Ray McDonald Arrested On Outstanding Warrant Late Tuesday Night, Released Wednesday Morning

Fooch's Update 10:27am: Cam Inman sent a subsequent tweet out with the same link, but he included a note "failure to prove he completed 1st-offender program." We're waiting for more details, but that could mean he either did not complete the program or simply failed to file necessary paperwork regarding the program. More to come..

The 49ers offseason got a lit bit more tumultuous Wednesday as defensive end Ray McDonald was arrested in Sunnyvale for an outstanding warrant that stemmed from his 2010 arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence. McDonald was apparently pulled over around 2am for a traffic violation and it sounds like upon running his tags the cops discovered this outstanding warrant.

McDonald was initially arrested in San Mateo County on June 12, 2010 for suspicion of driving under the influence. The news sort of frittered out and there hadn't been a clear resolution of the case. Now we know why. An arrest is never a good thing, but this is likely not as simple as Aldon Smith's arrest a couple weeks back. There will be more on this developing situation so we'll keep an eye out for the details. Hopefully there is some kind of reasonable explanation for all this given that we are now over a year and a half removed from the initial arrest.
