Aldon Smith detained for public intoxication

Getty Images

Aldon Smith isn’t making news on the first day of free agency the way that he should have been.

Via KTVU.com, Smith has been detained by San Francisco police for public intoxication on Thursday morning. The incident occurred after a vehicle in which he was riding collided with an undercover police car. He is expected to be released by police when sober.

The incident comes at a time when Smith was closing in on potential reinstatement after a suspension that began in November 2015.

Last month, Smith boasted that he’s “back and there’s nobody who can stop me.”

There was somebody who can stop Aldon Smith. Curiously, he has the same name.

    On a day of surprising headlines, this one shocks absolutely nobody.

    Great Player but such a dumb person.

    UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    Wow!

  9. tooz56 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:43 PM

    So if your a passenger INSIDE a car, and drank a few too many, you get charged with public intoxication ???

  10. cheapseater says: Mar 9, 2017 4:43 PM

    Sad. Nice to know you, Aldon. Go fix your life, bud. You’ve got a lot of years left to live.

  11. ctiggs says: Mar 9, 2017 4:44 PM

    At this point he is better off to be cut by the raiders and sign a lifetime deal with Anheiser Busch

  12. RandyinRoxbury says: Mar 9, 2017 4:44 PM

    Aldon makes Johnny football look like a boy scout!

  13. r8rsfan says: Mar 9, 2017 4:44 PM

    No more excuses. I don’t care if you’re only the passenger, and we’re stone cold sober. The fact is that you’re incapable of making adult decisions and are not mature enough to play a grown man’s game. Buh-bye Aldon – barely knew ya.

  14. avikesfan says: Mar 9, 2017 4:44 PM

    can’t make this stuff up.

  15. hukdeep says: Mar 9, 2017 4:44 PM

    D.O.N.E.

  16. bighoser says: Mar 9, 2017 4:44 PM

    Well, I guess we can now close the book on this idiot! Million dollar talent and 5 cent head.. or the Black Manziel.

  17. QB Film Room says: Mar 9, 2017 4:45 PM

    Him and Josh Gordon have the same bad luck of continuing to abuse in public etc. Best of luck to Aldon but my goodness

    What an idiot.

  23. ocgunslinger says: Mar 9, 2017 4:45 PM

    I can only think “Stupid is as Stupid does”

  24. paulieorkid says: Mar 9, 2017 4:45 PM

    The mindset of “nobody can stop me” is why Aldon keeps having setbacks. He has to realize that yes, he can be stopped — and the fulcrum on that logical lever are the acts and deeds of Aldon himself.

  25. dirtydrynn27 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:46 PM

    Career Over!!!!

  26. reppster says: Mar 9, 2017 4:46 PM

    Shocking.

  27. thefatlazygamer says: Mar 9, 2017 4:46 PM

    Much like the arrest meter, he is a 0!

    Dude is a walking incident.

  28. jonwill57 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:46 PM

    He was in the car…but he was not driving the car. Arrested for public intoxication…they could arrest thousands before, during and after 49er games.

  29. remizak says: Mar 9, 2017 4:47 PM

    Huh? Being a drunk passenger in a car counts as “public intoxication”?

  30. davefromwork says: Mar 9, 2017 4:47 PM

    Wait … so he was a passenger in a vehicle. That vehicle is involved in a collision, so he steps out of the vehicle, and they slap him with a Public Intoxication?? Granted, he was “detained” and not arrested, but that’s ridiculous.

  31. joetoronto says: Mar 9, 2017 4:47 PM

    Screw him, no more chances.

  32. platinumraider32 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:47 PM

    Well it’s official Raider Nation, we can close the book on Smith.

    The final chapter is complete!

  33. war27 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:47 PM

    Eh, this sounds bad. It also sounds sketchy like the police car might be at fault without the drivers DUI from reading so far.

    Way too odd that at 8:30am he is “drunk in public” He would not be in public if not for the accident, did they expect him to sit in the crashed car?

  34. maiphatdong says: Mar 9, 2017 4:48 PM

    tuuuurd

  35. ivydude81 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:48 PM

    Who’s getting messed up on a Thursday morning besides this clown and Johnny football?

  36. harrisonhits2 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:48 PM

    He must have mouthed off to the cops and gotten into it with them. Other than that if he’d just said he’d been drinking and could he call a cab to get home they wouldn’t have arrested him.

    Am speculating of course but most cops won’t arrest you simply for being drunk unless you’re being obnoxious or driving.

