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.

Golden Nuggets: Gameday Eve

Sep 13 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: ninersnation

Saturday, September 13, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Good morning everyone. Yesterday, much like every other day of this week, was a bad one for the NFL. Adrian Peterson was the latest star to be caught in the middle of the law. This time for child abuse. As much as I would love to go off on a tangent about that, the non football incidents since the Superbowl, both fro ...

Sep 12 2014 6:37pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The NFL and NFLPA finally have a new drug policy. We have some of the key changes, and why it will not impact Aldon Smith's suspension. The NFL and NFLPA agreed on a new drug policy, and it will have an immediate impact on some players. Wide receiver Wes Welker and cornerback Orlando Scandrick, who were both suspended for use of MDMA, are likely to be reinstated in time for Sunday's games. One player who ...

49ers-Bears preview: Focusing on read option, and NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith absences

Sep 12 2014 3:16pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The 49ers and Bears square off on Sunday, so it's time for a big, fat preview of the key storylines. We focus on the read option and dealing with the loss of NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith. There’s a good chance than when you think of San Francisco 49ers and the Chicago Bears, the first thing that comes to mind is defense. For the Bears, that defense-first identity is something that extends back as far as the franchise as bee ...

Vic Fangio, Greg Roman spoke with media about 49ers-Bears

Sep 11 2014 9:15pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

We've got transcripts following press conferences by San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. They discussed Sunday's Bears game. We'll go into some of the details a bit more tomorrow, but for now, I thought I'd post the transcripts for 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. I have been posting them separately, but given how different they can be in the information they provide ...

Since the Ted Robinson thing is probably not something we want to end the night with, how about a Jim Harbaugh press conference transcript? Try to contain your excitement! Did DB Jimmie Ward sustain a concussion Sunday? "No. Doctors said that he did not. His helmet got knocked off and he came to the sideline and they went through the testing and determined he that he had not sustained a concussion." How did you think he did in his first game? "Jimmie? Think h ...

Offensive Line Problems Could Sink the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014

Sep 10 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Even as the Andy Reid era gave way to the Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia, the Eagles knew they had one of the most reliable offensive lines in football. That hasn't changed. Left tackle Jason Peters is a three-time All-Pro, left guard Evan Mathis is an advanced stats superstar coming off an All-Pro season himself, center Jason Kelce was graded by Pro Football Focus (subscription required) as the best player in football at that position last season, right guard Todd Herremans is ...

San Francisco 49ers: How to Stop Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery

Sep 9 2014 11:25pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The last time the San Francisco 49ers took on the Chicago Bears, in 2012, the Bears were a very different team.  Jay Cutler missed the game after suffering a concussion the week before, leaving Jason Campbell starting in his place.  Alshon Jeffery was a reserve receiver behind Devin Hester.  The head coach was Lovie Smith, who has since been sent off to Tampa Bay. What the Bears did still have, of course, was Brandon Marshall, and therein lies the key to shutting ...

Despite Decent Showing in Week 1 Loss, Cowboys Defense Has Long Way to Go

Sep 7 2014 8:33pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

This much can't be disputed: The Dallas Cowboys are in big trouble. They looked utterly incompetent to kick off the season Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, falling behind 28-3 by halftime before putting lipstick on a pig with a pair of second-half touchdowns.  What's most shocking, though, is the fact that Sunday's shoddy performance from the offense and—despite insurmountable obstacles—a half-decent showing from the D indicates that defensive un ...
