Footage was released of the scary 2015 standoff between former NFL player Ray McDonald and the mother of his child, who was taping the incident.  The video was at the center of his domestic violence case.

The footage shows the former 49er DT cornering the woman in a dining room around 4 a.m. on May 25, while she was holding their 2-month-old child.  You can see McDonald’s driver trying to calm down McDonald while the woman is pleading with him to go away.

After a tense four minutes, the driver says to Ray, “Let’s go. She will get ready and she’s being picked up. Please, Ray.”

That’s when a chase begins and the woman locks herself in a bathroom while screaming.

Cops were called to the scene and prosecutors later charged McDonald with domestic violence and felony false imprisonment.  After seeing the video, however, a grand jury declined to indict and the charges were dropped.

TMZ Sports spoke with the woman’s attorney, Robin Yeamans, who tells us, “It’s one of the most horrific videos I’ve seen and heard in my 46 years of practicing law.”

Yeamans says her client is now working with teams on Change.org and YouCaring.com to push the NFL to start a Domestic Violence Victim’s Fund to “to ensure that the victims and children of abusive players receive medical, counseling, and legal support paid by the league.”
