It didn’t take long for the newest Raven to get back in trouble.

Less than two weeks after signing with the Ravens, Rolando McClain was busted….. again.  And, it happened in the place where he said he knew he had to avoid.  His hometown of Decatur, Alabama.

On the surface, it doesn’t seem like a big deal, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.  It’s not like he beat anyone up or was selling drugs. However, I spoke with a lieutenant in the Decatur police department this morning as he was reviewing video of the incident.

He told me that McClain was walking by a police car as he turned to a crowd of people (estimated to be about 700 people), and shouted “F— the Police.”

This is how riots start.  And, the officer told me that they have it on video, with the audio.

McClain is already out on bond from another arrest, with that trial due May 7.  The prosecutor could revoke bond and put him in jail until that trial.

The Ravens knew they were getting a problem child, but they didn’t think he would get in trouble this quick. I am all for innocent until proven guilty and second chances.  That said, this guy said he would avoid Decatur and has faced serious legal problems already.

If Ozzie meant it when he said that McClain was just going to compete for a spot on the roster and that’s it, then I’d cut him now.  If Ozzie was tempering expectations and they plan on McClain starting, then I bet they give him more rope.
