Judge dismisses domestic violence charges against Ray Rice

A judge in New Jersey has dismissed domestic violence charges against Ray Rice, who was captured by a surveillance camera knocking his then-fiancee unconscious in a hotel elevator.

Judge Michael Donio dismissed the charges Thursday after the Atlantic County prosecutor told him the former Baltimore Ravens running back had completed the terms of his pretrial intervention.

Under terms of the program, Rice paid $125 in fines and received anger management counseling.

Rice was charged with third-degree aggravated assault. His attorney described what happened in February 2014 as "little more than a misunderstanding."

Videos released by TMZ showed him pulling his fiancee out of an elevator at the Revel Casino Hotel after he struck her.

The two have since married.

An arbitrator overturned his indefinite suspension from the NFL.
