Highly disturbing footage has been leaked via TMZ which shows NFL’s Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice physically assaulting his wife Janay Palmer. The incident which occurred in February and back then it was just footage of Ray dragging an unresponsive Janay (his fiancée at the time they weren’t married)  out of the elevator that leaked to the Internet. His team & the NFL responded to the incident by giving the NFL star a flimsy 2 game suspension.

Months after the February incident, full footage of the elevator assault has been leaked online and it shows the couple arguing before getting into the elevator, inside the elevator the football star delivers two deadly blows on his fiancee’s face, the punches knock her out cold and left her unconscious! He then proceeded to drag her out of the elevator, when he was seen by a hotel employee who reported the incident.
