49er Ray McDonald accused of domestic violence

49ers' DE Ray McDonald Arrested For Domestic Abuse

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Police in Northern California say San Francisco 49er Ray McDonald has been arrested on domestic violence charges.

San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol says the 29-year-old defensive end was taken into custody early Sunday after officers responded to a home in an upscale neighborhood.

McDonald was jailed on felony domestic violence charges. Santa Clara County sheriff's Sgt. Kurt Stenderup says McDonald was released after posting bail.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties last week for players accused of domestic violence. Players will be subject to a six-week suspension for a first domestic violence offense and banishment from the league for a second under the new policy.

San Francisco 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke said in a statement Sunday that the team takes "such matters" seriously but isn't commenting on the allegations involving McDonald without more information.

McDonald has been playing for San Francisco since he was drafted as a third-round pick in 2007.

Ray McDonald is a prime example of a real man. Hitting a woman and wearing extensions, how much more masculine can he get?

As we all now know the vast majority of domestic violence is created by women against men. Most are false allegations to gain unearned income and manic control through our gender bias against men domestic law courts. men, fathers and his children have suffered in silence for too long.
