McClain, 22, was charged with third-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm inside the city limits, all of which are misdemeanors, police said. He was in Decatur City Jail this afternoon on bonds totaling $2,000.
The victim, whose name was not released, told police that he got into a fight with (Jerradius) Willingham Wednesday night. The victim told police who had responded to the call that he crawled to his car after the fight.
McClain, a University of Alabama alum, reportedly held the firearm at the accuser’s head while he was on the ground before firing next to his head. Unecessarily firing a gun off at someone’s head can be viewed as a form of torment, especially with the accuser already on the ground.
Back in January 2011 McClain’s truck was shot at, also in Alabama. McClain can most likely expect an investigation from the NFL, but the immediate concern for McClain and the Raiders should be to separate McClain from life-threatening incidents such as these before someone is seriously injured, incarcerated or worse.
