NEW ROCHELLE - New Rochelle native and Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been replaced by another player for a community event in Maryland that he was supposed to headline Friday. 

The replacement comes after Rice, 27, was arrested over the weekend. Rice and his fiancee Janay Palmer were captured on video moments after they allegedly had a fight Saturday at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. According to police, they struck each other and both were subsequently arrested.

Image consultant Scarlett De Bease says the video could tarnish his image, his standing with the NFL and his reputation as a community leader both in Baltimore and in New Rochelle.

Rice was originally scheduled to appear in Atlantic City court next Tuesday, but the police have asked the prosecutor's office to review the case to ensure all appropriate charges are considered.
