What happens to men who get caught on camera assaulting their lady loves in an elevator? Well, if you're an NFL star, NOTHING!
That sad fact is the reality for one football player in New Jersey this week.
Ray Rice, the gridiron grinch who brutally beat his then-girlfriend - and now wife, the former Janay Palmer - last year in an elevator is getting a clean slate. WHAT?!

After Thanksgiving, a judge ruled that Ray Rice was to be reinstated into the NFL after he was suspended for knocking out his now-wife Janay Rice in an Atlantic City elevator.
And since the legal proceedings are over, Janay gets to tell her side of the story now.
On Monday, she confirmed to Today's Matt Lauer that it was the first time Ray had ever hit her, and that she feels betrayed by the

We have to say this is still kind of shocking.
We knew Ray Rice was trying to be reinstated to the NFL this year, but we weren't sure it was going to happen considering the brutality of his domestic violence case.
But now, his indefinite suspension has been overturned.

A judge just ruled that NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell abused his role when he extended Rice's 2-game suspension and made it an indefinite suspension. The judge determined that Goddell had no right to change the suspension after the video came out because Rice had already told the truth about what had happened.
However, the Baltimore Ravens did cut ties with Rice when this whole incident blew up, so it's unclear if Rice will be picked up by any team.

Just days after Adrian Peterson avoided jail time in his child abuse case, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to immediately switch his attention over to another ugly scandal.
The commish made his way to a New York courtroom yesterday where he testified and was cross examined in Ray Rice's hearing to appeal his indefinite suspension from the league.
The hearing stems from the footballer's suspension that took place nearly two months ago after footage showed him punching his now wife Janay Rice in an elevator, knocking her unconscious.

Every Halloween there are always people who get a little too creative with their costume ideas and take things too far.
We're sure lots of people have pretty weird ideas for costumes (sexy Kim Jong-un) but most don't act on them.
Though some bad eggs have apparently been dressing up in Ray Rice jerseys and dragging around blow up dolls (representing his now wife Janay), mocking their violent elevator incident from earlier this year.
That's just awful.
