Aldon Smith turns himself into police on domestic violence charges

Smith, who had reportedly checked himself into a rehabilitation facility, was released by the Raiders on Monday afternoon. Police said Smith fled his San Francisco home before officers arrived.

San Francisco Police had obtained a warrant for his arrest Monday in connection with Saturday's incident.

Also on Tuesday, TMZ Sports reported that Smith's struggle with alcohol became so bad recently that "he was drinking every single day" and people close to him are concerned that "he'll drink himself to death if he continues down this road".

He is now facing misdemeanor charges of willful infliction of corporal injury, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism (less than $400).


While TMZ did not mention the woman's name in its latest report, the gossip site revealed about a week ago that Smith had proposed to his girlfriend Shawna McKnight.

I wish the best for Aldon. She told TMZ.com that her family brought Smith to rehab. "I'm anxious for his safety", an insider told TMZ Sports. "I cannot comment on the altercation but I can tell you I love him and so happy he turned to my family who considers him family and hopefully he gets the help he truly needs", she said. KTVU said the dispatch call by police stated the "suspect threw her around the room, bit her on the wrist and climbed out the window". In August 2015, he was arrested for an alleged hit-and-run, prompting his release from the San Francisco 49ers. The 28-year-old's application to the National Football League commissioner for reinstatement was initially denied in 2016 and is still pending.

Smith missed the entire 2016 and 2017 seasons while serving a suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and a number of other things.
