The 31-year-old McKane told KENS-TV that he’s not a “bad guy” and his character has been demonized.

McKane told the San Antonio Express-News that he grew up in a violent, impoverished neighborhood. McKane said in 2006 he paid traffic fines over use of his ID. He told KSAT-TV someone impersonated him.

McKane says he spent a week jailed in 2007 and doesn’t know why.

He was convicted of assault in 2012.
