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.

Fangio on Dan Skuta injury: 'I would say he is questionable right now moving forward'

Nov 4 2014 1:45pm CST | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers did not have an extensive injury list after Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Rams, but they had a couple players get hurt. Brandon Lloyd (hamstring) and Dan Skuta (ankle) both left the game and were listed as questionable to return. I don't recall seeing either return. We have not heard anything on Lloyd's status, but Vic Fangio briefly addressed Skuta's status. According ...

49ers vs. Rams final score: That sucked, so let's talk about it

Nov 2 2014 7:30pm CST | Source: ninersnation

How 'bout them Niners? The St. Louis Rams are just pretty darn solid at making the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks look bad, aren't they? They'll go weeks without a sack and without looking good at all, and then they'll do what they did on Sunday, especially in the first half, and make the 49ers look silly. They'll score just before halftime and make the game way closer than it n ...

5 Keys for a Successful Playoff Chase for the San Francisco 49ers

Oct 31 2014 8:28pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers come off the bye in the thick of the NFC playoff race but will need to make some improvements in order to ensure they seal a fourth straight postseason berth.  At 4-3 the Niners have performed well for most of the campaign. However, a number of failings in key areas have kept Jim Harbaugh's club two games behind the division rival Arizona Cardinals, who at 6-1 sit as the class of the conference. Yet with its roster now getting healthy and th ...

What to Expect from Frank Gore, 49ers Offense in Week 9

Oct 30 2014 7:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers entered their bye coming off of a demoralizing loss to the Denver Broncos. Now, the 49ers are hopefully ready to pick up the pieces, and it starts with this roster getting healthy.  Will we see Glenn Dorsey, NaVorro Bowman or even Aldon Smith return to the lineup? Probably not, but the 49ers have some key pieces returning, including All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis.  We all know the defense will eventually return to fu ...

The San Francisco 49ers have an open roster spot heading into Week 9. We take a look at why they are hanging on to it. The San Francisco 49ers returned to practice on Wednesday, with all 52 players taking part in practice. Tramaine Brock, Jimmie Ward and Patrick Willis were all listed as limited, but they took part in some portion of practice. This marks the healthiest the 49ers have been since fairly early in the season, which hopefully bodes well fo ...
