It has been an offseason to forget for linebacker Rolando McClain – an offseason that could resonate for the rest of his life, as he’s on thin ice with the Ravens and the rest of the NFL.
Shortly after his season ended with the Oakland Raiders, McClain was pulled over by police for illegal window tint. McClain was upset and signed his citation, “(Expletive) Y’all,” and said that was his real name. For McClain’s smart aleck actions, he was arrested for providing false information to police.
Our friend Jeff Zrebiec at the Baltimore Sun reported that McClain plead guilty to his illegal window tint violation. For McClain admitting his guilt, the police so nicely dropped the false information charge that was also pending against him.
After pleading guilty, McClain has paid the reported $186 to cover the costs of the arrest but he’ll remain a popular face in the Decatur, Al. courthouse. He’ll be appearing for his latest arrest stemming from a disturbance in a park, where he was booked for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
The Ravens were able to tolerate McClain’s immature actions surrounding the window tint incident – the straw that broke the camel’s back in Oakland – but his latest arrest may cost McClain far more than $186, as the Ravens won’t even have to pay him that if they decide to release him. Another release would likely end his career in the NFL.
