San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith is one of the NFL's most talented players, but he's quickly becoming just as well known for the trouble he's geting into off the field.
Smith was detained at Los Angeles International Airport, according to numerous reports including the Sacramento Bee, after being uncooperative with authorites and indicating he had a bomb. The 49ers said they were aware of the incident with Smith. TMZ published a video of police taking Smith away from the gate.
Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reported the LAPD booked Smith on a violation of California Penal Code 148.1(a), which is a false report of a bomb threat. Inman reported that Smith was released on $20,000 bail.
"We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in the statement, via the Bee. "As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment."
