Former Ravens RB can return to the NFL, judge says

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was captured on camera knocking out his now-wife, won his appeal and can return to the NFL.

Judge Jones determined Rice did not mislead the league and said, “Indefinite suspension was an abuse of discretion and must be vacated.”

Rice said he told NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell everything about what happened that night in the elevator with his now-wife. Goodell first suspended him for two games.

Goodell then extended Rice’s suspension indefinitely when video from inside the elevator went public. The commissioner claimed Rice didn’t tell the NFL the whole story.

“It was inconsistent with the way he described what happened,” said Goodell.

The judge ruled that the NFL was aware there was video from a camera inside the elevator and NFL Security had reported its existence but the league never asked to see it.

In an interview with ESPN, Rice’s wife defended her husband, saying he told the league the entire story.  She also acknowledged what Rice did to her was wrong and said both she and Rice have learned from the incident.

Rice is now a free agent.

In a statement the NFL said, “We respect Judge Jones’s decision.

Two-alarm fire causes severe damage to Gaston Co. home

A two-alarm fire displaced a family in Gaston County on Friday.

According to the Lucia-Riverbend Fire Department, the husband had just finished mowing the lawn and put the lawnmower in the basement.

Later, he heard smoke alarms going off. He tried to get to where the mower was, but there was too much smoke. The fire may have started with something stored in the basement, according to officials.

The house will most likely be a total loss. The floor above the basement collapsed into the basement. The structural integrity of the house was compromised.

Officials will not have the fire’s official cause for some time. The man’s wife was not home.

The couple is planning to stay with neighbors overnight.
