Charges dropped against Raiders' McClain

The SportsXchange

Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain will not face jail time but could face NFL discipline after misdemeanor assault and firearms charges against him were dropped, reported Sunday.

McClain's attorney, Harvey Steinberg, said an Alabama judge dismissed all charges against the former first-round draft pick.

McClain was arrested last year for allegedly holding a gun near a man's head and firing it into the air.

McClain was sentenced to 180 days in jail in May but the verdict was appealed. The charges were dropped on the appeal after the man who made the accusations decided not to go forward with the case.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league will review the situation under the personal conduct policy, even though McClain was exonerated, according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.

The league could still discipline McClain, who is third on the Raiders in tackles.
