Ray Rice blames alcohol for elevator altercation, swears off drinking
Ray Rice says hard liquor acted as the fuel that triggered his elevator rage against his then-fiance Janay Palmer.
The former Ravens running back also says he hasn’t touched the stuff in months.
Rice told the Baltimore Ravens he and Janay Palmer had been drinking HEAVILY before the altercation. Rice is telling friends he becomes a different person when he boozes it up … so he’s changed his life. But he hasn’t changed that much, because we’re told he still drinks wine … just not hard liquor.
Our sources say Ray and his wife have gotten deep into religion since the February incident — they were both baptized in March when they decided to become Born again Christians.
We’re also told they’ve also done religious mentoring with other couples … including NFL players and their wives.
Rice issued a statement Tuesday saying he’s working “through this” and that the couple has “a lot of people praying” for them.
