McClain Pleads Not Guilty To Menacing, Firing Gun Within City Limits
DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – Decatur High School graduate and Oakland Raiders football player Rolando McClain was due for arraignment Wednesday in Decatur on several misdemeanor charges from a shooting last year.
But it won’t happen.
According to court records, McClain’s attorney filed a motion for him to plead not guilty to menacing and firing a gun within the city limits, among other things.
On August 20th, attorney Jason Knight waived arraignment on the charges.
McClain faces charges for allegedly firing a gun by the ear of Rishard Tapscott at a party in Decatur.
A municipal judge in Decatur convicted McClain of the charges earlier this year, and McClain appealed the ruling.
That sent the case into Circuit Court and it may eventually become a jury trial.
Tapscott has also filed a civil lawsuit against McClain.
