Aldon Smith “cooperating” with San Francisco police

AP

A report on Monday indicated that police had responded to a domestic incident involving Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith over the weekend and the San Francisco Police Department confirmed that they responded to a call involving Smith.

Smith is mentioned in a report about their response and described as cooperative, but no details about what led to the call for police help have been made public at this time.

“He is cooperating with SFPD and the reporting party,” Officer Grace Gatpandan said, via ESPN.com. “The report was taken over the weekend, and he was mentioned in the report.”

The Raiders are barred from contact with Smith while he remains on suspension. Recent reports indicated Smith was set for reinstatement in March unless further trouble caused a change in the league’s feelings.

Raiders owner Mark Davis has said “we can’t have it on our team” in reference to domestic violence, although it remains unclear if Smith has violated that edict and if the Raiders are going to have a decision to make on Smith’s future with the team anytime soon.

  1. bogus story! anything bad he would have been arrested on the spot. he will help lead the Raiders back to greatness and you haters can keep hating

  2. Why is there still any discussion of this guy returning to the NFL? The raiders are finally digging themselves out of the general perception they have been one of the joke franchises of the NFL, haven’t they finally learned?!

  3. Well, I set the over/under line on his next suspension at 41/2 games. If you took the under you probably won.

  4. I am inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. Not because he has earned that by any stretch. But simply because I don’t know him personally, so my thoughts are, he can’t actually be this stupid. Can he?

  5. Who didnt see this coming? His track record, it pretty much speaks for itself. Cant get out of his own way. Guy needs intervention, help or something. Sadly squandering away a very good life for what?

  6. His 1yr 2015 contract ended and what would have been his 2016-2017 2yr contract (signed whilst he was suspended from the league) was completely tolled (delayed from even starting) until the NFL decides his future. Doesn’t this technically mean he isn’t on the team and thus the team arguably could phone him and ask what’s going on? – grey area – I’m sure they know anyway!

  7. P.S. Aldon must have already had some contact with the Raiders while suspended, in order to sign that 2016 tolled contract.

  8. Aldon has a past that makes me automatically judge this man. Not my style at all and am actually taken back by it. I hate to judge. Lesson to the younger crowd in here. “Regardless…. Your reputation proceeds you”.

    Get your act together, Aldon, or find better company!

  9. Aldon is a good kid, he’s just misunderstood.
    I’ll be happy when this blows over.
    I’m sure he had nothing to with it.

  10. IF he did anything unlawful, anything, they need to dump his arse. I never liked this signing to begin with.

  11. And here comes Nayshun, right on cue. There boy did nothing wrong. If there is nothing, what are the police investigating? Time to write the chick a check.

  12. “Domestic Incident” could be one of many things, and the police report lists him as being cooperative in an investigation that isn’t about his actions. I get it – reputation proceeds you and all – but there just isn’t anything substantial about Aldon in any of this. At least not from what I’ve seen.

  13. If this “investigation” is anything like Zeke Elliot’s, Aldon will be playing for at least 5 years… Oh unless there’s a difference between judging Dallas and Raiders players…”Hey Roger, Jerrah on line 1″.

  14. This clown needs a new football uniform. One that has stripes on it and a long number across the back and chest.
    Seriously, let him go play football in a maximum security facility where he belongs.

  15. Aldon Smith “cooperating” with San Francisco police.

    Cooperating? That’s a first. Maybe he really is trying to get better.

  16. Smith may or may not have been involved, but he’s certainly guilty of putting himself in bad situations. He needs to start hanging out with different people.

    The only way the Elliot investigation takes this long is if they are struggling to get to a pre determined outcome. Whether its a whitewash or a witch hunt I dont know, just that they are clearly not playing it as a straight up ‘discover and report’ because that would have been finished by now. Whatever result they announce you can know that the info they gathered did not support what they wanted and that they had to work it for a while to get to that desired result.

    I agree. And while my opinion of him is not good, like many here I will not be shocked if facts confirm his guilt, we should still all wait for those facts before convicting him on what is a very sketchy report. Not only does the report not convict him, its not too clear that he was even accused of anything either. Just that he was involved ir somehow related to a situation they are looking into.

  19. The league would look a lot better if they just told these recidivists to get lost.

    If a player gets suspended, while already on suspension, they should be automatically and permanently removed from the league.

  20. Smith may or may not have been involved, but he’s certainly guilty of putting himself in bad situations. He needs to start hanging out with different people.

    Maybe. It’s a situation that got reported to the police. Possibly Smith was trying to be a peace-maker here. We just don’t know yet.

    Whole lot of folks here are willing to condemn the man without knowing the facts.

  21. The guy obviously has issues. We can sit and point the finger at him all day, but if he doesn’t want to change, he doesn’t want to change.

    Not everybody in this world is going to put on an act for the public. I’ll at least give him credit for that. As for football wise, he’s a complete liabality. Nobody should sign him.

  22. Smith’s transgressions have always been about substance abuse, never violence against anyone.

    Let the facts come out before everyone brands him a serial killer

  23. Smith’s transgressions have always been about substance abuse, never violence against anyone.

    So being an alcoholic, drug addict wont prevent you from getting a job with the raiders? Good to know.

  24. People LOVE to jump to conclusions, and when doing so really show how uninformed they are. Sad..
    No arrest.. his name was mentioned in the report.. maybe he and his girl came home in the early morning, maybe SHE was a little tippsey , maybe she was LOUD, early in the AM.. Just maybe a neighbor called the police after seeing the big scary man outside and hearing a loud woman… Maybe..

  25. not sure if this is true or not, if it is…not sure what you can say. He’s had so many chances, I am not one to judge this person. He was upset with the 49ers when they released him, he continues on this same patter of abuse. If it is abuse and if it is true, I’ve been saying this many times, this man needs a mentor or…maybe step out of football and do something that will bring notice to abuse and give back to society

  26. There’s a very good chance he got in an argument which escalated and his actions scared his girlfriend enough for her to call police. If nothing else happened other than that: no physical harm to her, nothing damaged, neighbors not disturbed…. I still have to say: Aldon, you’re a moron!
    How could he do ANYTHING that remotely come close to ending his NFL career!? He just had to get to next month! That’s it!
    Aldon Smith must have a 75 IQ. Unbelievable….