  37. arctantheta says: Mar 9, 2017 4:48 PM

    this sounds dubious.
    more like he was detained for either arguing with a cop, or being aldon smith.

  38. seabrawk12 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:49 PM

    Aldone.

  39. oddte says: Mar 9, 2017 4:49 PM

    This is a BS charge, sorry. You can get hammered drunk as a passenger on an airplane though still, I guess.

  40. cmac2000 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:49 PM

    Born idiot, raiders better cut him, doesnt deserve to play in nfl, a real loser…try and defend this guy, and its not an alcohol problem, its a dumbass problem

  41. judalation says: Mar 9, 2017 4:49 PM

    WHAT? NO WAY… WHAT ARE THE ODDS? Why cant this idiot get the hell out of San Francisco?

    I almost feel sorry for this idiot… he obviously was smart enough to drink and drive… but next time get a better driver…

  42. newmancave2016 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:49 PM

    Is he not allowed to drink alcohol? He wasn’t driving. I’m no fan of this guy but I just cannot see why he would get arrested if he drunk as the passenger of a vehicle.

  43. purplepride11 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:50 PM

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    WHAT A MORON!

  44. riraider says: Mar 9, 2017 4:50 PM

    I said it before, I would not have brought him in.
    Aldon is now all done.

  45. 6thsense10 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:50 PM

    Aldon Smith is an idiot. I’m pretty sure staying away from alcohol was part of the terms of his probation.

    That said…….I didn’t know that the police could detain you for public intoxication even though you were a passenger riding in a car with someone else. If that’s the case a lot of people even those that get designated drivers can be detained.

    I guess the best thing you can say about this situation is at least he wasn’t driving.

  46. BroncosCheatedTheSalaryCap says: Mar 9, 2017 4:51 PM

    Hey, he’s no quitter.

  47. steelerfan63 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:51 PM

    He was just beginning a long road trip to Cincinnati when the accident happened.

  48. droppedinagreasefire says: Mar 9, 2017 4:51 PM

    Oh no. What a shocking surprise. Raider Nayshun, any comment? Isn’t this Reggie’s pet? Good luck with his reinstatement. Another Clown azz the Raiders love.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOO REGGGGGGGGGGGEIE! Commitment to Character!

  49. jhonnyklassik says: Mar 9, 2017 4:51 PM

    It doesnt state rather the driver was drunk or not in this article. So why the fuss. I dont get why he was held. Being a drunk passanger is ground for arrest now? Dwb. What can go wrong will go wrong.

  50. sportnorcal says: Mar 9, 2017 4:51 PM

    Some people just cant get out of their own way, sad to see.

  51. unnamedsources says: Mar 9, 2017 4:52 PM

    wait…so hes not driving?

  52. johndavidbootynflmvp69 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:53 PM

    goodnight, sweet prince

  53. tomtravis76 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:53 PM

    Probably for his own good to get him away from boozing for a few hours, but he could have just been put in a cab and sent home.
    Really unfortunate that there is nobody in his life that can get through to him.

  54. gleamingtherube says: Mar 9, 2017 4:53 PM

    “So if your a passenger INSIDE a car, and drank a few too many, you get charged with public intoxication ???”

    I agree with this sentiment. He had a DD, unless he was combative at the scene, he did nothing wrong.

  55. wib22 says: Mar 9, 2017 4:54 PM

    33.5 sacks in his first two seasons. Hall of fame level talent wasted.

    Sad.

  56. drunkraider says: Mar 9, 2017 4:58 PM

    Done

  57. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Mar 9, 2017 5:00 PM

    Troubled young man

  58. raiddawgz says: Mar 9, 2017 5:02 PM

    Cant fix stupid

  59. maverick2560 says: Mar 9, 2017 5:06 PM

    Boy that is a tough one…I’m not sure that is a legal arrest. If I am still right there is caselaw that if you a passenger in a vehicle that is stopped …you may not even have to provide your name. ( Pa Law)
    That being said ….not good for Smith ..although ..I would be believe that the charges could be dropped or reduced. Not sure what effect that has on his return.

  60. ninerdynasty says: Mar 9, 2017 5:14 PM

    All-Done Smith! what a waste, this guy could’ve been one of the best pass rushers in history. shame.

  61. nyneal says: Mar 9, 2017 5:15 PM

    The guy is a total loser. He should never play in the NFL again!

  62. socal9er says: Mar 9, 2017 5:16 PM

    Wasted talent..

