San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was slapped with three felony weapons assault charges on Wednesday.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was slapped with three felony weapons assault charges on Wednesday.

Thisincludes "two rifles he allegedly purchased a day before a road game in 2011 during his rookie season," per Henry K. Lee of SFGate.com.  

According to Tony Kovaleski of NBC Bay Area, the said rifles were bought in Arizona in December of that year.

Kovaleski cites Atty. Jeff Rosen who says some assault weapons "cannot be leagally bought in in Arizona by California residents or possessed in California at all." 

In addition, Smith was also charged with misdemeanor drunken driving when he crashed his car into a tree in a residential area in San Jose, Ca. on Sept. 20.

His blood-alcohol content was .15. The state limit in California is .08.   

For this particular misdemeanor, the 24-year-old Smith faces up to six months in jail, per the San Jose Mercury News

Lee points out that the three felony weapons assault charges are traced to a party held at his house in San Jose on June 29, 2012 where he was stabbed and two people were shot. 

If convicted, Smith, who is on indefinite leave of absence from the 49ers, faces a sentence which ranges from no time in custody to four years and four months in prison.

He is expected to surrender to authorities later this month. 

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said the team is aware of Smith's situation and didn't expound any further. 

"We've been aware of the incident. We're all accountable for our actions, good and bad. There's a process, due process, that will take place. I don't feel any need to comment further on it." 

Prior to his arrest, Smith registered 14 tackles and 4.5 sacks in three games in the 2013 NFL season, per ESPN stats.

What to Expect from Frank Gore, 49ers Offense in Week 9

Oct 30 2014 7:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers entered their bye coming off of a demoralizing loss to the Denver Broncos. Now, the 49ers are hopefully ready to pick up the pieces, and it starts with this roster getting healthy.  Will we see Glenn Dorsey, NaVorro Bowman or even Aldon Smith return to the lineup? Probably not, but the 49ers have some key pieces returning, including All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis.  We all know the defense will ...

Oct 28 2014 11:07pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Don’t look now, but the San Francisco 49ers are beginning to get back reinforcements. The 49ers team that last took the field against the Denver Broncos was a shadow of its full strength.  Missing from the starting lineup were Mike Iupati, Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith, Glenn Dorsey, Chris Culliver and Jimmie Ward.  It’s little surprise, then, that they were dominated by the best team in the NFL. But, with a week off from the bye, these players, as well as other members of what ...
