McClainPosted by Josh Katzowitz

Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain reportedly was at home in Decatur, Ala., because he was set to attend his grandfather’s funeral. Apparently, he was involved in some scary extracurricular activities.

He was arrested after an incident where gunshots were fired Wednesday night, and though a victim at the scene refused medical help, he then drove himself to the hospital to be treated. McClain has been charged with assault and discharging a gun.

But the San Francisco Chronicle and the Contra Costa Times bring us news that is rather shocking: the alleged victim told police that McClain stood over him and put a gun to the victim’s head. As the victim begged McClain for his life, McClain allegedly fired a shot next to the victim’s ear.

Currently, McClain was held on a $2,000 bond in Decatur but has since been released. He’s been charged with four misdemeanors (discharging firearm, third degree assault, menacing and reckless endangerment.), and according to the Times, yes, even firing a gun next to someone’s ear is considered a misdemeanor.

Before McClain was arrested, coach Hue Jackson said the organization was comfortable with the information the team received about the incident and that he expected McClain to play this Sunday, but since then, there's been no word from the team.

Idiot. Just because you are rich and famous does not mean you are above the law. These men embarace me to be cheering for them at football games. They need to learn common sence.

Sigh, some of these idiots just don't get it.  All the talent and money in the world, all you have to do is keep yourself out of trouble.  Sadly, a lot of those people end up pissing it all away.

bye-bye now. As a Raiders fan I would like to forget you exist and move on. If you are guilty of pointing a gun at someone's head and then discharging it next to it, I would prefer you go to jail for a very long time, at least as long as that lineman guy for the Packers who is going away for 6 years for illegal codein possession (oh my god the humanity)... what a crap world we live in.

Being a Raider fan (a real fan) I find this very dissappointing. If this does come out to be true, that of his actions, he needs to not only be suspended from the league but I hope the organization sits his ass too. He's needed very much on defense but this is just not acceptable behavior in a civilized society. I don't want to go off and bury him before we know truly what the details are, as often first reports are unreliable as far as details go. However, if true sit his ass the rest of the season. Period.

Great career ahead of him, good looking guy, probably hometown hero... yet acting like a thug?  What are these people thinking???
