Former Oakland Raiders LB Rolando McClain Arrested Again

Rolando McClain is back at it again, folks.

The former Raiders linebacker was arrested for the third time in two years in his hometown of Decatur, Alabama.

Police tell WHNT, the local news station, that McClain was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after an incident at Pines Park.

According to eyewitnesses, McClain and a group of people were ordered by police to leave the park, but he refused to do so and started cursing at the officers. That’s when he was taken into custody and released on bond a short time later.

In January of this year, McClain was arrested for a window-tint violation and providing a false name to police.

If that wasn’t enough, in November of 2011, he was sentenced to 180 days in jail after firing a gun next to a man’s head. The case was later dropped after being thrown out by a judge.

Again, all these incidents occurred in his hometown of Decatur.

At the time of his second arrest earlier this year, McClain spoke out.

“I’m falsely accused of everything,” he told the Decatur Daily. “It’s corrupt. It’s terrible.”

When asked if he believed that the police were out to get him, he simply said,  “Yes. You said it. I answered it.”

The eighth pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, McClain was once touted as the future centerpiece of the Raiders’ defense. To say the least, he has failed to reach up to those expectations. His career stats are rather unimpressive: 173 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and one interception in three full seasons.

After being waived by the Raiders this offseason, McClain signed a one-year deal worth $700,000 with the Baltimore Ravens.
