Chicago Bears Defensive End, Ray McDonald was arrested Monday for domestic violence and child endangerment. Officials have not released any additional details on this arrest.
A dark cloud seems to be following Ray McDonald.
In December 2014, the San Francisco 49ers announced they were cutting ties with McDonald, after he was accused of rape by intoxication.
A local San Jose hospital notified authorities about a woman who came in for treatment and then reported the incident.
According to the San Jose Police Department, McDonald is still part of an on-going investigation, but he hasn’t been charged with the crime.
Prior to the alleged sexual assault, McDonald was arrested in August 2014, on suspicion of domestic violence, but due to a lack of evidence, the Santa Clara County prosecutor’s office dismissed the charges, and closed the case.
The NFL investigated and found that McDonald had not violated the new personal conduct policy according to Steve Murray.
And now comes this new arrest.
The NFL has tightened sanctions against its players following the Ray Rice arrest, and the outrage of fans and organizations.
The Bears have a one-year contract with McDonald, worth $1.5 million, that is not guaranteed.
The NFL could impose penalties, depending on the outcome of this new arrest.
NFL sanctions include a six-week suspension for a first offense, and one year for a second.
