For former NFL forward, Aldon Smith, playing football again is no longer a consideration. Staying out of police custody has become a much more pressing challenge.
Through TMZ, the seventh pick in the 2011 draft was arrested on Friday for violating the terms of its electronic monitoring. He currently uses both an electronic monitoring device, along with a device that reveals alcohol in sweat.
Smith, who has been arrested for violating the terms of an order of protection arising out of an arrest for domestic violence and had a warrant issued for his arrest after failing to appear at the court hearing, was jailed once with a bail of $ 500,000. Public records indicate that he is currently incarcerated, before a court hearing on April 11.
The list of pending charges against Smith now includes three separate charges of contempt of court.
Smith played for the last time in the NFL in 2015, before the league implemented a permanent banishment with the ability to request reinstatement after one year. It's a dramatic downfall for a player who had 42 sacks in his first 43 regular-season games.
