Ray McDonald released from jail, says 'truth will come out'

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Sunday's big news centered around 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald, who was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence at 5:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The San Francisco lineman was finally released on Sunday afternoon and, according Azenith Smith of KTLU.com, is claiming the story being portrayed isn't accurate.

Specifically: McDonald was imprisoned for "inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant," and according to reports, the woman in question, his wife, was pregnant. It's not a good look and, pretty clearly, a "crazy situation."

And apparently McDonald was having a birthday party that ended up going late, only adding to the crazy nature of the incident.

The NFL's method -- both in terms of speed and level of discipline -- will be interesting to watch.
