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.

49ers-Cardinals final score: Is everything falling apart, or is it just early season malaise?

Sep 21 2014 10:10pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers lost a tough one Sunday afternoon, dropping a 23-14 decision to the Arizona Cardinals.

How much will 49ers pass rush impact Week 3?

Sep 18 2014 12:55pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers pass rush has been problematic through the first two weeks. Will we see any improvement in Week 3? If not, what can we expect from Drew Stanton? One of the many 49ers story lines coming out of the first two weeks has been the lack of a consistent pass rush. Justin Smith and Aaron Lynch have done some solid work, but that has not been enough to overcome the lack of it from ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Updated 2014 Analysis Before Thursday Night Football

Sep 18 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

While it is always important for NFL teams to come away with wins each week, every win is not created equal. This makes it necessary to go beyond the records when examining which teams are best. You cannot ignore a surprise 2-0 squad, but overreacting after just two weeks of the season is a much bigger mistake. Plenty of talented teams are ready to turn things around after slow starts, while others are likely to come back to earth after beginning the ye ...

Roger Goodell has been out of the spotlight since last week’s interview with Norah O’Donnell. While the shiny lights of discussing Roger Goodell, and Ray Rice, and then the Adrian Peterson story have kept us occupied, the man who normally stands out front as the public face of the league was absent. Now that the Vikings have reversed course on the Peterson decision, people are starting to take notice. Our favorite grumpy uncle Ray Ratto wa ...
