Aldon Smith turns himself in to authorities


Aldon Smith surrendered to Santa Clara County authorities Tuesday night on the felony weapons charges he’s been facing relating to that disastrous house party last year that ended with two people shot and Smith stabbed. Shortly after he turned himself in, Smith was released on $75,000 bond.

More from NBC Bay Area:

Self-surrendering was part of the agreement that Smith made with Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen when he was charged with possessing illegal assault weapons on Oct. 9. Smith was in rehab at the time because of his September DUI arrest in San Jose.

The agreement was that Smith would turn himself in by the end of the month.

It’s unclear if this now means Smith has checked out of the treatment center where he’s been rehabbing a suspected substance abuse problem. Smith now has two court dates next month for the weapons charges, as well as charges related to the DUI arrest last month that led to his checking into rehab. He’s still on an indefinite leave of absence from the 49ers.
