Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker Rolando McClain had a false identity charge dropped and entered a guilty plea to violating state regulations on window tinting.
McClain, 23, has a court date July 9 to answer charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after an incident in April at a local park.
McClain did not appear in court Tuesday. He paid a fine of $186, which also covers court costs, stemming from the January window-tint matter after which he signed a citation with an expletive rather than his own name. That led to an additional charge of presenting authorities with false identity.
McClain was a first-round pick out of Alabama but he was released by the Oakland Raiders after failing to establish himself with the franchise and finding off-field trouble, including an arrest on gun charges and a heated exchange last season with coach Dennis Allen.
He signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Ravens last month.
