Aldon Smith Arrested: San Francisco 49ers Release Official Statement

San Francisco 49ers defensive end and potential Rookie of the Year Aldon Smith was arrested in Miami on Saturday morning on a charge of driving while intoxicated. On Saturday afternoon, the 49ers released their official statement regarding the incident.

The 49ers are aware of the recent matter involving Aldon Smith. We take these issues very seriously, but will reserve further comment at this time, as this is an ongoing legal matter. The 49ers will continue to gather the facts and monitor the developments closely.

Smith will likely need to undergo counseling as part of the NFL mandates regarding offenses of this kind. He will also likely be fined and faces the possibility of a suspension, although that last action is unlikely. Hopefully the rookie will learn a very big lesson now and not less this type of thing happen again.
