McClain at scene of Decatur incident

Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain was at the scene of a fight Wednesday where gun shots were fired in his hometown of Decatur, Ala., the Huntsville Times reported.

McClain was not at practice Wednesday and was on the injury report as “did not participate’’ because of an injured ankle. It’s not clear why he was in Alabama and not with the team.

As the Raiders went through warm-ups and drills before practice Thursday, McClain was not on the field with the team.

“We are aware of the incident. At this time we have no further comment,’’ a Raiders spokesman said.

According to Lt. John Crouch, police received a report of gun shots at 10:20 p.m. and reported to find one person injured in a fight. The victim refused treatment.

McClain, according to Crouch, was present when the fight happened and the incident is under investigation.

Last Jan. 28, a Chevrolet Tahoe McClain was driving was shot at in Decatur. Police found a slug near the rear hatch of the vehicle.

Raiders coach Hue Jackson meets the media following Thursday’s practice.

    Kudo’s to Steve.

    He was only about 10 minutes behind the semi’s this go-round.

  • morilla

    Someone needs to drag that kid by the ear and sit him in the corner. He has a history with crap like this dating all the way back to his Bama days. He has anger issues and hangs out with worthless thugs. Keep it up buddy and you will be just like them. Nothing.

    This is ridiculous.

  • DMAC

    Steve is on top of his game ten min late!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Twice McClain has been shot at, yet nobody has been hit.

    Some real Annie Oakley’s in Decatur.

  • YoungAmerican

    Big Rich needs to sit him down for a talkin’-to.

  • DMAC

    I’m ready to go Joe Kapp on McClain…..

    and then start running, cuz I know he won’t be able to catch me on that bum azz ankle.

    For those not able to read report.

    DECATUR, AL (WAFF) – Decatur Police say former Alabama linebacker and current Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain was at the scene of a fight Wednesday night, but it’s unclear if he was involved in the incident.

    Police say they responded to a shots fired call at 10:20 p.m. Wednesday in the 1000 block of Skyview Street SW.

    When officers arrived, they found one person who had been injured in a physical altercation. The victim refused medical treatment at the scene and drove himself to Decatur General Hospital. He was treated and released from the emergency room.

    The incident is currently under investigation. McClain has not been arrested or charged in the disturbance.

    Earlier this year McClain was involved in another shooting incident in Decatur. Police say shots were fired at McClain’s vehicle. No one was injured in that incident.

    Showing 1 comment guess he’s buying into the Raider thug mentality

    I’ve never been one to judge a cat by the people he grew up with/around. Yea, you can separate yourself from that when you get older, but it is a very hard thing to do in most cases; especially when it’s family and close friends and it’s a place you’re from; and you’re still very young (23 is very young). However, in saying all of that, WTF are you in Bama for and you got a game in Oakland? Common sense shows that travel wears on the body so why make two extra cross country trips during the same week when you have to do the same thing with your team to go to Florida??!! WTF??!! High altitude only inflames sprained/sore muscles more…..why aren’t you at the crib bruh??? WTF!!! I’m getting pissed the more and more I’m thinking about it!

    WTF, did he take a private jet? I hope he does not know Javon Walker.

    JFB….That’s is cold but really some quick witted humor…..LOL

  • morilla

    What was he doing there in the FIRST PLACE ?!!!!

  • YoungAmerican

    No excuse for McClain not rehabbing with the team.

  • hwnrdr

    Well, he wasn’t charged, so that is halfly a good thing! But yes, why are you home in the first place unless it was a family emergency and if it was, 9.9 out of 10 times, the emergency is not at a club!

  • oldschoolraider

    What the hell was McClain doing in Ala anyway? We’ve got a game on Sunday! Is anyone keeping tabs on him?
    McClain needs to decide whether he wants to be a team member or a gang member.
    Hue needs to rip him a new one!!

  • autopalm77

    Big Rich is in Massachusetts…He has gotten practice week off all year….Maybe they’ll have a talk at halftime….No excused absences in a 3 month job…….

  • DMAC

    Eddie Anderson to the rescue???????

  • Just Fire Baby

    I don’t think McClain was going back and forth. I believe he went back, hopefully was excused by the team, and will stay there and meet up with the team on Friday at the hotel.

    IF he is flying to ‘Bama, than coming back to Oakland, than flying back out again, than that may be more stupid than the incident itself.

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    Cynically, the only way I can look at this on the bright side is to compare it to Ray Lewis’ experience when he was with his homies and dude got killed. Maybe this is what it will take to really awaken McClain’s inner beast in a positive way and keep him completely focused on the field while rearranging his priorities in life……I know I’m being optimistic in saying this right now as we’re learning this new news, but dammit; I’m trying to keep from not throwing sh!t at my desk at work…..

    Can they suspend someone for being a dumb a**? oh wait…JaMarcus was here for 3 years and no suspensions!

  • raiderinparadise

    LAST THING WE NEEDED IS A DISTRACTION FORM A 23 YEAR OLD MILLIONAIRE TOP 10 PICK THAT IS NOT PLAYING AT A HIGH LEVEL, AND IS OUR “LEADER” OF THE DEFENSE.

    HUE HAS TO TALK TO HIM, BEING THAT HUE WAS FROM COMPTON AND AVOIDED GANGS/TROUBLE HIS WHOLE LIFE WITH A FOCUS ON SPORTS AND CHURCH.

    I JUST THINK HUE IS A PUSHOVER AS MCCLAIN A FEW TIMES HASN’T PRACTICE FOR “FAMILY” AND OTHER STUFF, WHEN HE IS REALLY TRYING TO LOOK COOL WITH HIS MILLIONS AROUND HOME-TOWN THUGS. VERY RUSSELL-ESQUE.

    SEYMOUR WILL SCRE THIS KID STRAIGHT IF HE DECIDES TOO, THATS WHY HE IS HERE AND HE WILL HAVE WORDS WITH HIM.

    Honestly, IF dude wasn’t excused by the team to leave; you should be suspended for being on the other side of the country the same day the game plan gets implemented for this week’s game…straight up…. but if he was excused, no suspension should be necessary; just a good lecture and a smack to the back of the head until his neck curls up in rolls like Hue’s…Lol

    Google mapped 1000 skyview street in Decatur.

    Don’t think it is the super-hood. Mall is right around the corner, with a CVS and cycle bike shop on that corner.

    We know gangsters don’t go to homo-Euro bike shops.

    Come on ya’ll…neighborhoods ain’t got nothing to do with it….yea, a high risk area is more likely to have ish pop…but if you’re wildin’ out, it can take place anywhere…I don’t care if he was in the Hamptons in Long Island. The bigger issue even there was no shooting is it’s Wednesday, you’re not even 100% healthy, and you’re across the country on the day the game plan is being prepared…..

    Good God man, why would you want to go back to Alabama regardless. I don’t care if you have family there. By them some plane tickets and hang out in S.F. Instead you go to Bama?

    —————

    Takes plays off? Not sure I know what you mean here. He hasn’t had the impact you would expect of a #8 overall pick, but he’s played through his injuries. Defense simply plays better with him on the field, for whatever reason.

    Still doesn’t excuse him being in Alabama.
