino elevator. While Palmer is sprawled out on the ground, a man in a suit -- who appears to be talking into a security microphone -- approaches the situation and confronts Rice.

It's unclear if the man is security, but it sure seems that way. Moments later, as Palmer seems to regain consciousness, Rice walks away.

All of the details regarding what transpired that night have probably not been released or made public yet, but it looks bad for Rice and his image.

It doesn't help matters that this will be reviewed by the league under the NFL personal-conduct policy, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
