This kid needs serious help, needs to step away from the game for a long, long while (the NFL I am sure will help with that.....)

 

Just the next man who will either not be playing for the Niners this year, or will miss most of the season (9 game suspension last year for similar events)

Oft-troubled linebacker Aldon Smith of the San Francisco 49ers was arrested Thursday night on hit and run, driving under the influence and vandalism charges, according to police in Santa Clara, California.

Smith was booked into the Santa Clara County jail and held on $26,000 bond before his release Friday. Authorities said they would provide more information later Friday morning.

This is the 25-year-old Smith's third arrest on suspicion of drunken driving since entering the league in 2011 as a first-round draft pick out of Missouri.

 

A 49ers team source told ESPN's Josina Anderson: "He [smith] was on a track and he was making good decisions. But I'll say one thing, there shouldn't be a rush to judgment. We need to figure out what happened and not go into a instant panic. There is usually much more to a story. Let's not overreact and say his career with the 49ers is over just yet."

 

Sure thing, do not panic but............

 

 

 

Smith was arrested on suspicion of DUI in January 2012, a charge that was later reduced to reckless driving. Later that year, he faced three felony weapons charges stemming from a June 2012 party at his home. Police said several shots were fired, two partygoers were injured and Smith was stabbed. Smith pleaded not guilty, and the weapons charges were later reduced.

Smith was arrested and charged with DUI again after a car accident in September 2013. He voluntarily entered rehab and missed five games that season. In July 2014, Smith was sentenced to 11 days of work release for that DUI in Santa Clara.

In August 2014, Smith was suspended for the first nine games of last season for violating the NFL's personal-conduct and substance-abuse policies, in connection to the 2013 drunken-driving arrest.

Smith also was arrested April 13, 2014, at Los Angeles International Airport. Police said he was randomly selected for a secondary screening and became uncooperative, telling a TSA agent he had a bomb. No charges were filed in that incident.

A once great team is hitting the skids. Reminds me of the Colts in the 70's....

 

 

 

The 49ers as the dynamic forward-thinking model of modern success is utterly gone, and replaced by a rolling public disaster that brings one fragmentation grenade of national ridicule after another. No matter what happens to them, it will be linked to their apparent inability to comprehend and develop success.

Harbaugh leaving? Agendas run rampant. The Jim Tomsula press conference? Lousy prep by the people surrounding Tomsula, who deserved better even today. Surface Of The Sun Stadium? Poor planning in search of profit and glory. All the player departures? Either they hated Harbaugh or hated the organization. Even Chris Borland? Well, that’s gotta be someone’s fault even if it isn’t. The player misconduct? Lack of organizational direction.

Fair? No. Life in the new NFL? You bet. Life in the Internet age? Without question. Even chickens that weren’t theirs are coming home to roost. http://www.csnbayarea.com/49ers/releasing-aldon-49ers-annus-horribilis-reaches-critical-mass
