San Jose police today released a report about an incident in May at the home of San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald in which a female became upset and grabbed a gun during an argument. The incident report, which did not name McDonald or his fiancé, came months before the 49ers’ player was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence at his San Jose home on Aug. 31.
The report stated that at 8:09 p.m. on May 25 at 2516 Bentley Ridge Drive — listed in property records as owned by McDonald — a male and female “engaged couple” were having an argument “when the female subject became upset, grabbed a firearm (handgun) registered to the male subject and held it at her side.” “When the male subject informed the female subject that he was going to call 911, the female subject put the firearm away and fled without incident,” police stated in the report. “The female subject did not make any threats or point the firearm at the male subject,” the report stated. ”
Both subjects have been identified and contacted.” Police did not make any arrests and said the gun was registered to the male subject involved. On Aug. 31, San Jose police arrested McDonald, 29, and booked him into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of domestic violence with his pregnant fiancé during a party at his home. According to police, officers responded to reports of violence in the 2500 block of Bentley Ridge Drive around 2:45 a.m. McDonald was released from jail later the same day. The district attorney’s office has yet to file charges against him, citing an incomplete investigation. The 49ers have permitted McDonald to continue to play pending the outcome of the investigation.
