49ers linebacker Aldon Smith arrested for alleged hit-and-run, DUI
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Police in Northern California have arrested and accused San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith.
Santa Clara Police accuse Smith of hit and run, drunken driving and vandalism. The details of his arrest Thursday were not immediately available.
Police report Friday that he was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail and remains there on $26,000 bail.
He was arrested two years ago on drunken driving charges. Smith missed five games in 2013 after that arrest and went into a substance abuse rehabilitation clinic.
Last fall, Smith received a nine-game suspension for what the league called violations of its substance-abuse and personal-conduct policies.
Los Angeles-based Relativity Sports claims Smith as a client on its website. A representative was not immediately available for comment Friday morning.
Josh Bentley, a lawyer who represented Smith previously, also wasn’t immediately available for comment Friday.
Upon his release from jail, Smith told a reporter that it wasn’t a DUI.
