Former Cowboys’ Rolando McClain Arrested on Weed, Firearm Charges
Back in June of last year, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain was suspended 10 games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Back in November, he was less than 24 hours from finally touching the field when he was suspended for yet another year for missing another drug test.
Now without a team, the chances of him making an NFL comeback are pretty much over after it was reported on Friday that the former University of Alabama was arrested on equipment violations, firearm and drug charges, according to the Hartselle Police Department.
“Officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for a window tint violation on Chestnut Street near the Alabama 31 and Alabama 36 junction, Hartselle police spokesman Lt. Justin Barley said.
As the officer approached the vehicle, he smelled the aroma of marijuana coming from the vehicle and conducted a search, Barley said.
McClain, 27, was found with marijuana and was also carrying a firearm without a permit, he said.
The incident occurred between 1 and 1:15 p.m. today, police said.
McClain was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, carrying a firearm without a permit and a misdemeanor equipment violation. “
McClain was being held in the Morgan County Jail in lieu of $2,000 bail.
