49ers player Ray McDonald arrested for domestic violence

Domestic violence within New Jersey families can cause a difficult situation for the victim as one makes the decision to involve authorities and expose the abuser. A person who feels that he or she has been inapproperiately harmed by a loved one may question his or her safety and ability to make the offensive abuse end. Recently, Ray McDonald from the 49ers was accused of perpetrating domestic violence.

Police arrived at a home located in a wealthy neighborhood where they detained and arrested Ray McDonald. The football player was taken into custody for his involvement in a situation that may have been abusive. Relationship violence can occur within the affluent or poor population, and it does not have class boundaries.

Authorities have charged Ray McDonald for felony domestic violence, though he was released on bail. What may have caused or led up to the domestic disturbance situation has been kept confidential by the involved parties. The accused man has publicly denounced having a poor character and stated that what he believes to be the truth will be revealed in time.

The National Football League has recently made the decision to provide penalties with impact to players who may be involved or guilty of perpetrating domestic violence. Records show that officials for the 49ers are aware of the charges made against their player and will make a decision regarding his status when the investigation reveals additional information. A New Jersey victim who fears that his or her partner will not be held accountable for his or her actions may seek professional help in ensuring the violence ends and that they are protected.
