Rice was arrested and charged with simple assault-domestic violence on Feb. 15 after allegedly striking his fiancée, Janay Palmer, unconscious at the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City. Palmer was also charged with simple assault.
Prosecutors took the case to a grand jury, which returned a more serious charge of third-degree aggravated assault.
