Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain is facing new charges in his hometown of Decatur, Alabama.
According to police reports, McClain, who recently signed a one-year contract worth $700,000 with the Ravens, was arrested Sunday and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after a disturbance at a park.
WHNT 19 News cites multiple witnesses who said the athlete and a crowd of people were told to leave the park and that McClain refused and started to curse at officers. McClain, 23, was eventually handcuffed and taken to the city jail.
He posted $1,000 bond and was released a short time later.
“We are seeking more facts on this,” said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens senior vice president for public and community relations. “The only information we have at this time is from news reports.”
McClain’s arrest on Sunday was his second this year.
In January, the Raiders linebacker was detained by police after he reportedly signed a traffic citation with the name “F**k Y’All.” According to police reports at the time, McClain was given the ticket in Alabama for having tinted windows.
After failing to properly sign his citation, police arrested the athlete and charged him with trying to provide a false identity.
The former Alabama linebacker was also arrested by Decatur police in 2011 on assault and menacing charges.
He was later convicted of four misdemeanors — reckless endangerment, menacing, third-degree assault and firing a gun in the city limits — stemming from the incident.
The assault and menacing case however was dismissed in 2012 when the alleged victim declined to go forward after reaching a financial settlement with McClain.
On the field, McClain, the eighth overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft by the Raiders, was benched for two games in 2012 for conduct detrimental to the team after he clashed with Oakland first-year head coach Dennis Allen.
In 41 career games with Oakland, Rolando had 6.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, and no fumble recoveries.
