BALTIMORE (AP) - A new video that appears to show Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice striking his then-fiancee in an elevator last February has been released on a website.

The grainy video by TMZ Sports apparently shows Rice and Janay Palmer in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. Each hits the other before Rice knocks Palmer off her feet and into a railing. An earlier TMZ video showed Rice dragging Palmer, now his wife, from the elevator.

Rice's lawyer, Michael Diamondstein, would not comment to The Associated Press. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the latest video was not made available to the league and "no one in our office has seen it until today." Phone messages and emails to the Ravens were not immediately returned.

Rice was suspended for two games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who later toughened penalties for domestic violence.
