Linebacker Rolando McClain has been convicted of his two charges, which consisted of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in April 2013.
McClain had reportedly yelled obscenities at the officer when he arrived at a park trying to calm a disturbance, and he has been convicted of these charges.
The linebacker was sentenced to 18 days in jail, and he was unable to have his trial delayed for the beginning of the Cowboys’ training camp.
McClain has also been in trouble with the law previously for third-degree assault and giving a false name to an officer after being pulled over for a window tint violation.
The Cowboys had traded for the troubled linebacker from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a 2015 sixth-round pick, and they also received a 2015 seventh-round pick from the Ravens.
The trade is already looking foolish in hindsight, but McClain was selected by the Oakland Raiders eighth overall in the 2010 draft.
He had been a unanimous All-American at Alabama in 2009 while helping them win a BCS national title, and he was rewarded with SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors.
McClain will look to put his troubles behind him and report to training camp.
