Aldon Smith DUI & Felony Assault Weapon Charges
 
http://bleacherreport.com/tb/bdFRR?u...ium=newsletter

Quote:

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has been charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach.

Harrison: Is Alex the answer?
After a fine resurgence under Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers must answer a few questions. Most pressing: Is Alex Smith a franchise QB? Elliot Harrison weighs in. More ...
Miami-Dade County jail records show Smith was booked Saturday morning and held on $1,000 bond. Jail records did not show whether Smith was represented by an attorney.

A Miami-Dade County Corrections spokeswoman said Smith was arrested by Miami Beach police. A police spokesman said he had no information immediately available about the arrest.

The 49ers issued a statement on Saturday afternoon.

"The 49ers are aware of the recent matter involving Aldon Smith," it read. "We take these issues very seriously, but will reserve further comment at this time, as this is an ongoing legal matter. The 49ers will continue to gather the facts and monitor the developments closely.

Smith was selected as the seventh overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He recorded 14 sacks during his first season, a franchise record for a rookie linebacker. He also ranked first in the NFL in sacks among rookies.

Obviously the cop was from Louisiana.

I bet as soon as the cop said "You're under arrest" he immediately ran to the cop car and sat down in the backseat.

Uh oh...


Matt Maiocco ‏@MaioccoCSN1h
49ers OLB Aldon Smith was arrested at 7 a.m. today under suspicion of DUI, according to San Jose Police.

Cam Inman ‏@CamInman19m
Per @mercnews: #49ers Aldon Smith blew a .15 in his DUI arrest; has prescription for the marijuana; crashed into a tree


Cam Inman ‏@CamInman8m
Correction: Aldon Smith did NOT have prescription for marijuana found in car. Either way, NFL players can't use under its policy

Uh-oh indeed. How does California feel about 2nd offense DUI with a little illegal eye medicine to boot? Serious question. Some states would come down hard on him while others, not so much.

Either way he's missing some major playing time, per Goodell. Niner Nation must be going nuts about now.

I have zero tolerance for anyone who is stupid enough to drive under the influence, especially if they had an earlier wake-up-call like this idiot. He deserves to do time.

He's had more trouble than I was aware of. Kid needs to grow the F up....fast.

Marijuana and pills also were found in the car, sources said. Smith had a blood alcohol level of .15 -- nearly twice the legal limit -- and didn't have a prescription for pot, sources said.
Quote:

"Every time as the years go on, I mature more and more," Smith, a Kansas City native, said in an interview last month.
Quote:

It is Smith's second such arrest, the first having occurred in January 2012 in Miami Beach. That charge was later reduced to reckless driving, but Smith has since been involved in several other off-field incidents.

I hear the penal system helps people do just that.

Doesn't even need to rent one; the NFL provide them free of charge.

From what has been said though players feel like its not anonymous and it gets back to the team. Still a better option though than getting drunk behind the wheel.

Not that it makes a difference to whether players should use it but it is not free. Last time they published a rate it was $90/hr.
