Raiders release Aldon Smith after alleged domestic violence incident

Raiders release Aldon Smith after alleged domestic violence incident

Aldon Smith, who reportedly was involved in a domestic violence incident with his fiancee over the weekend, was released by the Raiders on Monday afternoon.

The latest of those issues came on Saturday, when the San Francisco Police Department issue a statement saying they were in search of Smith, who "fled the scene" of reported domestic violence. The incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. Saturday and the statement encouraged Smith to turn himself in by reaching out to a 24-hour operations center for the SFPD's special victims unit.

Smith turns 29 in September, but has yet to begin his sixth season in the National Football League due to suspensions for multiple substance abuse incidents. The team can have no contact with Smith, who has continued to have legal problems. The woman said Smith called her parents after the incident and they took the 28-year-old to rehab. She said the two had only been dating for about four months.

"I'm scared for his life with his addiction", McKnight said to TMZ.

"I wish the best for Aldon". He remains suspended by the league.

"I can tell you this".

Smith, a first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2011 and a first-team All Pro in 2012, has had numerous run-ins with the law.

He signed with Oakland just before the start of the 2015 season and had 3½ sacks in nine games before being suspended again for at least one year.

There were three DUI allegations, a hit-and-run vandalism charge, illegal possession of an assault weapon and he was accused of making bomb threats at the Los Angeles airport.
