As it turns out San Francisco 49ers OLB Aldon Smith will not be charged for his LAX “bomb threat” incident that occurred in April. However, Smith will instead face a City Attorney Office Hearing on July 30 all while reserving the right to file and press charges up to one year after the April 13 incident.
A City Attorney Office hearing is administered by members of the City Attorney’s office in lieu of a criminal filing,” Frank Mateljan (spokesman) wrote in the email. “Involved parties are scheduled to attend and give their account of the incident. The individuals are then admonished about the applicable laws and given suggestions on how to avoid similar incidents in the future.”
With no charges currently being made, Smith will still need to face NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as he will certainly hand down some form of punishment for the All-Pro sack-artist (most likely a suspension).
