Former Mizzou defensive lineman Aldon Smith hasn’t been able to stay out of trouble.
After reports broke this week of Smith being allegedly involved in a domestic violence incident, the Oakland Raiders released him on Monday afternoon.
But now he has bigger problems. TMZ is reporting Smith now has a warrant out for his arrest following the same alleged domestic violence incident.
According to the report, the alleged victim is his fiancée, who said Smith fled from the scene after the incident allegedly took place. TMZ previously reported that Smith checked into rehab after the alleged incident.
“‘The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries,’ according to a police statement provided to the San Jose Mercury-News. ‘The suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival and was identified as professional football player Aldon Smith, a 28-year-old Oakland resident.’”
Smith has played for the San Fransisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders. Despite being a Pro Bowl-level pass rusher, Smith was released by the 49ers because of repeated legal issues. He played in nine games for the Raiders in 2015 before being suspended by the NFL for one year. He has not been reinstated.
In his career, Smith recorded 47.5 sacks and 141 total tackles. Those numbers include 19.5 sacks in his second season with the 49ers, which earned him an All-Pro selection. He also picked off a pass and forced 3 fumbles that season.
Smith was a first-round pick out of Missouri in the 2011 NFL Draft.
