Rolando McClain was arrested on Tuesday when he gave police officers a fake name when signing his ticket. Rolando McClain didn’t sign the ticket using his government name, rather he told the government what they can do with his name.
McClain reportedly wrote (expletive) Y’all on his ticket, and was promptly arrested for it. While that seems to be the official report, McClain is suggesting otherwise, and has come out and said he believes the cops that arrested him are corrupt and that he’s being falsely accused.
“I’m falsely accused of everything,” McClain said, via the Decatur Daily, before climbing into his white Chevrolet Silverado Z-71 and driving from the parking lot of City Hall. “It’s corrupt. It’s terrible.”
From the Decatur Daily:
When a patrol supervisor asked McClain to put his real name on the ticket, McClain told the sergeant, “That is my name,” said police spokesman Lt. John Crouch.
Crouch said McClain, 23, who was booked into Decatur City Jail shortly after 4 p.m. on the misdemeanor and the window tint violation, could have avoided arrest simply by signing his name to the ticket.
He was released on $1,000 cash bail a short time later.
Personally, if you’re going to have that kind of a comeback with police officers, at least own it. McClain is claiming his innocence, but seeing as McClain was alone, crying corruption when being arrested is one step short of blaming the other guy had he had someone else in the car with him.
