Alabama TV station interviews alleged McClain victim


According to the Alabama TV station WAFF, the alleged victim in the case which left Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain with four misdemeanor charges is Rishard Tapscott, who told the station he was he was a longtime friend of McClain’s.

Tapscott, 23, said said he had several broken ribs, a concussion and is having trouble talking out of the right side of his mouth, the station reported.

“I went over there, it was basically like an ambush, like they set me up to fight, because as soon as I got there they all went outside and I was sitting in the house,” Tapscott said. “That’s when they came back in the house and they were like, ‘You’re going to have to fight, come back out and fight.’ I was like ‘I ain’t fighting, I ain’t coming outside,’ and that’s when he came in the house and assaulted me,” said Papscott.

“[Wednesday] night, before all the charges were pressed, I didn’t want him [McClain] to get in trouble because I look at him like a brother, as a friend. I never thought it would come to this. What goes around comes around.”

    “Wimbley belives LBs will lead Raiders to play offs”

    “Well Rolando is the quarterback of the defense, I believe he is the heart and soul,” Wimbley said of McClain. “He understands this defense inside and out and we rely on him during the games to lead us, and he’s done a great job of doing that so far this season.”

    I think JAMARCUS RUSSELL bailed him out…

    Hope everything works out for RoMac. He’s a Raider and we should treat him as such. I hope you all don’t throw your own family under the bus so quick when stuff hits the fan.
