Aldon Smith under investigation for domestic incident [report]


The NFL refused to reinstate Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith in 2016, and now, the former 49er is apparently in trouble again.

TMZ Sports is reporting Smith is under investigation for a domestic incident Saturday in San Francisco.

No arrests have been made.

During his tenure with the 49ers, Smith was arrested five times in three years. The final straw was a DUI, hit and run and vandalism charges in 2015. Other incidents included a driving under the influence in Miami that was later reduced to reckless driving in 2012, an arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence while crashing into a tree in 2013, three felony counts of possessing illegal weapons in 2013, making a false bomb threat in 2014 at LAX (charges were not filed) and a bizarre video last July where it appeared Smith was smoking marijuana on the social media app Periscope.

The Raiders were anticipating the NFL to reinstate Smith in March, but the NFL takes domestic violence extremely seriously after a video of Ray Rice surfaced in 2014. Smith set an NFL record with 33.5 sacks in his first 32 NFL games.
