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.

Questioning Goodell's Handling of Aldon Smith's Case

Aug 28 2014 1:03pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

As the delay in making an announcement drags on, we might have room to criticize Roger Goodell's (lack of) attention to the case. It's time to start questioning whether or not Roger Goodell has been handling Aldon Smith's potential suspension well. Already in some proverbial hot water based upon recent suspensions, Goodell has not been making a lot of friends in the San Francisco community by delaying the announcement of Smith's pot ...
