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’ Harbaugh takes charge, unfazed by scrutiny
