Ray RiceOn Friday, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City following what police are calling a “very minor physical altercation” on the boardwalk.

The 27-year-old former Super Bowl champion and his fiancee, Janay Palmer, were both arrested and charged with simple assault and domestic violence.

According to Rice’s recently hired attorney, the NFL star was involved in an argument, but no additional details were given.

Revel Casino, a $2.4 billion casino property that opened in April of 2012, is the newest of Atlantic City’s 12 casinos, but has failed so far to gain any traction in the market. Less than a year after opening it’s doors, the casino filed for bankruptcy.

Rice isn’t the only NFL player to make headlines in the gambling world. Michael Merriweather, a former linebacker with the Pittsburgh Steelers, recently settled a lawsuit against former employer the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Pennsylvania.
