Ray McDonald and the Santa Clara Police Department must be quite familiar with each other by now.
McDonald, the NFL defensive lineman who was arrested on Monday for an alleged domestic violence incident, was arrested again on Wednesday. This time McDonald was arrested for violating a restraining order that was issued as a result of Monday’s incident, the Santa Clara Police Department said. At least this time around there’s no NFL team embarrassed by him, considering he was cut on Monday by the Chicago Bears.
McDonald spent his first eight seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before the team cut him last December, following an arrest for domestic violence (he wasn’t charged) and an accusation of sexual assault.
McDonald was out on $15,000 bail after Monday’s incident. McDonald violated the order at a residence in Santa Clara on Wednesday afternoon. On Monday he was arrested after he was accused of physically assaulting his ex-fiancee while she held their child. McDonald’s lawyer said there was an argument but no physical confrontation.
On Wednesday, after being informed McDonald had violated the restraining order, Santa Clara detectives found McDonald at a nearby Togo’s Sandwiches restaurant. The police report said McDonald was arrested without incident on Wednesday.
