Alabama prosecutors are dismissing charges against Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain stemming from his arrest in a park in his hometown in 2013.
Court records show prosecutors asked a judge Monday to end the case against McClain, 25.
McClain was arrested in April 2013 when Decatur police were trying to clear a crowd that had gathered for a softball game. He allegedly cursed at officers and pulled away as they tried to arrest him.
McClain was convicted on misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in city court last year and appealed to state court for another trial.

The case was set for trial May 18 when prosecutors asked the court to dismiss the charges. No reason is given in court documents.
McClain, who played college football at Alabama, was a defensive standout in 2014 for the Cowboys, who acquired him in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens. McClain, a former first-round draft pick of the Raiders, was a washout in Oakland and twice retired before his resurgence in Dallas.
The Cowboys re-signed McClain to a one-year, $3 million deal in April.
