Breaking News: Bears Release Fmr 49ers DE AfterArrested for Domestic Violence/Childhood Endangerment Charges

Just out of NFL Network, the Chicago Bears have officially released former 49ers DE Ray McDonald following an arrest on misdemeanor domestic violence/Childhood endangerment chargers. As the story on NFL.com states, “According to the police report, officers were dispatched at 3:48 a.m. to a disturbance at McDonald’s Santa Clara residence where they learned McDonald ‘physically assaulted the victim while she was holding a baby.’ McDonald left the residence before police arrived. He was later located and arrested in San Jose.” This isn’t his first run in with the law, however, in August (2014) McDonald was arrested for felony domestic violence, but was not charged and played in the entire season last year, and he also  was arrested for suspicion of DUI in 2010. McDonald was released in December by the 49ers after he was an alleged suspect in a sexual assault investigation. The Bears signed McDonald to a $1.5 million non-guaranteed contract on March 24. Chicago GM Ryan Pace issued a statement earlier on the release of McDonald: “We believe in second chances, but when we signed Ray we were very clear what our expectations were if he was to remain a Bear. He was not able to meet the standard and the decision was made to release him.” In his 4 seasons in the NFL, McDonald had 112 tackles with 14.5 sacks.
