Add possession of marijuana to Aldon Smith’s list

As the news stacks up regarding this morning’s DUI arrest for 49ers outside linebacker, there’s plenty of reason to wonder if he’ll play this week.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, Smith was also charged with possession of marijuana in addition to suspicion of DUI. He was arrested at 7 a.m., which means he was ostensibly on his way to work when he crashed his car.

The 49ers have issued the usual boilerplate statement, but they have also provided precedent.

Last season, when defensive tackle DeMarcus Dobbs was arrested on similar charges after a single-car accident, they left him at home while the rest of the team traveled to St. Louis.

Then again, DeMarcus Dobbs doesn’t have 37.0 sacks in 34 career games, and the 49ers don’t have to board a plane this week, as they host the Colts.

    Alex Boone would like to punch Aldon Smith in the face.

    I think he’ll play this week, but once the league can complete their investigation, 4 games for substance abuse policy.

    Watch hypocrisy at work, anyhow 7a.m bruh u got a big big problem, must have taken that beatdown a little too hard. That hairstyle though lol

    He was still drunk on his way into work. What a clod. Plus you add in the Mary Jane. Is it that hard for these idiots. Its your freaking job. Don’t drink, do drugs, and show up on time while you are being employed. I wonder how many of these guys had real jobs before they got into the NFL.

    And the district attorney in San Jose is still considering whether to charge him for that house party shooting.

    apparently he modified some assault weapons illegally.

    If he gets weapons charges, his season could be over.

    Whiners should release him immediately so that my Hawks can swoop in, snag him with our mighty talons, and put him on the straight and narrow.

    This is a job for Father Flanagan!! GO HAWKS!!

    Is there a LB on that team that doesn’t have several mug shots?

  8. trollhammer20 says: Sep 20, 2013 2:55 PM

    How does Cali define DUI? Is that for all drugs, or just for alcohol?

    I’m wondering if he was blazing in the car, and got pulled over for a minor traffic violation. Sounds a little more plausible to me than being drunk at 7 AM, but then, my college days are long behind me.

    As a Niner fan I am extremely disappointed. We just got our **** handed to us and this guy goes and parties till morning when the next game is just two days away?

    Niners have to send a clear message to him. Suspend him for the game and we can go from there. You know what if they lose the game because of it, then so be it.

    You have to draw the line here.

  10. cajuntigerman01 says: Sep 20, 2013 2:57 PM

    Once again it will be buried under the rug by the NFL and 49ERS. If he was just another “joe” he would already been suspended .

  11. unclepino says: Sep 20, 2013 2:57 PM

    Patrick Willis has no mug shots. As for Aldon…. This kid needs to smarten up and pull his head out of his a$$.

    It was liquor + pot + pills.

    He blew a .15

    I’m sorry…he was in an actual accident (not just pulled over), with controlled substances in his possession, and this is the SECOND time something like this has happenned??? The NFL actually provides a car service to avoid this kind of thing and it’s not like he can’t afford a cab. They should charge him with felony stupid. He could have killed someone.

  14. bucrightoff says: Sep 20, 2013 2:59 PM

    When Harbaugh always acts like the rules don’t apply or should be applied differently for him, why is it a shock his players feel the same?

  15. peytonsneck18 says: Sep 20, 2013 2:59 PM

    sit him sunday!!!! :)

  16. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Sep 20, 2013 3:00 PM

    So does Smith tie Titus Young’s record for number of times resetting the Turd Watch counter within a 24 hour period?

  17. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 20, 2013 3:00 PM

    Aldon didn’t have time to comb his hair because he was up all night drinking and smoking.

  18. lawchick35 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:00 PM

    Everyone, let Aldon handle whatever legal woes his enduring at this time. This isn’t a matter for anyone to involve themselves with.

  19. ccjcsr says: Sep 20, 2013 3:01 PM

    Roger Goodell is on line #1, something about giving to Charity?

  20. steelerben says: Sep 20, 2013 3:03 PM

    Someone in California had marijuana in their car!?! Stop the presses.

  21. deidunx says: Sep 20, 2013 3:05 PM

    Betting this goes away just like Lynch’s mysteriously went away too.

