SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Police Department has informed its officers they are no longer allowed to do off-duty work for the San Francisco 49ers.

The order Friday came hours after the San Jose Mercury News reported a sergeant with the San Jose Police Department allegedly was at Ray McDonald's house the day he was arrested for domestic violence.

The officer is one of 16 from the department who moonlight with the 49ers as part of the team's security.

San Jose Police Chief Larry Esquivel says in a message to personnel that it is in the department's "best interest to suspend all San Francisco 49er secondary employment related assignments until further notice."

Esquivel says the decision was made "due to the complexities of the investigation."

McDonald is out on $25,000 bail following his Aug. 31 arrest.
