San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested on Friday morning for hit and run, DUI, and vandalism on Thursday night, according to the Santa Clara Police Department has now offered up those details.
A press release is expected later this morning.
Smith has been arrested for a DUI twice before and went to rehab after his second arrest in September 2013, which required him to five miss games during the 2013 season. Smith also missed nine more games while serving a suspension for off-field trouble last season.
Chances are, if the charges stick, Smith will be suspended again - probably for a whole season. His career with the 49ers will also likely be done as well.
The 49ers still have enough talent to win nine games, but losing Aldon Smith to some suspension could doom them to a losing sesaon— John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) August 7, 2015

This arrest will have Roger Goodell considering a suspension of Aldon, but you wonder if the team will act first and suspend him.— John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) August 7, 2015
