Rolando McClain was arrested (USA Today Sports Images)
According to the report, McClain was arrested in his hometown of Decatur on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest following an incident at Pines Park. McClain was part of a large crowd that had been asked to disperse. McClain allegedly refused to do so and began cursing at the officers.
McClain has been released from jail after posting bond.
McClain, 23, has had multiple run-ins with the law in Alabama. In January 2011, McClain was arrested after allegedly pointing a gun at another man and firing it next to his head. McClain was convicted and sentenced to 180 days in jail, but upon appeal, the charges were dropped when the victim would not cooperate with the criminal case against McClain. In January 2013, McClain was again arrested in Decatur after giving a false name to police during a traffic stop.
Those off-field issues, as well as an argument with head coach Dennis Allen that resulted in a two-game suspension during the 2012 season, led to the Oakland Raiders to place the eighth overall pick of the 2010 NFL draft on waivers on April 5. McClain cleared waivers and signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Ravens that included no guaranteed money, but an opportunity to earn an additional $400,000 in playing-time incentives.
McClain signed his contract with the Ravens on April 12 after an important, in-person meeting with general manager Ozzie Newsome in Baltimore. As thin as the Ravens are at the inside linebacker position, McClain's latest arrest not only jeopardizes his availability for the team's offseason workout program, which began on April 15, but it may also jeopardize his spot on the roster.
