Aldon Smith was arrested last Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence after colliding with one other vehicle. It was also reported that marijuana and pills were found in the car at the time of the arrest. Aldon was already on thin ice and with this arrest, and could now be facing consequences from the NFL.
This is Smith’s second alcohol-related incident. During the 2012 offseason, after the 49ers were eliminated from the playoffs, Smith was stabbed at a party in San Jose. Two others were shot and all three were in the hospital being treated for minor injuries. Ronndale Esporlas, the plaintiff in the suit that followed the incident, according to NBC Bay Area, “alleged that he suffered ‘serious, catastrophic and permanent injuries’ when he was caught in a ‘crossfire’ of bullets.”
Smith’s trouble off the field has added up to the point where the NFL will need to intervene with disciplinary actions. As of yet Smith has not faced any punishment, but with his latest arrest he could be looking at a suspension. While that punishment could come as late as the 2014 season, the 49ers could step in before then to deal out their own punishment.
Aldon Smith was the No. 7 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. The 23-year-old earned his first Pro-Bowl and first-team All-Pro spot in 2012.
