Former Baltimore Ravens NFL running back Ray Rice and his wife Janay arrive for a hearing at a New York City office building

Former Baltimore Ravens NFL running back Ray Rice and his wife Janay arrive for a hearing at a New York City office building November 5, 2014. Rice is making his case on Wednesday to return to the field after the National Football League indefinitely suspended him from the game for claims of domestic violence. Rice, 27, claims that he was punished twice for the same offense, a one-punch knockout of his then-fiancee Janay Palmer during a February altercation at an Atlantic City, New Jersey, casino.

Ray Rice was involved in an altercation with his then-fiancee in February in an Atlantic City casino. This summer, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Rice for two games for his actions, in which he knocked his now-wife Janay Rice unconscious with a punch. However, when video of the actual punch surfaced last week, Goodell, under extreme public criticism, increased the suspension to "indefinite." Rice's team, the Baltimore Ravens, also cut ties with him. (For a complete timeline of the Rice case, click here.)
