Raiders | Rolando McClain set to appear in court

Oakland Raiders LB Rolando McClain is set to appear in court Thursday, May 17, on charges of third degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm in the city limits. On the eve of McClain's trial, a disturbing video emerged that could threaten his case. The video claims McClain and his friend Jadoriaus Willingham attacked the alleged victim Rishard Tapscott. In the video, Tapscott is seen getting punched and kicked by Willingham. The video does not show McClain hitting the victim or brandishing a firearm, which he is alleged to have done. The video appears to be a composite of several cell phone videos taken and ends after someone off camera threatens to shoot. "It's obvious that McClain has been edited out of parts of it, but it matches up perfectly with (the victim)'s statements of it," attorney Carl Cole said. "I think this shows that there may be cracks in Willingham and McClain's circle of friends. They may not all be willing to hide what happened that night."
