San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald was recently arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse, which allegedly involved him beating his pregnant fiancé.
Since the NFL has begun to crack down on domestic violence, McDonald is expected to be in trouble soon. The leaked TMZ video of Ray Rice caused the league to suspend him indefinitely while the Baltimore Ravens released him, so similar consequences may be brewing in the foreseeable future.
However, the 49ers have said they are committed to due process. Since no official charges have been filed, the 49ers are continuing to play McDonald.
The alleged abuser has maintained that he is innocent, and his hearing has been postponed. However, the investigation will continue as the police look for the facts in this case.
Despite the 49ers’ due process philosophy, head coach Jim Harbaugh said that the team has zero tolerance for domestic violence.
Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is currently in a similar situation after allegedly beating his girlfriend.
