MLB McClain has not been charged in gun-related incident


Just spoke with Lt. John Crouch of the Decatur (Ala.) Police Department about the incident Wednesday night in which Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain was present at a home where a fight broke out and shots were fired.
Lt. Crouch said of McClain, “He has not been charged at this time.”
Lt. Crouch added that an update is forthcoming this afternoon. He declined to comment on whether there’s a possibility that McClain might be charged.
Raiders coach Hue Jackson is scheduled to speak with the media in a few minutes. Raiders spokesman Mike Taylor said earlier today that the Raiders are aware of the incident, but they aren’t commenting any further for the time being.

    McClain should be cut for his on the field performance….dude looks lost half the time and when he finally is around a play, the second the player is one foot in front of him he deploys the chutes and starts gliding to a stop.

    Lazy POS.

    Fk him, he disrespects the game, the fans and his teammates by his laziness on the field.

  • McClain has been charged with third degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm inside the city limits. His bond was set at $2,000.

    He put a gun to the victoms head, the guy pleaded for his life, and he removed the gun from his head and discharged it!

    Another stupid draft pick by Al Davis. And some of you think we are losing something by giving up 2 picks for Carson Palmer. In the Raiders case, we got Carson Palmer for nothing!

  • VanHeathen

    WTF is this kid thinking?
    putting a gun to some dudes head over a fist fight,
    what a MORON, this guy needs to go…
    Of course he won’t,
    ‘innocent until proven guilty’, will probably keep him from being suspended until next season, but what a freakin’ chump!

    Decatur Police say the victim got into a fight with Jarodiuas Willingham at a house on Skyview Street SW around 10:20 p.m. Wednesday. Police responded to the scene for a shots fired call.

    When officers arrived at the scene, the victim was bleeding from the nose and mouth. The victim told officers that after the fight, he crawled to his car and McClain followed him.

    He said that when he reached his car, McClain pulled out a pistol and held it to his head.

    The victim told officers 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. Even though the initial report was for shots fired, investigators believe this was the only gunshot fired.

    Decatur Police said for most misdemeanor offenses, officers can only make an arrest if the offense happened in their presence. For this reason, officers did not charge McClain or Willingham at the scene. The responding officers filed a report and told the victim they would follow up on Thursday morning.

    Investigators met with the victim Thursday morning and obtained personal warrants for McClain and Willingham.

    McClain has been charged with third degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm inside the city limits. His bond was set at $2,000.

    Willingham has been charged with one count of assault in the third degree. He was released on a $500 bond.

    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.

    The Oakland Raiders released the following statement: “We are aware of the incident. At this time, we have no further comment.”

    Head coach Hue Jackson told reporters that McClain was in his hometown of Decatur for his grandfather’s funeral.

    Bros I always pack a little heat whenever I bust phat tracks in the studio.

    You never know when a shorty will come back with a small instead of large curly fries from Arby’s.

    Plus when you represent in the rap/high living game, there’s always a target on your back.

    Kind of like the Big Wave burger from Islands I’m about to pound after I smoke this spliff.