  22. woodrree7 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:06 PM

    All that noise in Seattle that caused this. He needed to weed for the deafness caused by that crowd. It was for medical reasons…….

  23. swaggyy says: Sep 20, 2013 3:08 PM

    BTW! I love the fact that last weekends beat down has humbled a few Niner fans. A few.

  24. ringwormsherm says: Sep 20, 2013 3:09 PM

    Omg the Seahawks are all drug addicts and cheaters. Says every whiner fan. Meanwhile your players drive drunk and assault people. Quest for six…..DUI’s.

  25. sGoDonkos says: Sep 20, 2013 3:10 PM

    at least von miller only spilled urine samples. von > aldon

  26. rasalghoul says: Sep 20, 2013 3:10 PM

    Million dollar talent, fifty cent brain. Just watching some of these clowns talk makes you cringe at the thought that they have a college education.

  27. gbmickey says: Sep 20, 2013 3:13 PM

    The drug testing in the NFL is a complete joke and its easy to understand why the NFLPA is fighting HGH testing for the players. They have it pretty good deal that they have no fear by lighting up during the season, yet look at the amount of morons who get caught. i believe there is a 1 month window in March to get tested (unless previously failed, then random) then they are home free for the rest of the season.

  28. lionsfan54 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:17 PM

    And Suh gets the $100,000 fine? I hate the NFL

    The team SHOULD suspend him for the next game, and RIGHTFULLY so.

  31. peddealer says: Sep 20, 2013 3:22 PM

    He needs PEDs not performance reducing drugs!

  32. vwbrown19 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:23 PM

    He looks like a total idiot go see a barber and get a hair cut or at the least comb your hair. moron

  33. sactown9er916 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:26 PM

    He should change the spelling of his name to Alldone

    Sure thing.. Let’s not get involved talking about a player that has proven to be dangerous to himself and people around him. Not to mention the little fact that we as fans contribute to his millionaire status. SMH

  35. jspyle says: Sep 20, 2013 3:41 PM

    I’m really not surprised. Guys already being sued by folks claiming they got caught in crossfire while trying to leave one of Aldons parties and now this? Guy needs to be benched for his own good, but he will play Sunday, because thats how the NFL works. Like someone else said, if he was a scrub he would already have been let go, but as he’s a starter so the fine and upstanding Niner organization will “look into it”. Even the teams fans are now the gangsta reps of the league (can you say Norteno???). The Niner fans now give Raider & Eagle fans a good name!!! Gotta love it!!!!

  36. upperdecker19 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:52 PM

    He bought it legally in Seattle last week

  37. elwaysagenius says: Sep 20, 2013 3:55 PM

    Should get 6 like Von

  38. forsbergler says: Sep 20, 2013 3:57 PM

    And this whole time I thought his perm was the non pot smoking type. “It’s hard out here for a pimp…try’n ta get that money for a rent.”

    Niners will look the other way on this one.

  41. axespray says: Sep 20, 2013 4:22 PM

    Didn’t Ahmad Brooks bash a dude’s head in with a beer bottle?

    So I wouldn’t be surprised to see San Jose/Niners/The League all turn a blind eye to this.

  42. screechdaddy says: Sep 20, 2013 4:23 PM

    Somebody needs to sit this kid down and explain the difference between rings and handcuffs.

  43. seattlelibtard says: Sep 20, 2013 4:28 PM

    He was last seen leaving the house of the 49er fans who think it’s unfair for crowds to yell at games.

  44. jonkchar says: Sep 20, 2013 7:14 PM

    I think he should accept all and any consequences, but as a Seahawks fan I do kind of sympathize, he had a horrible , horrible game last Sunday. I wonder if anyone game him a stern talking to in the locker room

    Well, The DUI(.15 bac) alone wouldn’t have been as bad(alcohol classes for 4 months and a $1,500 fine), but with California laws, the fact that he hit a tree while drunk means it is a felony(any accident that involves damage to another vehicle, property or pedestrian).

    As a Niners fan I think the best thing for him is to serve some jail time, maybe that’ll sober him up, say 3 or 4 months…..hopefully his attorneys can postpone the court dates to after the season.
