Arrest warrant issued for Pro-Bowl Oakland Raider Aldon Smith

07 March 2018

He left County jail, rushing to a waiting auto, after posting his $30,000 bail. Efforts to speak to him or his lawyer were not immediately successful.

Smith had checked into a rehab facility prior to his release from the Raiders, TMZ Sports reported.

Former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio took to Twitter on Monday, chiding the NFL's rules limiting or eliminating team contact with players serving suspensions.

Per NBC Bay Area's John Zuchelli and Brendan Weber, police were searching for Smith on Saturday after he fled his house following an alleged domestic violence incident.

A spokesman for the San Francisco County District Attorney's Office said Smith will be arraigned Monday. She reported to a police dispatcher about 8:30 p.m. that Smith was beating her at her residence in the 600 block of Bush Street.

Smith's fiancée told the gossip website that her parents drove him to the rehab clinic. "The suspect threw her around the room".

Smith was booked Tuesday afternoon in San Francisco and was being held on $30,000 bond on misdemeanor charges of willful infliction of corporal injury, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism (less than $400).

He had been on the suspended list since late 2015 for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse.

Two days later, Smith resurfaced when he turned himself into a San Francisco jail on Tuesday, according to Evan Sernoffsky of the San Francisco Chronicle. He recorded 44 sacks in 50 games with the 49ers before registering 3.5 in nine contests (seven starts) with Oakland in 2015. But he hasn't played since 2015, when the National Football League levied a one-year suspension on him with detailed requirements to achieve reinstatement.
