San Francisco police have issued an arrest warrant for former Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith after alleged domestic violence incident this weekend.

According to Jon Becker and Matthias Gafni of the San Jose Mercury News, Smith is being charged with domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism. All four counts are misdemeanor offenses.

Smith is alleged to have bit the wrists of the victim and fled the scene, leaving through a window. The victim has non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Smith reportedly checked into a rehab facility on Monday following the incident this weekend. After spending over a year on the Raiders reserve/suspended list, the team released him after the latest in a long list of foul-ups.

  1. Domestic violence being a misdemeanor just goes to show that the U.S Courts are just as clueless as Gooddell and anyone else who dished out punishments (like troy vincent for example).

    There are people in prison for years and sometimes even life for smoking, selling, or possessing weed while it continues to get legalized all over the country, but some jackass can beat his girlfriend up and only get a misdemeanor.

    It’s all a huge joke

  2. Aldon gets arrested while Jonathan Martin goes free? Both are wrong but why does Martin get the “Get out of Jail Free” card? Still trying to figure out how a NFL starting guard can be bullied.

  3. The funny thing is that this guy had a rap sheet a mile long, was finally released by 49ers, and Boom, was immediately signed by the Raiders. Did they think their environment would turn Smith around? There is always at least 12 chances for pro athletes. You and I have none.

  4. The Patriots or Cowboys will reach out to him, and goodell reinstate him for the two that they try to act as if they don’t get along.

  5. How do you bite someone’s wrists? Unless maybe they’re riding your back / trying to choke you? Then he locked them in a room and busted a window to get out? He’s probably a POS but I’m curious what happened.
