Bears Release McDonald Amid Domestic Violence Arrest

The Chicago Bears have released Ray McDonald after the defensive tackle was arrested on Monday for misdemeanor domestic violence and child endangerment charges. Santa Clara police say the 30-year-old McDonald, who has been involved in a string of domestic assault incidents, was arrested in Northern California for physically assaulting a woman "while she was holding a baby." McDonald left the residence before police arrived but was later located and arrested in San Jose. Chicago General Manager Ryan Pace said the team's management believes in second chances, but when they signed Ray they were very clear what their expectations were if he was to remain on the team.
