Aldon smith involved in domestic violence incident, fled scene before police arrived

The Mercury News, citing dispatch audio, reported that the alleged victim said Smith bit her wrists and may have fled in a black Range Rover.

Smith, who rose to fame as a Pro Bowl pass rusher for the 49ers before multiple off-field incidents led to his release and subsequent signing with Oakland in 2015, has had numerous off-field incidents the past four years and is still serving an National Football League suspension. The 49ers selected him in the first round (No. 7 overall) of the 2011 draft. Prosecutors agreed to charges that Smith drove under the influence in that incident. After being released by the 49ers in 2014, the Raiders took a flier and stayed the course for three seasons, watching Smith suit up for nine total contests. But the off-field issues started mounting the following season when he missed five games to undergo treatment at an inpatient facility following a DUI arrest. No charges were filed in that incident. But the NFL, in reaction to his numerous brushes with the law and the league's substance abuse policy, suspended Smith for a year on November 17, 2015, and has yet to reinstate him. San Francisco then released him in August 2015 following his fifth run-in with the law regarding another drunken driving arrest.

Smith has a long legal record. At that time, Smith conducted a weird interview with the media following an incident last March 9.

Smith, who was playing on a one-year deal with the Raiders when he was suspended, re-signed with the Raiders in 2016 but has yet to be cleared to return to the league.
