NFL: Bears defender McDonald arrested again
Chicago Bears defensive end Ray McDonald faces his third accusation of illegal violence in nine months after being arrested Monday on charges of domestic violence and child endangerment.
Police in Santa Clara, California, confirmed the latest arrest of the former San Francisco 49ers defender, who was released by that National Football League club last December.
McDonald was arrested last August on suspicion of felony domestic violence but he was never charged. Last month, the NFL cleared McDonald of any violation of its personal conduct policy from that incident.
Last December, a woman accused him of sexual assault. That case remains under investigation with no charges filed against McDonald. The 49ers released him after the allegation, citing a pattern of poor decision making.
McDonald has said he will sue his accuser in the second incident, saying security video from his home will show their encounter was consensual.
Bears chairman George McCaskey reportedly had reservations about signing McDonald but did so last March at the urging of general manager Ryan Pace and after meeting McDonald.
