In November, the Santa Clara District Attorney's office declined to press charges due to insufficient evidence.

Now, McDonald is being investigated for possible sexual assault, and the 49ers aren't waiting for an arrest. They have cut ties with McDonald, with general manager Trent Baalke Baalke citing a "pattern of behavior" in the decision.
