Fooch's update: The Santa Clara police tweeted that it is in fact DUI related.
From the PIO: SCPD arrested Aldon Smith last night for Hit&Run, DUI, and vandalism. A press release will be provided later this morning.— Santa Clara Police (@SantaClaraPD) August 7, 2015
Well, crap. Aldon Smith was arrested Thursday evening and booked into Santa Clara County Jail Thursday evening, with bail set at $26,000. There is no official word on why he was arrested. Twitter is abuzz with rumors, but we'll wait and see what he is officially charged with in the very near future.
Whatever the case, this is not good for Aldon Smith or his future with the San Francisco 49ers. We'll keep an eye out for specifics from the police or DA's office, but in the meantime, we just have to wait and see what exactly has happened with him.The 49ers had Thursday off and were scheduled to return to practice on Friday. There is media availability at 11:30 a.m. today, but I would think this might require something sooner from the team.
Earlier this year, Smith converted his option year salary into non-guaranteed roster bonuses and incentives, as well as a smaller base salary.
