Ravens running back Ray Rice has been indicted on one count of aggravated assault in connection with an incident with his fiancee last month in Atlantic City.
A press release from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says that Rice was indicted for “attempting to cause significant bodily injury, and/or purposely or knowing causing such injury, and/or recklessly causing such injury under extreme indifference to the value of human life.”
When Rice was initially arrested, his attorney claimed Rice and his fiancee had only a “very minor physical altercation.” Rice’s fiancee was initially also arrested for allegedly assaulting Rice, but that charge has been dismissed.
If Rice is convicted he faces three to five years in prison.
