Rolando McClain Arrested For Signature: Raiders Linebacker Signed Traffic Ticket ‘F*** Y’All’
Rolando McClain was arrested for a signature — or rather what he wrote instead of a signature.
The Oakland Raiders linebacker was given a traffic citation in Alabama for having tinted windows. Apparently angry at the ticket, McClain instead decided to sign his name as “F*** Y’All.” Police gave McClain a chance to provide his real name, but he responded that the expletive was his real name, Big Lead Sports noted.
McClain was then arrested for the signature and giving police a fake name. He was charged with both the fake name and the violations for having tinted windows and released on $1,000 cash bail. Decatur police said that McClain would have avoided arrest if he had just signed the ticket.
He maintains that he did nothing wrong.
“I’m falsely accused of everything,” McClain said as he left City Hall, “it’s corrupt. It’s terrible.”
This is the second time a little more than a year that McClain is in trouble with the law in Decatur. In November 2011 he was accused for assaulting a former friend, and video of the fight showed up of the incident in May. McClain was convicted in that case and sentenced to six months in jail, but a judge later dismissed the case and dropped the charges.
McClain was convicted of all charges and handed a six-month jail sentence in May, but following appeal of the case to circuit court, a judge dismissed the case in November.
Though McClain was arrested for a signature, he claims to have a good reason for the tinted windows, the Decatur Daily reported. McClain showed police a letter from his doctor saying that he had “photosensitivity and needed maximum ultraviolet radiation protection to include window tinting.”
