A shocking video has emerged showing former NFL player Ray McDonald threatening his ex-fianceé and their infant son.

The incident, which was filmed by Kendra Scott on May 25, 2015, led to the arrest of the former Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman. He was hit with domestic violence charges over the incident, however they were later dropped. 

In the video, Scott is seen standing behind a table, her exit blocked by McDonald.

She is heard repeatedly asking him 'What are you doing? I was sleeping with (child's name) and you come in here and act like this. This is crazy.'

The footage then shows what Kendra says McDonald lunging at her, as she runs down the hallway screaming 'stop.'

The video was first published by TMZ Sports.  

The 31-year-old University of Florida grad 'physically assaulted the victim while she was holding a baby', according to police in Santa Clara, California.

'The video is just part of the night and it does not record the whole thing,' she said. 'It shuts off at a point, but there were a lot of physical abuse, emotional and verbal.'

Scott also released images of her battered face and body she says were from a domestic abuse incident in May 2015, with her former fiancee.

McDonald was accused of breaking down a bedroom door and assaulting his ex-fiancee as she held their two-month-old child, the district attorney's office said. 

Despite the video footage and alleged photographs, a grand jury failed to indict McDonald on the felony false imprisonment and other domestic violence charges in August 2015. 

The grand jury instead indicted McDonald for violating a court restraining order to stay away from the woman.

McDonald, who was released by the 49ers in December 2014 after he was named as a possible suspect in a rape case, was then signed to the Chicago Bears in March 2015 for a one-year deal.

Disgraced: The ex of football star Ray McDonald claims he repeatedly attacked her over the course of their relationship 

However, the team released him in May after the arrest involving his former fiancee.

Scott has alleged her ex's 'celebrity' stopped her from getting the justice she deserved.

'It clouds everything,' she told NBC. 'My voice wasn't heard.'

She said that she had got so much backlash from football fans after coming forward to accuse McDonald of abuse.

'I got so much negativity because he is celebrity,' she said. 'I got threats, I got hate mail.'

Scott said she was speaking out now, not only to protect herself and her baby, but to 'help other potential victims of domestic violence.'

'It's tough to speak out,' she said on Thursday morning. 

'But to victims I'd say 'speak up. Have a voice. Speak up for what's right.' I think as a group if we can come together, we're more powerful.'

Scott and McDonald are also in the midst of a child custody proceeding involving their 20-month-old child.

The 28-year-old said she first noticed flashes of bad temper, which led to 'verbal abuse and controlling behavior' before becoming 'pushing and shoving and then 'full attacks that happened frequently.'

Then, in August 2014, she claims McDonald 'choked me, dragged and tried to remove me from the house and put his knee in my stomach when I was 10 weeks pregnant.'

'I was ashamed to tell friends and family,' Scott said in her filing for a temporary restraining order last year, obtained by the San Jose Mercury News

'I hoped he would change. He changed some, but he began drinking again so I moved out.'

'It's hard to see 'red flags' when you're in love,' she said.  

Steve DeFilippis, McDonald's attorney, previously denied these claims.   

The mother of McDonald's ex told the dispatcher the NFL player was 'drunk' when she called authorities before dawn.

As for the sexual assault charges that led to his being cut by the 49ers, McDonald claims it stemmed from a consensual encounter in his hot tub, and has sued for defamation against the woman who brought it.

At the time of his release, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the player had 'a pattern of poor decision-making'.

The Bears picked him up after the team chairman met with McDonald personally and spoke to his parents.

The team's chairman had originally vetoed the idea of bringing the controversial player aboard.  

McDonald did not receive punishment from the 49ers or the NFL for any of his alleged misbehavior.
