Aldon Smith in L.A. for hearing to wrap up incident at LAX

49ers linebacker Aldon Smith isn’t facing any charges from an April incident at Los Angeles International Airport, but he still had some housekeeping to take care of regarding the issue on Wednesday.

Bill Williamson of ESPN was the first to report that Smith is in Los Angeles instead of at practice on Wednesday to take part in a hearing that will officially close the case. Smith ran afoul of authorities at LAX when he made reference to having a bomb that he did not actually possess. Coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed Smith was absent, but wouldn’t confirm the reason.

“He’s going through a process,” Harbaugh said, via Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group.

Smith was recently sentenced to 12 days in jail on gun and DUI charges from a different incident, but has not yet heard anything about any discipline from the league for his walks on the wrong side of the law. Smith said last week that he expects to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell soon for a discussion on that front.

    He is standing in front of a chalkboard, a la Bart Simpson, writing, “I will not say that I have a bomb while standing in line at airport security ever again” one hundred times. Hope he brought his flask with him.

    Everyone is “going through a process”, according to Jim. Whether they’re passing waste in a bathroom stall down the hall, or having an autopsy done on them at the local morgue.

    Did he not see “Meet the Fockers”? You’re not supposed to say bomb at the airport.

    Dude should be in jail… You can’t say bomb at an airport

    @jayniner — do you even know the team? Tank is a DT playing behind Justin and Ray competing to be the first DT off the bench.

    Never was nor will he ever be an OLB…..

    Carradine still going to be a sack monster.

    Maybe Santa Clara’s front office should send out another instructional letter. This one can explain who is currently on the team, and what position the player plays….

    Dont’ fret 9er fans. The discipline will be light. The Irsay matter is still pending & he needs a case to light Jimmy the pill bottle off light.

    archanonymous – He is actually a 3-4 DE backing up Ray/Justin that may kick it inside on 3rd downs, but who’s counting.

    OKC wishes they had him

    Fearing he really overdid the punishment thing on poor Ray Rice,Aldon will get off with a stern warning and an apology for any inconvenience he may have had.
