San Jose Police arrested former Missouri Tigers star Aldon Smith on suspicion of DUI Friday morning after he was involved in a single-car accident. Smith was not injured, but was taken to Santa Clara County Jail, where he was being held on $5,250 bail. His status for Sunday’s San Francisco game against the Indianapolis Colts in question.
The 49ers released a statement:
“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.”
This is Smith’s second arrest on a drunken driving charge. Those charges from a January 2012 arrest in Miami Beach were later reduced to reckless driving. Trouble keeps mounting for Smith. Just last month, he and former teammate Delanie Walker, were sued by a man who says he was shot in the leg at a party thrown at Smith’s San Jose home. No criminal charges have been filed in that case.
Smith was selected 7th overall by San Francisco in the 2011 NFL Draft
