Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice apologized Monday to his wife and his fans following an offseason arrest for a domestic violence charge.

Rice has been a big story nationally as the argument over the length of his suspension (he got two games) became more and more contentious. Coverage of the story has extended far beyond Baltimore, spreading internationally to outlets like the International Business Times and the Daily Mail.

KSMP, a FOX affiliate in Minneapolis-St. Paul, did a segment on Rice’s apology last night, but the accompanying clip was wildy inappropriate. Whoops.
