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