49ers’ OLB Aldon Smith Arrested for Hit-And-Run, Vandalism, DUI



Well it appears that San Francisco 49ers OLB Aldon Smith may have just punched his ticket out of San Francisco as he was arrested for hit-and-run, DUI, and vandalism by Santa Clara Police, Thursday night.

According to ABC 7 Matt Keller, Smith’s bail is currently set at $26,000 at Santa Clara County jail.

Smith, who was looking to strike a long-term deal in a contract-year, will now likely be cut as 49ers GM Trent Baalke may have no choice but to go in another direction.

So what has Smith accomplished during his time in San Francisco? Here is the lengthy list of run-ins with the law since he was drafted back in 2011.

Timeline of Aldon’s off-field incidents:

  • Jan. 27, 2012: Arrested for DUI in Miami Beach
  • June 29, 2012: Authorities found 5 unregistered weapons at his house and he was charged with 3 felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon
  • June 29, 2012: Suffered stab wounds at his own house party
  • Sept. 20, 2013: Arrested for suspicion of DUI with marijuana and pills in the car
  • April 13, 2014: Arrested at LAX for allegedly saying “bomb” to TSA; not charged
  • May 21, 2014: Pleads no contest to 3 felony weapon charges and one misdemeanor DUI (2nd DUI)
  • July 18, 2014: Sentenced to 12 days in Jail and 3 year probation
  • Aug. 6, 2015: Arrested for Hit-and-run, DUI, and vandalism

So who will be the next man up now that Smith is likely going to be out of action? Look for second-year OLB Aaron Lynch to now make a name for himself as he easily becomes the team’s best pass-rusher outside of OLB Ahmad Brooks.
