If McClain must return home to Decatur, AL, we'd suggest he not leave the house. (US PRESSWIRE)

UPDATE: Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has been arrested in connection with an altercation Wednesdy night in Decatur, Alabama, WAFF 48 reports. Lt. John Crouch of the Decatur Police Department told CSNBayArea.com that, “I can tell you that Rolando McClain is under arrest. He’s been charged with third degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm in city limits. He is still in custody.”

Some free advice for Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain: stay out of Alabama. The team's former first-round pick out of the University of Alabama was at the scene of a reported shooting Wednesday night in his hometown of Decatur.

According to the Huntsville Times, police received a report of gunshots at 10:20 p.m. and arrived to find one person injured. The victim refused treatment, but drove to Decatur General Hospital, where he was treated and released. Lt. John Crouch said that McClain was present when the fight took place.

It's the second time this year McClain has been present when gunshots were fired. Both incidents took place in Decatur.

In January, someone fired shots at McClain's Chevy Tahoe. The Raiders linebacker told police that he thought it came from a group standing on a street corner as he drove past. McClain wasn't hurt (which is more than we can say for Josh Freeman who injured his thumb over Halloween at the firing range) but officers found a slug near the vehicle's rear hatch.

The Raiders told CSNBayArea.com that "We are aware of the incident. At this time, we have no further comment."

McClain has started 25 of a possible 27 games since joining the NFL in 2010, including 10 starts in 2011. He has 57 tackles and two sacks this season.


The Oakland Raiders have won their last three straight and look to continue this week as they take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Jason Horowitz and NFL.com's Pat Kirwan preview this game. Watch the game at 1 PM ET on CBS.

Well this is just a situation once again where a NFL player has to use better judgment and walk away from things like this. Better yet he probably was somewhere he shouldn't have been and his career is much more important and focusing on the team is the main goal. McClain should be able to keep distractions away and focus on football!!!!! As Al Davis would say just win baby!!!!!!!

OK, LA and Santa Clara, the bidding for the Raiders starts now.....anyone?....LA?....Santa Clara?.....nothing?  And the winner is Oakland!  Nice fit with Occupy, murders at shopping centers, pre-teen prostitution, drugs and population loss.
