Former FBI Director to Probe Rice Case Amid NFL Video Questions

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller will conduct an independent probe into the National Football League’s handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence case, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last night in a news release.

The announcement came hours after the NFL said it was looking into an Associated Press report that a law enforcement official sent the league a video five months ago of Rice punching his fiancee in the head and knocking her unconscious.
