Report: Aldon Smith was drinking at scene of alleged assault

The 49ers have already dealt with Ray McDonald for his part in a new sexual assault investigation.

But now they may have a bigger problem to deal with.

Part of an affidavit outlining allegations against McDonald includes a section in which the victim said she spent the day drinking with McDonald and outside linebacker Aldon Smith.

That’s only a problem as it pertains to Smith’s suspension for a 2013 DUI, for which he’s still on probation.

According to Tracey Kaplan of the San Jose Mercury News, the woman claimed McDonald sexually assaulted her at his home after she passed out by his pool. But she them claimed to have stayed at the house, drinking with Smith and McDonald.

Police have also seized home surveillance cameras and McDonald’s cell phone as part of their investigation.

While the 49ers finally had a moment of clarity and cut McDonald (shortly after being eliminated from the playoffs), they’ve stood firm by Smith throughout a series of transgressions.

There was some dispute at the time of Smith’s reinstatement that he hadn’t fulfilled his counseling requirements.

But if police place him at the scene of a crime drinking, it will put the 49ers in the uncomfortable position of making more excuses for a star after making an example of McDonald.

  1. As if the Santa Clara cops would bring in one of their best buds and employers for a mere probation violation

  2. Wasn’t this woman reportedly pregnant?
    And she spent the day drinking?
    I don’t have any conclusions, but, wow!

  3. These guys get involved in so many assault cases that I get them confused. I was thinking about the first case.

  4. Aldon just doesn’t appreciate the MULTIPLE chances he’s gotten! Why would he change? No reprucutions from 49ers!

  5. She spent the rest of the day, Sunday, December 14th drinking with Ray and Aldon at Ray’s house. Thats crazy?! Cause I could have sworn last Sunday I was watching Ray and Aldon play a football game at 1:30 in the afternoon AT SEATTLE!!! ANYONE?!

  6. Time for the NFL to really make an example of him. Maybe a two or three suspension without pay and no contact with any team.

  7. There’s a big difference between drinking problems and violence against women

    But don’t be objective and let that interrupt your narrative

    And why should the 49ers have released Ray when he wasn’t even charged?

    Let’s start firing everyone the second someone makes an accuasation

    They had to release him the second time because of the massive PR hit he would have caused the team, not because he is guilty or innocent

  8. I maybe in denial, but this story seems to have an air of incredibility to it. Girls seems to be making stuff up. But if it turns out to be true, Aldon will be cut, no doubt about it.

    @morecommonsensethanyou:
    The story says they spent all day MONDAY drinking.

    They updated it. 2 hours ago, it said they spent all Sunday drinking and the pair met on December 13th.

  11. 49ers are a classless organization. They refused to cut McDonald for domestic violence when the rest of the league was cutting culprits amidst the Ray Rice video.

    They had to wait until they were out of the playoffs and a new charge of rape for McDonald before they thought about cutting him.

    Trash franchise. Time to jump back on the Raiders bandwagon Santa Clara’s.

    U had a few good years 2011-2013. RIP bandwagon fans

    It would be a courtesy not to confuse San Francisco’s Faithful fanbase for Seattle’s bandwagon 2012th man. You know, the town the NBA left and NHL refuses to come to because of the fickle posers who only show up when they win. Go back to watching soccer you long time Sounder fans.

  13. I’m reading the initial details of this woman’s story and seems a bit odd…..

    “The woman, who claims McDonald sexually assaulted her, told police the alleged attack occurred after she fell by the pool and hit her head on the ground, according to the affidavit. She said she had been out drinking with friends and ended up at McDonald’s house.”

    Sounds like she stayed around and hung out with McDonald the next day at his house.

    More details will come out but if this is a made up story then this woman should be put in jail. Obviously if it’s a legit story and McDonald is convicted then he will be the one behind bars.

  14. Seattle….. nobody knew you had an NFL team until three years ago. Until you starting winning you had fewer fans at road games than any other team in the NFL. Now you are showing up? You are so weak with your 12th man garbage. A bunch of fat, pasty, white guys who paint their faces and wear beads? Really? Niners fans show up on the road win or lose you freaking clowns. Oh and bye the way until you get an NBA or NHL team you are still a minor league town. Soccer doesn’t count!

  15. NFLGiant come on make sense. 53 players times 24 hours a day and times 365 days a year. Harbaugh is their coach not their “every minute” babysitter. If Smith was drinking while on DUI probation it’s his fault nobody elses. Although most NFL players have been educated through some college. They are not taught common sense or morals. And too many grow physically but because of their pampered life they think they can do anything they want.

  16. @pantherpro: “Niners fans show up on the road win or lose”…???
    Really??? Niners fans must be ALWAYS on the road then, because the last 3 niners home games I watched, the stadium was less than 50% full.
    Great road fans but don’t give a damn when they play at home, I suppose.

  17. I’m amazed, amazed I tell you that Ray and Aldon are followed around by lying women and large, mobile bottles of alcohol – both who entrap their innocence into a web of lies and deceit. And so often. Why does it happen to these two model citizens?

  18. And Greg Hardy has one Domestic issue and they put him on the exempt list for the whole season, this guy has been in trouble every since he came into league and they still have not given him a life time ban?

  19. Baalke always put a premium on tough, athletic guys. Unfortunately his evaluation stopped before the neck upwards. He better change or he will follow Harbaugh out the door.

  20. Makes sense in retrospect. It was after losing to Seattle last year that he had his DUI. He’s at risk after a loss and nobody in the organization is doing a thing about it, preventative or otherwise.

  21. Seattle….. nobody knew you had an NFL team until three years ago. Until you starting winning you had fewer fans at road games than any other team in the NFL. Now you are showing up? You are so weak with your 12th man garbage. A bunch of fat, pasty, white guys who paint their faces and wear beads? Really? Niners fans show up on the road win or lose you freaking clowns. Oh and bye the way until you get an NBA or NHL team you are still a minor league town. Soccer doesn’t count!
