Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain was arrested for the second time in 13 months on Tuesday for a window tint violation and for giving false information to a police officer, according to the Decatur (Ala.) Daily. He promptly made bail, and the newspaper caught up to him as he was getting into his white Chevy Silverado to leave the City Hall parking lot.
“I’m falsely accused of everything,” McClain said. “It’s corrupt. It’s terrible.”
The reporter asked him if the police were targeting him.
“Yes. You said it. I answered it,” McClain said.
Last year, McClain was convicted of reckless endangerment, third-degree assault, and menacing and discharging a firearm from a December 2011 incident and sentenced to 180 days in jail, but all of his charges were dropped after he appealed the sentence.
You have to wonder how this latest arrest will play in Oakland, because he’s also not been getting along with his team. He was suspended for two games late in the season for conduct detrimental to the team. When he was allowed back, he had lost his starting job.
"I laid out exactly what the expectations are for him moving forward,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said upon McClain’s return to the team. “Really, that's about it. We're moving on from there. Rolando's part of this team, and we're going to move on."
