NFL Received Ray Rice Knockout Video In April, Says AP Source
Just two days ago, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement on behalf of the league stating that officials did not see the newly released footage of Ray Rice knocking out his fiancée in a hotel elevator before announcing his two-game suspension.
“We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator. That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today,” the statement read.
Many were under the impression that Goodell wasn’t being truthful and now, an Associated Press source may be confirming those suspicions. According to the source, law enforcement officials sent a copy of the elevator footage to an NFL official two months after the incident, which occurred in February.
Revel Casino sources have also stated that they would’ve willingly sent NFL officials the elevator footage had they asked.
League reps have yet to comment on this latest development.
