Ravens running back Ray Rice is due in court Tuesday after he hit his fiancee with his hand and knocked her unconscious, according to a summons (as reported by ESPN).

Both Rice and his fiancee were arrested early Saturday morning after an altercation at a casino in Atlantic City, N.J. where Rice and the woman “struck each other with their hands,” according to an Atlantic City police report.

TMZ obtained and posted a video online Wednesday that showed Rice lifting his fiancee out of an elevator in the Revel Casino by her arms. Rice eventually propped the woman up after initially laying her on the ground.

Michael Diamondstein, Rice’€™s attorney, has said that the footage is authentic, but does not show the complete situation.

“The video that has been put up by TMZ shows the very end of what transpired between Ray and his fiancee,” said Diamondstein.

He later added that he would “not try this case in the media.”

The incident has been referred to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’€™s Office.
