The California Highway Patrol has released audio from the 911 call that led to the arrest of NFL defensive end Ray McDonald on suspicion of child endangerment and domestic violence.
KRON-TV reports Tuesday that a woman, mother of the alleged victim, says 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 released McDonald.
The arrest follows a pattern of similar incidents.
McDonald's agent Tom Condon has not returned multiple calls seeking comment.
McDonald is a former San Francisco 49er.
