An attorney for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice says he has paid an outstanding citation he was issued in Cecil County Super Bowl Sunday.
According to online court records, Raymell Maurice Rice, 27, was issued a $70 ticket on Feb. 2 for operating a vehicle with unauthorized window tinting on southbound Interstate 95 in Cecil County. His attorney said he paid the ticket Friday.
Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration officials said individuals who receive citations have 30 days from the date of issuance to pay the fine or request a court date. Those who don't are sent a failure to comply notice, which states their license will be suspended in roughly 26 days if the citation is left unpaid.
Buel Young, a spokesman for the motor vehicle association, said suspensions are lifted after the fines have been paid.
"The suspension is to incentivize the individual to take care of their obligation," he said.
Court records show Rice was issued a notice on March 10. As of Friday, Young said Rice currently has a valid license.
The outstanding citation was first reported by WMAR.
The running back was indicted Thursday in New Jersey on the charge of aggravated assault in connection with a February incident where he is accused of attacking his fiancee in an Atlantic City elevator.
