San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday on felony weapons charges.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday on felony weapons charges.

Once Smith surrendered to police at approximately 6:51 p.m., he "almost immediately posted bail," per NBC Bay Area, citing a source with knowledge of the situation. Bail was set at $75,000.

Turning himself in by the end of the month was part of the agreement made with Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen when he was slapped with possession of illegal firearms charges on Oct. 9. These are traced to a June 2012 house party where he was stabbed and two guests were shot. 

An assortment of firearms and ammunition were discovered by police at Smith's residence. Prosecutors maintain he purchased the weapons, which include several caliber rifles, in Arizona while he was still a California resident. This status disallows a person to buy assault weapons. He is due to appear in court on Nov. 12. 

At the time of the weapons charges, Smith was in rehab as a result of an earlier DUI arrest in San Jose. For this, he has another court appearance schedule on Nov. 19. 

Shortly after his DUI arrest, Smith said he will go on an indefinite leave of absence from the team

"I am taking a leave of absence to address my health. I am sorry that I have affected my team, my family and the organization. I will do everything in my power to handle this situation the best way possible. I appreciate the support of the 49ers and our fans." 

The beleaguered San Francisco linebacker met with his head coach, Jim Harbaugh, at the team facility on Wednesday. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport asked Harbaugh, who said Smith "looks great," for an update.

Harbaugh said,"The best approach is a day-to-day approach. And just focusing on having a good day today. Getting the most out of today and avoid the 'if this, if that, in a week, in two weeks, in a month' timetable kind of talk." 

Smith was drafted seventh overall by the 49ers in the 2011 NFL Draft out of the University of Missouri. In 35 career games, all with San Francisco, he has 121 combined tackles, 38 sacks and five forced fumbles, per ESPN stats.

Aldon Smith was "exceptional" during suspension, but it won't be reduced

Nov 4 2014 11:30pm CST | Source: 49ers

Sacramento Bee - By now it appears Aldon Smith's suspension won't be reduced by one, two or any games. Last week, Rams coach Jeff Fisher made it clear that any opponent would need to know if a player was coming off the suspended list well in advance of that ...

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 to Fangio, Skuta was in for treatment on ...

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 needs to be after sacking Colin Kaepernick half a hundre ...

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 ...

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

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 al ...

Consider why the 49ers have a 52-man roster heading into the Rams game

Oct 30 2014 9:33am CDT | Source: ninersnation

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 for the second ha ...
