Authorities at the Decatur City Jail in Alabama say the 23-year-old McClain was pulled over Tuesday because of the tint violation. When McClain was asked to sign a ticket, police say he provided a false name.

Officials say McClain was taken into custody and posted $1,000 bond.

McClain had been sentenced to jail time on an assault charge. He was accused of firing a gun next to a man's head in 2011, also in Decatur. Those charges were later dismissed.

McClain served a two-game suspension this season for conduct detrimental to the Raiders. The team had no comment on his latest arrest.
