Rolando McClain was arrested Sunday and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in Decatur, Ala. The newly-signed Ravens' linebacker's had several run-ins with the law in that area, his hometown.

Decatur police and Al.com (newspaper) both reported McClain's arrest after an incident at Pines Park in Decatur. Officers from that police department charged him with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

The Decatur police then said McClain was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond, and that more details on the arrest will be coming on Monday when they've had chances to review the reports.

Al.com also reported that both of these charges are misdemeanors.

In addition, Al.com said McClain was convicted in their municipal court on May 18, 2012 of reckless endangerment, menacing, third-degree assault and firing a gun in the city limits after an incident where he shot a handgun near the head of a childhood friend. That took place on Nov. 30, 2011.

Al.com said McClain was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but the charges were dismissed when "the victim, Richard Tapscott, declined to testify, The Decatur Daily reported."

In addition, Al.com reported that McClain was arrested on Jan. 8 in Decatur "on charges of violating the city's window tint code as well as providing false information to police."

The Ravens recently signed McClain to a one-year contract to fill the holes they've got at linebacker.
