A third video has emerged from the night Ray Rice punched his now-wife, Janay Palmer (now Rice), in Atlantic City. Some 45 minutes of footage obtained by ABC News—unveiled after an unsuccessful legal attempt by Rice to bar its release—show shifting emotions between the pair. At first, Palmer pushes the former Baltimore Ravens running back away when he seeks to get near her; security guards keep him back. Palmer appears angry and later weeps.

Palmer also receives the offer of a wheelchair and first aid from hotel staff. Finally, the two are seen apparently kissing in an elevator after they've been handcuffed, ABC notes. In a hearing this week, Rice's lawyer said he "literally does not talk to me about the events (at the casino) without crying—to this day.” Also this week, Rice made a rare appearance in Baltimore at a Toys for Tots Fundraiser, the Baltimore Sun reports.
