Rolando McClain signed a citation for overly dark window tint as "(Expletive) y’all," Decatur police said. #Raiders— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) January 9, 2013
According to Tafur, the officer asked McClain to provide his real name, at which point the Raiders linebacker said, "that is my name." He could have avoided the arrest and driven off with a ticket, according to the report, had he provided his name.
McClain also produced a letter from his doctor explaining the window tint.
McClain had letter from doctor about window tint. He has "photosensitivity, needs ultraviolet radiation protection." Maybe he can't see RBs— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) January 9, 2013
The middle linebacker, a first-round pick by the Raiders in 2010, is still under contract with the team, for now.
