Rolando McClain has reportedly been arrested again in Alabama. No, you’re not experiencing de ja vu. McClain remarkably found himself in handcuffs for the third time in his professional career, second in 2013, Sunday evening.

This time around, according to WHNT-TV in Huntsville, Ala., McClain refused to leave a park when a large group he was part of was asked to by police. McClain reportedly started shouting curses at the officers before they proceeded to place him under arrest and take him to city jail, where he's likely on a first-name basis with the guards. He was reportedly bonded out a short time later. He faces charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

The arrest happened in where else but his hometown of Decatur, Ala. Decatur is the scene of the crime, alleged or otherwise, for all three of McClain’s arrests. In January he was arrested when a simple window tint violation turned into a confrontation with cops after he gave the police a false name.

Here’s McClain’s former teammate in Oakland DeMarcus Van Dyke with some sound advice for him:

The Raiders released McClain earlier this month after three spectacularly disappointing seasons on the field and off. His issues with the Raiders coaching staff last season were much documented. Oakland contently, perhaps even more so Sunday night, ate up over $7 million in dead money just to get rid of the problem. Not long after, the Ravens signed McClain for a relatively low-risk one-year, $1.1 million deal.

While it’s easy to joke about McClain’s problems, his already tumultuous career has fully devolved into a tragic saga. He clearly has issues with authority. And it’ll mean the end of his career unless he can fix that.

But for once the Raiders are hearing news about Rolando McClain getting arrested and don’t have to be burdened by it. Good luck with that, Ravens.
