Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice "struck Janay Palmer (his fiancee) with his hand, rendering her unconscious" according to the summons issued in Atlantic City Municipal Court on Wednesday.

The couple was arrested early Saturday morning following an altercation at a casino, according to Atlantic City, N.J., police.

Rice, 27, and Janay Palmer, 26, were spotted on security cameras engaging in a physical struggle. Both were charged with simple assault-domestic violence, and they were released with a summons to appear in court. Rice allegedly is seen on the footage removing Palmer from the elevator while she remained unconscious.

"The complaint summons indicates that both Rice and Palmer struck each other with their hands," according to a previous police statement. No injuries were reported at the time of the arrest.

Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein said this week, "There was an argument that included Ray. I can't give any specifics because we haven't seen the document yet. Once we're able to go through the evidence, it should wind up to be little more than a misunderstanding."

The Ravens released a statement that read, "We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancee. We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained."

General manager Ozzie Newsome, conducting a press conference to announce a contract extension with pass rusher Terrell Suggs, said Monday that Rice remains in the team's plans.

Rice recently completed the second year of a five-year, $35 million contract. He finished 2013 with 214 carries for 660 yards and four touchdowns, his lowest figures in all three categories since he was a rookie in 2008.
