Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2010 Draft out of Alabama, has been found guilty of “assault, reckless endangerment, menacing and wrongful discharge of a firearm” in Alabama. The 180-day sentence, scheduled to start June 1, could force him to miss the entire 2012 season.
McClain was arrested in December, after a shooting incident when he had returned to Alabama for his grandfather’s funeral.
From the Huntsville Times:
Police said the victim told them that McClain, now a linebacker with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders, put a pistol to his head while he was lying on the ground, and fired a shot next to his ear after he begged McClain not to shoot him.