    The guy is a total loser. Why defend him? He’s a piece of garbage and he should never play in the NFL again.

  64. mlhigh says: Mar 9, 2017 5:19 PM

    And here comes Raider Nation. Claiming their bad azz boy did nothing wrong. LMAO! Aldon, kiss your reinstatement goodbye. His head is firmly in Goodell’s guilotine.

  65. raiderston says: Mar 9, 2017 5:21 PM

    He now has a longer probation or even jail time as you cannot drink while you are on probation. Sad but it’s time for my Raiders to get a new pass rusher. Good luck with your life kid.

  66. stinkymcmulligan says: Mar 9, 2017 5:23 PM

    Guy can’t handle his liquor

  67. twmp420 says: Mar 9, 2017 5:26 PM

    Dude at least he wasn’t driving.

  68. sl5150 says: Mar 9, 2017 5:31 PM

    The only time he was really that great on the FB field was when Justin Smith was double and triple teamed on most plays anyway. Not impressed with his game when the Cowboy was injured or retired.
    When he was a 49er EVERYONE crucified the organization for giving to many chance. Well the same holds true for you Raidernation.

  69. jbaxt says: Mar 9, 2017 5:32 PM

    Once a raider, always a… Loser!

    Keep it classy Oakland, or wherever your trail of tears leads you and your “nation”.

  70. elyasm says: Mar 9, 2017 5:55 PM

    I don’t see any reason to condemn the guy based on the facts in the story. He was not driving, so he can be as drunk as he wants to be. If mouthing off was what got him arrested, so be it, but I’m not just going to assume that was the case.

  71. beachsidejames says: Mar 9, 2017 5:56 PM

    Talk about bad luck. Not funny for him today but someday hopefully he can look back at this an laugh.

  72. jayniner says: Mar 9, 2017 6:05 PM

    If the driver was intoxicated and Smith knew it, by law, he is culpable and in violation of his probation.

    Don’t ask he how I know this….

    more like he was detained for either arguing with a cop, or being aldon smith.
    =====================

    Or as a condition of his previous release he agreed to zero tolerance

  74. jvw1982 says: Mar 9, 2017 6:23 PM

    What are the chances that you hit a under cover cop car while a passenger in a car? This guy needs help and fast, him and Johnny Manziel have the same disease….

  75. twoteamsforlosangeles says: Mar 9, 2017 6:32 PM

    He should co-write a book with Randy Gregory, Justin Blackmon and Josh Gordon titled “100 ways to waste an NFL career”

    ==============================
    I am not a Smith fan, but I agree with you. If he was simply a passenger and did not do anything after the accident, then he should not be in any trouble. It appears he did what people always say to do….get a ride if you are inebriated.

  77. motsuret06 says: Mar 9, 2017 6:49 PM

    HUGE BUST!

  78. williamwallacewouldhavebeenaraider says: Mar 9, 2017 6:52 PM

    I would bet a large sum of money that Aldon Smiths I.Q is no higher than 65 easily

    ———————————-
    When the driver of your vehicle is also intoxicated and arrested for it? Fairly high.

  80. keithdylan says: Mar 9, 2017 7:03 PM

    If every time I was buzzed and a passenger in a car I got arrested, I would have a record a mile long. In the grand scheme of things this seems like a big nothing burger.

  81. dsheik says: Mar 9, 2017 7:04 PM

    This incident alone isnt that big a deal. intoxicated passenger.
    The guy just doesnt get it. Hes totally oblivious to the reality of how close he is to never playing another down in the NFL. Hes basically on a zero tolerance program and yet within a month he finds himself in a domestic dispute where the police are called and nowhes taken in for public intox after the vehicle hes in hits a police cruiser. Trouble doesnt just find people at this rate unless you put yourself out there for it to.

  82. wallyraider says: Mar 9, 2017 8:33 PM

    That’s a wrap(career)

  83. raiderdave0109 says: Mar 9, 2017 9:45 PM

    In the end, Aldon Smith stopped Aldon Smith.

  84. radrntn says: Mar 10, 2017 1:26 PM

    This time he was charged with nothing, and has been found guilty of what over the years? Santa Clara DA is still just waiting to see if they can charge him for opening his car door and nicking the car that was parked next him. Good luck, and now the police detains him for what?

    Alson needs to get a better PR guy. He need to start doing stuff in the community , and get the media covering that stuff instead of this stuff. Once again its sad the employer can not help its employee. NFLPA agreed to that?
