DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -
A Decatur judge found Rolando McClain guilty on all counts. McClain faced charges of assault, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm.
Former Alabama and current Oakland Raider football player Rolando McClain appeared in court Thursday morning.
McClain is charged in a December 2011 assault case. The victim claimed McClain pressed a gun to his head and fired a shot past his ear.
Video recently surfaced showing McClain and the victim arguing and Jarodiuas Willingham beating on the victim. Legal analysts said the video may not hold up in MCclain's case since it never shows him attacking the victim.
McClain went before a Decatur judge along with co-defendant Jarodiuas Willingham Thursday morning.
Willingham pleaded guilty to third degree assault and agreed to testify against McClain. Willingham faces 90 days in jail and a fine of $296.
The victim also testified against McClain. Christian Tapscott claimed after he had been beaten, he went to his car to get a box cutter to defend himself. Tapscott said when he went back inside the home to get his keys, McClain said. "I will kill you. I will blow your head off."
