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.

Nick Foles Must Play Better for Eagles Offense to Get Back on Track

Sep 29 2014 1:38am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Nick Foles is about to become a case study in quarterbacks getting all of the glory when their team wins and shouldering all of the blame in a loss. The Philadelphia Eagles were down three offensive lineman on Sunday. Foles was hurried on a sizeable number of dropbacks. There was no semblance of a rushing attack to help ease the pressure on the passer. Foles has been battered and bruised behind his makeshift protection, the hits piling up and undoub ...

How the 49ers Can Replicate Their Defensive Success Against the Eagles

Sep 28 2014 11:27pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's not often a team is dominated so thoroughly that the opposition maintains possession of the ball for nearly three full quarters. It's not often that an offense with one of the league's best running backs is held to only 22 rushing yards. And we should start checking if certain farm animals have learned to fly when a Chip Kelly offense doesn't take a snap in opposing territory until the 4:57 mark of the fourth quarter, earning only 11 ...

It's always a good day when the 49ers defense takes care of business

Sep 28 2014 11:02pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers defense has been under scrutiny with NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith and Glenn Dorsey all sidelined. They have had some big moments, but a little bit of inconsistency at times. On Sunday, against the Philadelphia Eagles, the defense took care of business. They shut down a potent Eagles attack, and put the 49ers in position to get back to .500. That is reason enough for this to be a good ...
