REPORT: Ray Rice To Appeal Suspension, Claiming That Video Was Edited

Ray Rice will appeal his indefinite suspension by arguing that the video released by TMZ was edited and didn’t show the entire story. Reports are stating that the former Baltimore Ravens running back will make a case that the TMZ video that shocked the nation was a shortened version that edited out the previous circumstances that provoked him to cold-cock his future wife. Rice reportedly intends to present an argument of semantics and legal sources told Adam Schefter that the horrific video was a “cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed version of the events that took place in the Atlantic City casino elevator.” For this defense to actually work there had better be elevator footage of Jannay Rice threatening his life with a weapon for him to react with such unbridled violence, otherwise there really is no feasible explanation for his vicious reaction.
