In unfortunate news this morning, 49ers OLB Aldon Smith was arrested for a DUI after being involved in a single vehicle accident in San Jose, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.




Smith, the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft, has been no stranger to authorities during his time in the NFL.

In January of 2012 he was arrested for DUI in Miami. A few months later he was stabbed multiple times at a house party, where a lawsuit emerged alleging him of firing several shots.

Smith is a big part of the 49ers defense with 3.5 sacks this season and 37 in his career, the most of any player in a three-year span.

Hopefully Smith can find a way to turn things around off the field, because so far he’s not doing much to protect himself.

I guess Smith doesn’t have an up-to-date Smartphone to download the app that the NFLPA created to avoid issues like this.


Update: Smith was also charged with Marijuana possession during his arrest which came after running into a tree.
