Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested in Atlantic City early Saturday morning after a physical altercation with his fiancee, according to news reports

There were no injuries to either party, Sgt. Monica McMenamin told The Atlantic City Press. A simple assault complaint was signed against each by the responding officer.

Officers Cuong Sam and Byron Hargis responded to the Revel Casino just before 3 a.m., and were taken to Rice and Janay Palmer, the Press reported.

Surveillance video shows both parties were involved in a physical altercation, according to the report.

The complaint summons indicates that both Rich and Palmer struck each other with their hands, McMenamin said.

"Both Palmer and Rice refused any medical attention as no injuries were reported by either party," McMenamin said.

The couple were transported to the Atlantic City Police Department holding facility, and later released on a summons to appear in court.

The Baltimore Sun reported that Rice's attorney Andrew Alperstein described it as a "very minor physical altercation," identifying Palmer as Rice's fiancee.

"We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancee," the Baltimore Ravens said in a news release. "We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained."

Rice is a three-time Pro Bowler with the Ravens. After helping lead the Ravens to a Super Bowl title in February 2013, Rice struggled last season, rushing for 660 yards on 214 carries.

Not perfect I still don't agree with your hitting a woman back . Is it to much to just walk away ? When the police get there after you swing back tell them that and see how far that gets you . If you would rather go to jail and get a Battery charge then by all means that is your business . I don't know about you but I am 6ft 2 and I weight 200 lbs and have been a bricklayer my whole adult life . I would be afraid to hit half the men I see in fear of killing them let alone a 5ft 2 woman who goes about 105 Lbs soaking ringing wet. Know if a man hits a man to me its on I would fight but I believe we should treat every woman as we would treat our own Mother !!! Would you hit your own Mother . I don't care how you try to twist it a woman beater is a woman beater ! And I would not teach my kids to be abusive to anyone .

Justin Case U are right . I don't care what a woman hits a man with if you are a pussy and cant handle a woman's slap you don't belong dating women . I have been hit a few times by girls when I was younger and most of the time I deserved it . I never hit them back . Men should treat women like they would treat there own mother . I guess the guys on here that condone hitting a woman back would slap there own mother. To all you guys who condone hitting women all I can say is get a grip and take it like a man . Know if a Man swings on me they might as well get ready for a fight .

Keep your damn hands to yourself. Cease with this nonsense about women having the right to slap and hit men. If anyone put their hands on another in an aggressive and noncocsenual manner, they should expect a similar response. There are pictures all over the internet of punk ass cops beating women for no good reason and nothing is being said or done in America. From the punk ass Black cop in Philly who punched a Puerto Rican in the face, to the coward CHIP who was recently filmed grounding and pounding a mentally disabled a Black woman; cops are beating the shit out of women all over America in the name of law enforcement and we are allowing these bums to get away with it.

There is a Puerto Rican cop in Orlando Florida who has made a career out of physically beating women for no reason. He is a real mean bastard, and he has yet to be fired or even disciplined for his actions, although this bastard has really hurt some women. In one incident, he is seem punching a woman face first into the pavement which caused her her to lose many of her teeth. Why haven't women banded together and called for this bastard's head.

It ALL starts with the law enforcement. The worst bullies and physical abusers are........... COPS! There are stories and actual videos all over the internet of of real bad cops beating and evening killing men, women and even children. Why is everyone overlooking these cowards? Just look at this little punk cop down in one Georgia town who has literally terrorized the entire town.
