Ray Rice: No excuse for my actions
(CNN) -- Ray Rice, the Baltimore Ravens running back suspended by the NFL for two games after video showed him dragging his then-fiancee (now his wife) from an elevator, told reporters on Thursday his actions were "inexcusable."
"You know that's not me," he said. "You know that's something I have to live ... with the rest of my life."
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last week the running back would be suspended without pay for the first two games of the 2014 regular season.
He was also fined an additional game check for "conduct detrimental to the NFL," according to a league news release.
Rice resolved the charges stemming from the incident with his wife and entered a pretrial intervention program in May, the NFL said. Under the program, he won't be prosecuted, and the charges will be expunged after a year, the league said.
Speaking at a news conference, Rice said he let down his family, teammates and the city of Baltimore. He said he knows his two-year-old daughter might read about this Google one day.
"I let so many people down because of 30 seconds in my life that you know I know I can't take back."
