San Francisco 49ers defensive end, Ray McDonald is defending himself after his arrest on domestic violence charges.
He calls the incident a "crazy situation" and said the "truth will come out." The defensive lineman was arrested early Sunday after his fiance showed police bruising on her neck and arms.
49ers lead the NFL in arrests, McDonald's arrest is the tenth.
San Jose Mercury News Columnist, Mark Purdy points out the arrest follows by days the strict new NFL policies regarding domestic violence arrests, in response to negative public reaction to a two game suspension given to the Raven's Ray Rice.
"Now to have this happen just a few days after that I'm sure is not pleasing to the 49ers and is just bad news all around," Purdy said.
Players will now be subject to a six-game suspension without pay for a first offense and a ban of at least one-year for a second offense.
McDonald was released from jail on 25-thousand-dollars bail and is due in court September 15th.
