Report: McClain arrested in Alabama

Decatur, AL (Sports Network) - Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain was reportedly arrested Sunday night.

According to WHNT in Alabama, McClain refused a police order to leave a large group and cursed at officers. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

McClain signed with the Ravens earlier this month, agreeing to a one-year contract. The Baltimore Sun had reported it to be worth a base salary of $700,000, with playing time incentives of up to an additional $400,000.

The 23-year-old Alabama product was released by Oakland on April 5 following a disappointing and turbulent three-year tenure with the Raiders, who selected him with the eighth overall selection of the 2010 draft. McClain was suspended for two games late last season after clashing with head coach Dennis Allen, then was declared an inactive for Oakland's final three contests.

McClain did start nine of the 11 games he played in during 2012 and recorded 62 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. He set career bests with five sacks and 99 stops while making 14 starts the previous year.
