WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The NFL has finally reached a verdict in Ray Rice’s domestic violence case — stemming from a February incident in an Atlantic City casino — administering a two-game suspension to start the 2014 regular season on Thursday.

Rice and his then-fiancée Janay Palmer were arrested and charged with simple assault-domestic violence on Feb. 15, after an argument at Revel Casino left Palmer unconscious and being dragged from an elevator by Rice, as a reputation-damaging surveillance video which surfaced depicted.

Rice and Palmer married later that month, and the charges were later dropped.

Rice later apologized for the incident, holding a public press conference alongside his wife, saying he “failed miserably.” That press conference would fall under heavy scrutiny, as his wife would also apologize for “the role I played in the incident that night.”
