Raiders' McClain arrested in Alabama

The SportsXchange

Oakland Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain was arrested again in Alabama on Tuesday.

Decatur, Ala., police reported that McClain was stopped in his vehicle for a window tint violation. According to the police, McClain gave the arresting officer a false name, leading to a misdemeanor charge.

McClain was released after posting bail later in the day.

He told the Decatur Daily News, "I'm falsely accused of everything. It's corrupt. It's terrible."

Last year, McClain was convicted of assault stemming from a Nov. 30, 2011, incident in Decatur while he was away from the team to attend his grandfather's funeral.

McClain played at Decatur High School before an All-America career at the University of Alabama. He was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2010 draft.

With the Raiders last season, he served a two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. He was reinstated Dec. 10, but he didn't get back on the field in 2012. In 11 games (nine starts) last season, he was credited with 60 tackles, including one sack. He had five sacks in 2011, when he played 15 games, and a half-sack and one interception over 15 games as a rookie in 2010.

Due $4 million in salary next season with a cap number of $6,675,000, McClain might not return to the Raiders in 2013.
