The attorney who filed a lawsuit for driving-related misconduct against NFL standout Rolando McClain has serious driving infractions on his own record, plus other instances of unlawful conduct.

Allan L. Armstrong is a lawyer in Birmingham, Alabama, the state where McClain grew up and went on to star as a linebacker at the University of Alabama. Armstrong filed a lawsuit last November, alleging that McClain twice struck UA student Matthew Mangham with a vehicle in 2008. Darrell L.

McClain allegedly then found Mangham and assaulted him, causing severe and permanent oral injuries.

The complaint states: "Upon information and belief, Defendant McClain has a history of aggressive and

violent behavior, including previous assaults and other criminal activity."
