Former Mizzou linebacker Aldon Smith wanted by San Francisco police

Former Oakland Raiders EDGE man Aldon Smith has found himself in the headlines once again for the wrong reasons following a domestic violence incident that occurred over the weekend.

Smith came into the league as a first-round pick out of the University of Missouri in 2011, drafted by the 49ers.

Aldon Smith needs help. Prosecutors agreed to charges that Smith drove under the influence in that incident.

Smith was arrested and charged with DUI again after a auto crash in September 2013.

Smith has not played in the National Football League since 2015 but is on Oakland's reserve/suspended list. He has had multiple arrests and citations since then, the most notable being a false bomb threat he allegedly made to a TSA agent at Los Angeles International Airport in 2014. No charges were filed in that incident. The 49ers released him 2015 after he was arrested and charged with his third drunken driving in four years. The team can have no contact with Smith, who has continued to have legal problems.

The San Francisco police statement ended by asking Smith to reach out to investigators with the department's special-victims unit at its 24-hour operations center at 415-575-4444.

On March 10, 2017, Smith was again detained by SFPD when he was a passenger in a vehicle that ran into a police cruiser.

Smith hasn't played for the Raiders in more than two years, but the one-year contract he signed on April 4, 2016 would have been valid should he ever have been reinstated by the NFL.
