CSN Bay Area:
Sources told NBC Bay Area reporter Damian Trujillo that McDonald’s alleged victim is pregnant.
The incident occurred on Bentley Ridge Drive in San Jose — the same street on which 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was involved in a single-vehicle accident in September and was ultimately arrested for DUI.
Multiple 49ers players were present when the incident resulting in McDonald arrest occurred Sunday morning, according to reports.
