MLB McClain arrested and charged

Raiders starting middle linebacker Rolando McClain has been arrested for his involvment at a fight in which a gun was discharged at a residence in Decatur, Ala., on Wednesday night, according to the Decatur Police Department.
The police report says McClain was arrested for discharging a firearm within city limits, third degree assault, menacing, and reckless endangerment. All four charges are misdemeanors under Alabama law.
Decatur Police Department Lt. John Crouch told Bay Area News Group earlier today that McClain had not been arrested as of that time. He declined to comment on whether McClain might be arrested and charged with any crimes. He later sent an e-mail that included a statement about the arrest, citing parts of the police report, and two mug shots of McClain.
Lt. Crouch said McClain is in custody. He is being held on a $2,000 bond.
The statement says the victim, unnamed, told police that he suffered nose and mouth injuries and crawled to his car.
At that point, McClain “produced a pistol and aimed it at him. He said that while he was still on the ground, McClain walked over to him and put the gun to his head. The victim reported that he begged McClain not to shoot him and that McClain took the gun away from his head, held it next to his ear and fired it.”
McClain, according to Lt. Crouch, was at the home of an acquaintance Wednesday night, when a call to the police reported the fight and shots fired.
Raiders coach Hue Jackson said McClain was excused from practice Wednesday so that he could return to his native state to attend the funeral of his grandfather. Jackson spoke before McClain was arrested.
Jackson added that he is has been in contact with McClain and is confident things will be resolved in a favorable manner.
“I can tell you we understand and know exactly what’s going on, and we feel very comfortable with our information and we don’t have any further comment at this time,” Jackson said.
The victim refused treatment at the scene and, instead, drove himself to a hospital, where he was treated and released.
Raiders spokesman Mike Taylor said, “We are aware of the incident. At this time, we have no further comment.”
Raiders senior executive John Herrera said after the arrest that the team will not comment further.

    Kudo’s for McClain kicking that dudes azz.

    He is 3 years older, and was listed as a 6′7 245 pounds PF at Polk Community College.

    At least he won the fight. I think I would be more mad if the report was:

    McClain injured in street fight after getting his azz kicked.

    ******************

    immature cuz, you realize the team you cheer for and log-into this blog for is going to be royally F’d cuz he did all this, right? and you worry about his outcome status of a fight with a community college hometown scrub against a MLB in the NFL?

    Rolando McClain belongs in jail for stealing from the Raiders this year. Hasn’t pissed a drop for what he is being paid.

    Did he really say that? Funny stuff…and true.

  • UCSBPreMedMike

    sounds like a set-up. somebody trying to get money. i hope.
    $2000 bond? can’t be that bad!

    I got $5 on it so he can get back against GB.

  • al d. davis

    Fire him…..most of what I see of McClaim are missed arm tackles, cartwheeling through the air, ass over tea kettle, ball carrier just beyond his grasp and assorted other bone head mistakes. Whenever the opponent gains several hundred ground yards, McClain is at least half responsible for it. And he is the defensive captain ?? This incident shows McClain’s intelligence is too low to ever achieve greatness.

    I always loved Bill trashing Rolando. When all the McClain pros in here backed him.

    While I questioned his tone with media (if ever) and his ego that he is from the SEC and the NFL isn’t any different? loser. cut him now.

    You have to love Romo.

  • Raiders2002

    Looks like we just fixed our MLB problem, how are we ever going to replace his 2 tackles per game?? Dump his a$$ tomorrow and move on with Blackstock. McClain has done nothing in two years, hes the weakness of our defense……send him back to Alabama with JRoc, they can hang out at the barber shop together

    Raiders ought to be kicked out of the NFL!!!!!

  • ArtilleryShell

    I hope he gets the big financial hit, like 100k plus miss a game like the Packers how can he lead the team and do this although it took ray Lewis a big scare before he left the Miami thug scene alone. McClain does not seem to attempt to fight off blocks I don’t mind black stock in there

  • RaiderReggie

    What’s up with the players we draft from the state of Alabama i.e., Rolando McClain and JaMarcus Russell.

  • ArtilleryShell

    We need to get healthy beat Miami easily then play the Packers like f$&$ them we ain’t scared and as long as green bay walks away knowing we hit them harder than they hit us then we won

  • ArtilleryShell

    Yeah he shoulda beat up Jamarcus

  • ArtilleryShell

    Plus we don’t have to worry about drafting anyone next year

  • al d. davis

    The big nig.a is sooooo tough with a semi auto in his hand. But how about when whitey Tebow blew through him several times for almost 75 yards like a cannon ball through butter? Dump him now; fire him. First however, slap him across the face with an ax handle; second, tar and feather him; and third, on the way out of town snip his eggs – if he has any….

  • al d. davis

    and by the way, I doubt, considering the trouble Jano has been in of late, that Jano is much smarter than Rolando McDork; it’s just that Jano performs in an exemplary manner.
