DECATUR, Ala. (AP) Alabama prosecutors are dismissing charges against NFL 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 the 25-year-old Dallas Cowboys linebacker.

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 played college football at Alabama.
