MAYS LANDING, N.J. » Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is due in a New Jersey courtroom to face aggravated assault charges stemming from an incident with his then-girlfriend in an Atlantic City casino elevator.

Rice, the former Rutgers star, goes to court Thursday on charges of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.

The charge involves a Feb. 15 incident at Revel Casino Hotel.

Security video obtained by TMZ Sports shows Rice removing the motionless body of Janay Palmer from the elevator.

The couple got married a day after Rice was indicted on the charge.

Originally, Palmer and Rice were charged with simple assault, but the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office reviewed the case and dropped the charge against Palmer.

His attorney says Rice and Palmer are living happily in Maryland with their young daughter.
