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.

Then again, the inconsistency of this league could lead to upsets in any of the games we ...

San Francisco 49ers: A Mistake-Free Performance Beats the Kansas City Chiefs

Oct 5 2014 11:13pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers’ 22-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs was a refreshing one, considering some of the struggles the 49ers have had over the course of this season. Issues with turnovers? The 49ers didn’t turn the ball over once against the Chiefs and forced Alex Smith to throw his first road interception in 267 attempts to clinch the game. Penalty problems? The 49ers only had two accepted penalties for 10 yards, neither in particularly high-leverage situations. The costliest penalty cam ...

At the quarter mark, these are your San Francisco 49ers

Oct 2 2014 4:15pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The 49ers are 2-2, but there is reason to think that this 49ers team isn't too different from teams past. The San Francisco 49ers have seen a return to glory since Jim Harbaugh left the Stanford Cardinals and brought his talents to the NFL, taking over one of the most storied franchises in the history of the NFL. The 49ers have not started a season 3-0 since Harbaugh came to town; yet have made it to thr ...

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 pi ...

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 f ...
