Rice has been released from jail after a weekend incident allegedly involving an altercation with a woman.

Ray Rice has some explaining to do.

Over the weekend, the Ravens' top running back was arrested in Atlantic City, N.J. following a physical altercation with a woman at Revel Casino, according to a report from The Baltimore Sun.

In the report, the Ravens released a statement saying they are aware of the incident and seemed to identify the woman involved as his fiancé.

"We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancee," Ravens spokesman Chad Steele told the Sun. "We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained."

Rice's attorney, Andrew Alperstein, deemed the altercation Rice was arrested for minor. Rice has been released from jail.

Rice has built a reputation in Baltimore as being a positive role model in the community and has joined in efforts to stamp out bullying in some local schools in the area.

This incident will, at least in the short term, put a cloud over Rice when it comes to how he looks off the field.

On the field, Rice is coming off of his most disappointing season. He finished with just 660 yards after appearing in 15 of the Ravens' 16 games in 2013.
