As if the San Francisco 49ers didn’t have enough things go wrong these season. The team has decided to release Ray McDonald because of an alleged sexual assault.
The San Jose Police Department said:
“On December 16, 2014 at approximately 10:43 am, the San Jose Police Department received a call from a local area hospital regarding a possible sexual assault victim who was receiving treatment. Officers responded and made contact with the adult female victim. The victim alleged she was possible sexually assaulted a day prior. The preliminary investigation revealed the alleged suspect was Ray McDonald.
The San Jose Police Department Sexual Assaults Investigations unit was notified and responded to conduct follow-up investigation. Based on preliminary investigation, detectives secured a search warrant and served it at the alleged suspect’s residence in San Jose.
No arrests have been made. The investigation is active and on-going.”
Last month McDonald was cleared of domestic violence charges.
This season he has had 39 combined tackles and 3 sacks.
McDonald may be the first person tried under the new personal conduct policy that the NFL put in place last week.
