SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Police say Chicago Bears defensive end Ray McDonald assaulted a woman who was holding a baby and was arrested for domestic violence in Northern California.

Santa Clara police Lt. Kurt Clarke reports that McDonald was arrested at 7 a.m. Monday on suspicion of domestic violence and child endangerment.

It was not immediately known if the woman or the baby were injured.

The Bears announced his release on Twitter.

His agent Tom Condon also did not return calls for comment.

In December, the 49ers released McDonald.

Chicago signed McDonald to a one-year contract in March. Late last year, prosecutors announced they had declined to file charges against McDonald in a separate domestic violence probe linked to an August arrest during a party at his Northern California home. A different woman has also accused McDonald of rape.
