HARTSELLE, AL (WAFF) -

Dallas Cowboys linebacker and former University of Alabama player Rolando McClain was arrested in Hartselle on Friday.

Harselle police Lt. Justin Barley said an officer pulled over McClain's vehicle around 1 p.m. on Chestnut Street near Alabama 31 and Alabama 36. The officer reportedly stopped the vehicle because the window tint was too dark.

Barley said the officer smelled marijuana coming from McClain's vehicle. A vehicle search revealed marijuana and a firearm that McClain didn't have a permit for, he said.

McClain was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana and carrying a pistol without a permit. He was also cited for the window tint.

McClain was booked into the Morgan County Jail on a $2,000 bond.

McClain has faced legal troubles before and is already facing an indefinite suspension for repeated substance abuse violations, which breaches the NFL's substance abuse policy.

McClain was suspended in November but has not yet been released from the NFL.
