Aldon Smith

Smith left a San Francisco resident before police arrived and tended to the victim, who suffered non-life threatening injuries. "And I'm scared for his life with his addiction", Shawna McKnight told He remains suspended by the NFL. Smith fled the scene prior to the police's arrival to investigate the incident.

Police later confirmed that the visit came after a false report that Smith had returned to the building, one of several that authorities had received over the course of the day.

On Sunday, San Francisco police named Smith a suspect in a domestic violence incident that happened on Saturday night. "I cannot comment on the altercation, but I can tell you I love him and (am) so happy he turned to my family, who considers him family". "He complied. They went and got him".

He hasn't played since those nine games with Oakland.

It has been a hard path for Smith over the last few years since being indefinitely suspended from the National Football League due to violating the substance-abuse policy. "The suspect threw her around the room, bit her on the wrist, then climbed out the window", the 911 dispatcher said.

You can also hear talk of how Smith allegedly drank two bottles of tequila. 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. Smith, still technically a member of the Oakland Raiders, has been suspended since November 2015 due to a hit-and-run that took place in August 2015.

Smith applied for reinstatement, which was initially denied in 2016.
