According to ESPN, Aldon Smith was arrested for driving under the influence on Friday morning.
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence in San Jose, police said.
Smith was arrested by officers who received a call about a solo vehicle crash around 7 a.m., San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol said. Officers proceeded to take a breath sample and to conduct other tests.
"They conducted an investigation and determined he was under the influence," said Randol, who confirmed Smith was the driver of the vehicle.
"The 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Aldon Smith. As we continue to gather information regarding this situation, we will have no further comment," the team said in a statement.
Drunk at 7 am? Nice. The article also has this gem about Smith being named in a lawsuit as a man was at his house, got caught up in gunfire where Smith was involved, and got shot in the leg. His attorneys response? "Attorneys for Smith and Walker, 29, have said Esporlas "freely and voluntarily exposed himself to all risks of harm" by attending the party." Sounds like a real piece of crap to me.
