McClain released on bail

Decatur (Ala.) Police Dept. Lt. John Crouch said via phone that Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain has been released on bail, which was set at $2,000 as a result of his being arrested and charged with four misdemeanors.
Raiders senior executive John Herrera said the team doesn’t have any further comment on the matter. This came about two hours after Raiders coach Hue Jackson said, “We feel very comfortable with our information” and that he expects McClain to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Jackson spoke before McClain was arrested and charged with the four crimes related to an incident at a Decatur residence Wednesday night.
McClain was in his native Alabama to attend his grandfather’s funeral, Jackson said.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    are you implying that RO went looking for this ?
    ==============================================
    No. I doubt he ‘went looking’ for this.

    But the fact remains, he put himself in position to find this.

    There can be no acceptable explanation or excuse for Rolando to be involved in this type of incident.

    As I said earlier, if he was excused from team activities to attend a funeral, that explains him being in Alabama. It wouldn’t explain or excuse him for hanging with ‘friends’ at night where fights are occurring or carrying a firearm.

    You simply don’t put yourself in that position when your priority should be rehabbing your injured ankle, preparing for Miami, and mourning the death of your Grandfather.

    Forget about ‘looking’ for trouble. Hell, sometimes you can’t avoid finding trouble – even when you do your best to do so. But in this case, Rolando clearly wasn’t trying to avoid trouble. Rather, he put himself in prime position to find it.

    Rolando’s first obligation should have been to attend the funeral and spend the rest of his time prepping for the Dolphins. He has an obligation to the team, and the fans of the team, that is paying him millions – to be a productive, professional MLB. Not some gun toting jerk putting himself in a position that endangers his own well being and the Raider organization.

    If I was excused from my job to attend a funeral and wound up getting arrested under these circumstances, I’d expect to be fired. I’d deserve to be fired.

    Ro must go.

    Hopefully, and I say this loosely, hopefully RoMac becomes a beast because of this on the field…can channeling your anger on the field be coached? Anyways…like some was discussing with me earlier…if this becomes a distraction…I hope it won’t, and HueJack has done a pretty decent job in keeping the team from getting caught up in things…but I still want to know what Rolando told HueJack in that phone call???

    Love that winning smile on Rolando as he’s being cuffed. Let’s see if he’s still laughing in prison.

  • hwnrdr

    Raiderman99…I get what you’re saying and I agree…he is now a professional. Must learn to step away from stupidity…however, can you imagine if the Ravens let Ray Lewis go? Not saying its right nor am I saying what the Raiders should do, but right now, until proven guilty, its all accusations right now! I do believe that HueJack should punish him, someway, some how…but at this point in the season, not let him go! I have said that at first, but that will be a bigger distraction if the Raiders did that…

    Rolano may be so high on crack he doesn’t even realize how serious this is.

    There is nothing that says that more charges cannot be filed later.

  • Gerard

    I realize the charges are all misdemeanors but depending on the circumstances they could be upgraded to felonies which could reslut in prison time.

    Regardless, I don’t think he should be acting so smug and non-chalant about all this. It doesn’t help his cause.

    I must say I find it hard to believe that McClain was let out of jail for $2,000 IF Papshmear, I mean Papscott is to be believed.

  • aig-raiders

    He is seeking legal action again Roland McClain and his friend.
    —————–
    Of course he is. Payday coming baby.

  • autopalm77

    I would say Mr. Woffard has some inaccurate information…Mr. Willingham physically assaulted the victim and caused the injuries that he has sustained…McClain is charged with physical assault with a weapon, menacing, discharging a weapon within city limits and didn’t take part in the fight with the victim…I see no mention of a ruptured ear drum if in fact a firearm was discharged at or near his head, I am certain he would have one…All of those injuries are related to Mr. Willinghams assault…..McClain may have had a hand in luring the victim to get into am altercation, however that is not a crime…

  • hwnrdr

    Just to be clear, I am not supporting McClain’s actions, but we have all seen this before…I’ll pass judgement until later when the truth all comes out…
    For all we know, it could be tied to the shooting incident in January…could be a ploy to ruin McClain, or blah blah blah…
    If The Raider organization cuts him loose, and he gets acquitted of all charges…how would that look? Doesn’t the org stands by its players?
    Now about him not doing it on the field and his unpleasantries with us fans…that’s another story…

    It seems bizarre to me that the “victim” is referring to RoMac as his friend. Am I nuts?

    The victim of the assault was 23-year old Rishard Papscott, who says he has been friends with McClain and his accomplice, Jarodiuas Willingham, since before middle school, as the three grew up playing football and basketball together in Decatur.

    In a phone interview with Alabama news organization WAFF, Papscott said he was playing video games with friends when another friend invited him over. When he showed up, McClain and Willingham were waiting for him.

    “I went over there, it was basically like an ambush, like they set me up to fight because as soon as I got there.. he wasn’t there, the gentleman I ended up getting to fighting with the first time. Then they all went outside and I was sitting in the house, and 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 and I was like I ain’t fighting, I ain’t coming outside.. and that’s when he came in the house and assaulted me…”

    Decatur Police say Papscott got into a fight with Jarodiuas Willingham at a house on Skyview Street around 10:20 p.m. Wednesday. According to the reports, Papscott crawled to his car, bleeding from the nose and mouth. McClain followed him to the car, where he brandished a pistol at Papscott’s head.

    When Papscott begged McClain not to shoot, the Raiders linebacker took the gun away from his head and fired a shot.

    Papscott says he has a mild concussion, a broken nose and some broken ribs. He says he is also having some trouble talking out of the right side of his mouth.

    He says he will seek legal action.

  • autopalm77

    McClain may have witnesses to exculpate him from wrongdoing in this matter…It is obvious an altercation took place, how this will play out is not something that will be known in the immediate future….I am not real familiar with Alabama criminal statutes, however, I believe they have one year to adjudicate this matter…That can be extended with a waiver of right for a speedy trial…
