San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald has been arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence. In light of the new NFL policy, and Jim Harbaugh's own previous comments, the resolution of this case will be something to track closely.


NBC Bay Area is reporting San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald has been arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Damian Trujillo is reporting the alleged victim was pregnant. According to Matt Maiocco, McDonald was booked into Santa Clara County Jail, and no bail was allowed. There is no word yet on when he will be released from jail.

This incident comes mere days after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a new policy that includes increased discipline for domestic violence and sexual assault crimes. A first offense will result in a 6-game suspension, and a second offense will result in a life-time ban from the NFL. Roger Goodell's letter to the owners does not specify what is required for the imposition of the 6-game suspension. My guess is there must disposition of the case. If that's the case, it may be a while before any suspension is handed down.

You all may recall Jim Harbaugh's previous comments a couple years back regarding giving players second chances. Harbaugh said that if you laid your hands on a woman there was no second chance. We don't know enough details to say anything about this case, but if the allegations prove true, Ray McDonald may not be a 49er for much longer.

On Thursday, in a letter sent to the owners of the National Football League’s thirty-two teams, the commissioner Roger Goodell introduced new punishment guidelines for any league personnel who commit offenses relating to domestic violence or sexual assault. The first offense would draw a six-game suspension, without pay, while the second would lead to immediate banishment from the league. There are, however, caveats: the first suspension could be shorter or longer, depending on “mitigating factors”; and anyone who is kicked out after a second offense will be able to apply for reinstatement after a year.

Goodell, you talked a good game about now coming down harder on players who are guilty of domestic violence, now let's see you follow through with it.

Vernon Davis 'didn't see anything'



 Ray McDonald was not made available during the San Francisco 49ers' open locker room period Tuesday afternoon, some 48 hours after he posted bail on his arrest for domestic violence which resulted in "visible injuries" on the victim, according to the police report.

His absence left his teammates to speak for him, even if they were reluctant to talk about the night in question.

Still, tight end Vernon Davis said a larger number of 49ers players were at the party Saturday night in which the alleged incident between McDonald and his girlfriend took place.

"I'm not sure if it was half [the team] or 75 percent," he said. "I know guys came to support Ray on his birthday. We love each other so we have to support each other."

The domestic violence incident that involved Ray McDonald, pictured, was at a party attended by several Niners, tight end Vernon Davis said.
But as to factual details of the goings-on at Bentley Ridge Drive in San Jose?

"I was actually leaving, on my way out, and I saw the cops around," said Davis, who initially posted a photo on his Instagram account celebrating the party, before taking it down, "Just because," he said.

"As far as what went on, I don't really know. I wish I could tell you guys something.

"I didn't see anything. I didn't hear anything. So I don't know what went on over there. I wish I could put my finger on it. I don't know. All I do know is Ray is a great guy. He's awesome. He has great character. Everyone on the team knows that. He's a guy of good integrity, great character, hard worker, good player. He comes to work each and every day."

Including, apparently Tuesday, as he was reportedly allowed to practice.

But if and when McDonald is hit with a six-game suspension under NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's more stringent domestic violence policy, it will be another blow to the 49ers' already weakened defense.

Inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman is out for at least six games as he recovers from a knee injury suffered in the NFC title game. Aldon Smith was hit with a nine-game suspension for numerous transgressions. And nose tackle Glenn Dorsey was placed on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list on Monday as he continues to rehab from his torn left biceps.

"I mean, losing those guys ... you can look across the board and find every reason to run the other way or make excuses as to why you may not be as good or why we can't be as good, but at the end of the day, you're only as good as the guys that are out there on the field anyway," said inside linebacker Patrick Willis. "So whether it's a guy that goes down with injury or whatever reason a guy can't be out there, whether he's taking some plays off, it's about the guys that's out there on the field playing.

"For us, all these guys have our support, injured, situations, whatever they may be. At the end of the day, we just got to win ballgames."

Coach Jim Harbaugh earlier in the day reiterated his zero-tolerance policy for domestic violence in a radio interview on KNBR.

"If someone physically abuses a woman and/or physically or mentally abuses or hurts a child, then there's no understanding," he said, "there's no tolerance for that."

The message was given again to the team on Tuesday.

"Everybody knows domestic violence is a bad thing, and he does tell us he's not tolerating stuff like that," said linebacker Corey Lemonier. "He emphasized it today.

"That's distractions. We have a game this weekend and we're just trying to focus on that and not let us get deterred about these things."

Said Willis: "We never condone anything of this magnitude, but it is what it is and nobody knows [the full story], you know, there's two sides to every story. So we just hope that everything gets situated and we can get right back out on the field and everybody can be at peace."
