SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Police in Northern California say San Francisco 49ers Ray McDonald has been arrested on domestic violence charges.
San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol says the 29-year-old defensive end was taken into custody early Sunday after officers responded to a home in an upscale neighborhood.
McDonald was jailed on felony domestic violence charges.
He has been playing for San Francisco since he was drafted as a third round pick in 2007.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher punishments last week for players convicted of domestic violence.
