Aldon Smith Arrested

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. Aldon Smith, who had a bench warrant issued for him at the end of March for failing to appear at a hearing — and who was arrested just a week before for violating a protective order stemming from a domestic violence incident — was arrested again on Friday. Per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (via TMZ), Smith’s most recent arrest was due to his violating the terms of his electronic monitoring (he currently wears a GPS and a device that measures alcohol in his sweat, though it is unclear which of those devices triggered the arrest).

Bail has been set at $500K, and another hearing is set for April 11. He currently remains incarcerated, according to San Francisco County Jail records, and in addition to the underlying domestic violence charges, he is now facing three separate contempt of court charges. The TMZ report also indicated that Smith’s fiance, Shawna McKnight, has decided to end her relationship with Smith.

It was already almost a foregone conclusion that Smith, the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft, would never suit up in the NFL again after the Raiders released him a month ago. But in just 59 career regular season games, he posted 47.5 sacks (to go along with 5.5 sacks in eight postseason contests), so he was certainly on pace to be an all-time great pass-rusher. Now one just has to hope he can get his post-football life on track.

He has not seen the field since November 15, 2015, which will likely go down as his last NFL game.

    You can take the player out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of the player. The guy had the world in his hands and he threw it away. What a loser.

    The “contempt of court” charges will be dropped. 90% they are. The domestic violence charge will be dropped to a misdemeanor and he will get probation. One more team will give him a chance and he will mess that up then be out of the NFL.

      He hasn’t played since 2015 I doubt teams are going to be interested in signing him.

        Doesn’t matter if a team would be willing. If, and I mean if, the NFL ever let him step foot on a field again he would be so far removed I doubt he would be worth anything anyways.

    I just love reading all these salty comments, it really makes my day that people have nothing better to do in life then just to degrade someone’s life that has messed up. Good Job everyone, you just upgraded yourself to the newest asshole’s of the week

      Scyie people are entitled to their opinions, they gave theirs and you have yours. BTW, this isn’t Facebook where you can only give a thumbs up, people can whiz all over this clown for the talent and opportunities wasted.

      Congratulations! You just proved your eyesight is better than most of the NFL game officials. Roger Goodell would like you to come to NY to discuss job opportunities at your earliest convenience.
