Aldon Smith arrested yet again

For former NFL pass rusher Aldon Smith, playing football again seems to be no longer a consideration. Staying out of police custody has become the far more pressing challenge.

Via TMZ, the seventh pick in the 2011 draft was arrested on Friday night for violating the terms of his electronic monitoring. He currently wears both an electronic monitoring device, along with a device that reveals alcohol in sweat.

Smith, who has been arrested for violating the terms of a protective order arising from a domestic violence arrest and who had a bench warrant issued for his arrest after failing to appear at hearing in court, was jailed this time around with bail of $500,000. Public records indicate that he currently remains incarcerated, in advance of an April 11 court hearing.

The list of pending charges against Smith now includes three separate counts of contempt of court.

Smith last played in the NFL in 2015, before the league implemented a permanent banishment with the ability to apply for reinstatement after a year. It’s a dramatic fall for a player who had 42 sacks in his first 43 regular-season games.

  1. why is someone this unstable allowed to even
    be out of jail right now? he is a clear threat and with suxh lax gun laws with assault weapons easier to buy than adult toys (in some states), lock him up.

  2. People continually-underestimate the power of Alcohol (or any other addictive substance/behavior).

    Obviously this man’s mind is seriously impaired, and Sobriety will be a lifelong struggle.

    He’s done with the NFL – he needs to forget about football, go through detox and hopefully (possibly/maybe) clean up.

  3. P.S. – For the rest of us with kids, please teach that Success does not just require Aptitude, but also Attitude.

    Aldon had all the skill in the world to be great, but sadly lacking the life tools to Achieve.

  4. This is what happens when you’re a big football star and are enabled your entire life. Chances are the people around him are saying he’s just misunderstood and other enabling things. This guy won’t get it until he finds himself behind bars for life. Then he’ll want people to feel sorry for him.

  5. Wasted talent. He could’ve been one of the all time greats. There was no stopping this dawg from eating when he was hungry.
    Too bad he was “thirsty” more than hungry.
    Smh

  6. If we can’t get back the arrest meter from years past can we at least get an Aldon Smith Arrest meter located in the upper right hand corner?

  7. Tylawpick6 you don’t even know what an assault weapon is.
    ——
    I agree, he should’ve just said guns. They’re all easy to get. But he does have a point…especially here in the Bible belt where guns and god go together like pb&j…yet adult book stores are banned inside city limits.

  8. Throw him in prison. He’s a menace to society. But that won’t happen until he beats the living hell out of some woman. Then the public will be saying “why wasn’t he in prison before this” ??

  9. Bring back arrest tracker, but let us set a few options: Show it or not, Players only, players and coaches, all NFL employees.

    Add a re-arrest tracker. Maybe that would make it to 100 days.

    Why do Liberals believe that tougher gun laws will prevent shootings? How do you explain Chicago….strongest gun laws in the country….most daily shootings in the country…

  11. I read this headline and started laughing. Then I realized that this crap is comical but NOT a laughing matter. Something needs to be done with this guy.

  12. tylawspick6 was correct to say assault weapons and not guns.

    Military assault weapons are the problem.

    The gun toting NRA snowflake cowards can’t even keep their own argument straight.

    Military assault weapons have no purpose other than to kill in high numbers.

    I thought the purpose of owning a gun was for defense, not assault or offensive purposes.

    NRA snowflakes don’t know which way is up.

  13. We all know Smith is unbalanced, right? But it wasn’t too long ago that a lot of us were on here dogging Roger Goodell for not immediately reinstating him into the league. That’s one where we need to have a serious look in the mirror and get a hold of our blind hate. It’s unhealthy, and leads to unbalanced thinking on our part.

  14. I like this kid.
    Most bad boys get busted once a year. Smith gets busted many times a year, which is far more exciting.

    Do X and get punished?
    You did X now the punishment is more severe?
    What, you here again for the third time?
    Now he’s incarcerated with a bond of 500K? Nice job sport. Have fun.

    There is so much wrong with this statement. And as of right now it received 58 likes? In what used to be America, everyone should receive due process. What was his monitor violation? Maybe you are right and it was very bad, but you don’t know. But, you would feel safer if he or anyone else didn’t have the ability to buy guns. So, he should be locked up. These are foolish and non American ideals. Good for the other 58, too!
    So, you know as much as me and you want him locked up? First of all

    Last time I checked I can’t buy any military “assault” weapons. But I can buy a semi automatic .223 rifle with a pistol grip.

  17. Son, find help. Ditch your friends. Ditch the girlfriend. Leave your family. Find help far far FAR from anything you know. What you think you know is not working.

    I have a semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun. You know, Joe Biden’s favorite weapon for self defense. A quick search online shows me several stock options, including pistol grips. Does that fit the description of an assault weapon also?

  19. This has gone way past a mistake. It looks more like he has a mental issue (he’s nuts) or just has a total disregard for the law – thinks he can do whatever he wants.

  20. Come on, the guy’s mentally ill and either not receiving or refusing the medical and psychiatric help he needs. Doesn’t help that there’s no NFL structure apparently in place to help him. Just a sad deal – you could see this downward spiral coming for a couple years.

    Needs counseling and some serious help from NFL league.

    He’s no longer an NFL player. Why is he the league’s problem?

    This is a misleading NRA talking point. Chicago’s 2016 shooting rate was an outlier.
    Gun laws DO make a difference. Other western style democracies have stricter gun laws than we Americans would put up with, and virtually no shootings.

    You know where gun laws are tough in the US?
    Massachusetts
    You know where there are virtually no shootings?
    Massachusetts
    There is a very high correlation between the strength of state gun laws and the rates of shootings.

  23. I’m against aldon because of comeback stories & it’s altering societal view(s) on P.O.S.’s.

    You have more gun crimes in cities with high African American populations. Massachusetts is only 6% African-American, Chicago is 32% African American, Detroit is 82.7% African American and is #1 in violent crime, Oakland is #2 in violent crime and is 28% African American and Flint, MI is #3 and is 56.6% African American. Sad but true….

    You’ve missed the point. High violent crime areas are also high poverty areas and lack of opportunity areas. Unfortunately, based on the racist history of America, African Americans do not have the same opportunities as white Americans do and the system itself has a negative racial bias towards African Americans. If African Americans actually had equal opportunities to succeed, less would be desperate enough to resort to violent decisions.
