Well, it looks like Rolando McClain will have a new nickname at every visiting stadium he plays in from now on. The 23-year-old Raiders linebacker was arrested on Tuesday for giving a false name to a law enforcement officer, according to DecaturDaily.com. The name he gave: “[Expletive] Y’all.” (Is that Irish?) During a traffic stop on the Central Parkway in Decatur, Ala., McClain was cited for having illegal tints on his Silverado. According to the report, officer Derek Annerton was “unable to recognize the driver” because the tint was so dark. “The tint was so dark that he immediately recognized that it was darker than what’s allowed by law. He couldn’t tell anything about the driver — couldn’t tell if it was male or female,” police spokesman Lt. John Crouch said. McClain told the officers that he has a letter from his doctor for his car’s tints. He produced the printed letter to the officers, which reportedly stated that McClain had “photosensitivity and needed maximum ultraviolet radiation protection to include window tinting.” Because the doctor’s note wasn’t written on a medical prescription, the officers produced a citation and told McClain that he can bring the doctor’s note to his court date. That’s when things got interesting. “McClain took [the ticket] and appeared to sign it, but when officer Annerton got the ticket book back, he saw that McClain had written ‘[Expletive] y’all’ instead of signing his name,” said Crouch. “I’m falsely accused of everything,” the linebacker later said. “It’s corrupt. It’s terrible.” Whatever you say, Mr. Y’all.
