Former Raiders & Cowboys LB Rolando McClain Arrested On Marijuana & Weapons Charge

According to the Decatur Daily, former Raiders and Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was arrested Friday on equipment violations, firearm and drug charges.

Police stopped a vehicle for a window tint violation in Hartselle, Ala and smelled the aroma of marijuana coming from the vehicle. After conducting a search of the vehicle, officers found marijuana and a firearm without a permit.

McClain was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, carrying a firearm without a permit and a misdemeanor equipment violation and is currently being held on $2,000 bail.

McClain, 27, 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 March of last year. He was placed on the reserve/did-not-report list in July.

McClain was later suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

In 2015, McClain recorded 80 tackles, two sacks, an interception returned for a touchdown, and three pass defense.
