Once seen as one of football’s top young stars, former Missouri defensive end Aldon Smith has been in constant trouble since those halcyon days. On Thursday, those troubles continued, as a San Francisco TV station reported that Smith was arrested and detained once again:

According to the report, Smith was a passenger in a car that collided with a police vehicle. Smith was reportedly intoxicated and was detained on a public intoxication charge.
Smith was hoping to be reinstated by the NFL this month after serving a lengthy suspension for multiple legal issues and violations of the league’s substance abuse policies. There is no word at this time how this latest incident will impact that potential reinstatement.
