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.

Taormina Film Fest - June 21st
Good Morning Broncos Country, here's what the NFL and your Broncos have to offer today. John Fox thinks Peyton Manning can improve I clicked on this little gem and it's basically a lot of coach-speak.  "Yeah he was good but he's had a good offseason and we think he can do better" type of stuff. What I really want to hear at some-point is how John Fox thinks he can improve as a coach.  Right now John Fox may be about neck to neck with Andy ...

How make or break it is the season really?

Aldon Smith Portrait Session
Don Banks pointed to the 49ers as a team facing distractions this season. Is he accurate? Now that Aldon Smith's legal problems are coming to a close, it's probably about time to start putting a wrap on the offseason. Training camp is fast approaching, and while we have a couple of story lines to follow concomitant with training camp (Alex Boone and Vernon Davis holdouts), most lingering offseason questions are just about tied off neatly. In ...

San Francisco 49ers v Seattle Seahawks
The San Francisco 49ers signed Joe Staley to a contract extension on Thursday. Now that he and Colin Kaepernick have been extended, who's next? The San Francisco 49ers took care of some business Thursday afternoon, signing left tackle Joe Staley to a 2-year contract extension that could keep him with the team through the 2019 season. Given that Staley turns 30 later next month, that likely means he will spend the rest of his career with the 49ers. Ther ...

Tony Collins Talks “Broken Road”: A Conversation with the Former Patriots RB

Jul 17 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Funeral Held For Helicopter Crash Victim PC Tony Collins
I don’t remember every detail about that awful morning in Indianapolis, but the guy in black is burned into my memory. I was on the grass outside my apartment complex, having convulsions, flopping up and down. There was this big wide field nearby, and I saw a man walking toward me, dressed in all black. I said to myself, “I don’t want to die like this.” --Opening paragraph from “Broken Road” by Tony Collins with Bethany Bradsher We don’t imagine pro sports athletes like we used to. We th ...

49ers roster, 90-in-90 breakdowns: Aaron Lynch

Jul 16 2014 8:00pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

Warrnambool May Racing Carnival
Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days or in however long we feel like it). Today we focus on outside linebacker Aaron Lynch. Each year, we like to run a series of posts called "90-in-90." The idea is that we'll take a look at every player on the roster, from the very bottom to the top and break them down a few ways. This roster will certainly change, and some days we' ...
