San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said that the team is investigating a report that linebacker Aldon Smith was drinking at former teammate Ray McDonald's home on Dec. 15 with McDonald and a woman who alleges she was sexually assaulted the day before by McDonald.
"We're certainly going to look into it," Baalke told "The Damon Bruce Show" on 95.7 The Game on Monday. "In this situation, I think, there are different situations, and we treat each situation differently, but yet we're certainly going to look into it."
McDonald hasn't been charged with a crime in relation to the alleged sexual assault, but was released last Wednesday by the 49ers, who cited a pattern of behavior and off-field issues.
"There's a report out there, an alleged report out there, and I have not gotten all the facts, have not seen the report, and as I soon as I do, we'll make a decision on what direction we're going to go," he said, regarding any potential disciple of Smith.
Smith served a nine-game suspension at the start of the season for numerous violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy, including a DUI in 2013 and making false bomb threats at an airport.
