The California Highway Patrol has released audio from the 911 call that led to the arrest of ex-San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald on suspicion of child endangerment and domestic violence.
The mother of the alleged victim told reporters on Tuesday McDonald was drunk when she called authorities before dawn Monday.
McDonald was later arrested at a San Jose home on suspicion of assaulting a woman who was holding the couple's baby.
The caller says she wasn't at the home but that her daughter told her to call police, according to the audio.
Later in the day the Chicago Bears, who signed McDonald only a couple of months ago, released him.
The arrest follows a pattern of similar incidents.
McDonald's agent Tom Condon has not returned multiple calls seeking comment.
