Former Ravens fullback Le’Ron McClain was arrested on a felony charge of trafficking synthetic marijuana in Alabama on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old was arrested in his hometown of Tuscaloosa after being found with 122 grams of synthetic marijuana, also known as “spice.” McClain hasn’t played in the NFL this season after being cut by the San Diego Chargers in March, and he last played for the Ravens during the 2010 season.
McClain is being held on $500,000 bond and could reportedly face a minimum three-year prison sentence and $50,000 fine if convicted of the charge under Alabama state law.
Drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round of the 2007 draft out of the University of Alabama, McClain made the Pro Bowl in 2008 and 2009. His best season came in 2008 when he received extensive time at tailback, rushing for 902 yards and 10 touchdowns.
