Former Dallas Cowboys Linebacker Arrested On Disturbing Charges
Rolando McClain was reportedly arrested over the weekend.
The former Alabama football player and NFL linebacker was arrested on drug and weapons charges.
“According to the Moulton Police Department, Rolando McClain was pulled over on Highway 157 for speeding. When an officer approached the car, police say the officer could smell marijuana coming from McClain’s vehicle. Police say that gave them probable cause to search the car.
When McClain was asked to step out of the vehicle, he told police there was gun was in the car. According to McClain, the gun did not belong to him. Police say McClain did not have a license to carry a concealed weapon with him,” the report states. He was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, speeding, and possession of a concealed weapon without a permit.
McClain is a former first-round pick of the Raiders back in 2010. He spent three years in Oakland before taking a year off and later signing with the Ravens.
Baltimore traded McClain to the Cowboys in 2014, and Dallas elected to bring him back on a one-year, $5 million contract back in 2016. He was later placed on the reserve/did-not-report list and was suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
