DECATUR, Ala. -- Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain is facing new charges in his north Alabama hometown.

Decatur police say the 23-year-old McClain is charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after a disturbance at a park Sunday.

Police haven't released details, but McClain is free from jail after posting a $1,000 bond.

McClain is now with the Ravens after being released by the Oakland Raiders.

This is third time McClain has been arrested in Decatur since 2011.

He was previously charged in a 2011 shooting, and police arrested him in January on charges of having his car windows tinted too darkly and trying to lie about his identity.

McClain was sentenced to jail on an assault charge after the shooting, but prosecutors later dismissed the case.
