Baltimore Ravens running back and former Rutgers University football
player Ray Rice will be arraigned on a third-degree charge of aggravated
assault Thursday morning in Mays Landing, The Press of Atlantic City reports.
Rice and his now wife Janay Palmer, 26, were charged with simple assault following a physical altercation
outside the Revel in February.

Rice holds 11 Rutgers University rushing records, including career yards and
career touchdowns. He was drafted by the Ravens in 2008, and won Super Bowl
