Aldon Smith signed with the Seahawks last week, but his availability for the coming season could be impacted by a criminal case in Louisiana.

Travers Mackel of WDSU shares a bulletin from St. Bernard Parish Sheriff James Pohlmann stating that Smith is wanted for second degree battery. Smith allegedly committed that battery during an incident at the French Press Coffee House in Chalmette.

Mackel adds that law enforcement leaders say there is video evidence of the incident.

The bulletin adds that Smith was last seen in a white Nissan sedan and asks that anyone with knowledge of Smith’s whereabouts contact the Sheriff’s office.

Smith spent last season with the Cowboys and saw his first NFL action since legal troubles and a suspension derailed his career in 2015.
