01:25 PM ET 04.22 | The Baltimore Ravens are still seeking more facts surrounding the arrest of newly signed linebacker Rolando McClain. McClain was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest following an incident in his hometown of Decatur, Ala. This is the third time the former first round pick has been arrested in Decatur since 2011. He and several other people allegedly refused police orders to leave Pines Park, and began cursing at the officers before eventually being arrested. The Ravens signed the Alabama product earlier this April, and were hoping that he could restart his career in Baltimore while getting better guidance from the team. McClain's deal is for one year and $700,000, but none of the money is guaranteed.

No need to rush to judgement here... We're talking about Alabama police in a small town.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Now the Ravens look even smarter for not guaranteeing any money to this guy. That ought to be a new trend in the NFL for players with colorful histories.

I knew this might happen, just didn't think it would be so soon

April 22, 2013  03:25 PM ET

I wouldn't be surprised if they just decide he's too big of a knucklehead to even bother with.

Decatur AL is Bubba country. I lived there some time ago. Truly segregated country! I wouldn't blame McClain. Ity's a dry county too. Have to go to Huntsville to get a beer...lol!

You know he is starting these altercations, this guy is like 6'4 270 all muscle. Who is picking fights with his?

Who would start a fight with him, only stupid people or maybe Auburn fans.

Come on now. He's in a park, told to get out, and yells F the police.

Who's at fault here?

Dude signed "F Ya'll" on his ticket for tinted windows a month or so ago.

Who's at fault?

McClain has issues. He can't go home. Because when he does, he forgets his future. He's the only one to blame.

Probably another **** who always pulls the "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!?!?" nonsense when talking to the police.

I'd bet the guy arresting him for these serious crimes was on the other line of scrimmage in high school and got thumped a few times by Rolando. Time to move.

If the officer was on the football team with him wouldn't he be more apt to let Rolando skate and not lock him up!

That would be the view of most intelligent adults, but this is a pro athlete were talking about.
