The story of Aldon Smith is one that only gets sadder over time. The former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders defensive end has found himself in more legal trouble, reportedly on the charge of a fourth DUI.
In March of 2018, Smith was arrested twice.
The first arrest came on a domestic violence incident on March 3, 2018, and the second came as a violation of the court order placed on Smith, requiring him not to contact the victim of the case. Smith violated the order, resulting in an arrest warrant from the San Francisco Police Department and turned himself in on March 23, 2018. He eventually pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges in relation to the domestic violence incident and saw him receive a 90-day prison sentence with three years probation.
Smith was released by the Raiders on March 5, following the incident. He had been arrested for at least three DUIs along with charges for marijuana possession, making a false bomb threat at LAX, felony weapons possession and other charges. He was released by the 49ers in 2015. Here is a full record of Smith’s arrests.
As of June 11, Smith has again been arrested on a DUI charge, according to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Mike Lerseth. Smith, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2015 with the Raiders, was reportedly arrested in Kansas on Monday, June 10 on suspicion of DUI, turning down a breathalyzer test.
