Prosecutors in California have charged former San Francisco 49er defensive tackle Ray McDonald with domestic violence and false imprisonment following allegations he assaulted his ex-fiancee while she held their 2-month-old child.

The Santa Clara County district attorney's office announced the charges Thursday. McDonald also is charged with child endangerment and violating a court order that he stay away from the victim. He is scheduled to be arraigned in the afternoon.

A call to McDonald's attorney, Steve Defilippis, wasn't immediately returned.

Prosecutors say McDonald broke into the woman's bedroom around 4 a.m. on May 25 and assaulted her while his driver tried to stop him and she tried to get away. They say he eventually left the scene.
