49ers' Smith faces felony weapons charges

The SportsXchange

Three felony charges of possession of assault weapons against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith were filed by the Santa Clara County District Attorney, reported Wednesday.

Smith is already facing recent DUI charges and also two civil lawsuits resulting from an alleged shooting that occurred at his 8,000-square foot house in June 2012.

Two people were shot and Smith was stabbed at the house party last year. Smith and former 49ers tight end Delanie Walker were named in the suits by alleged victims of the shooting. They are not accused of firing the weapons but of instigating a situation in which guests ran from the house after hearing shots.

Last month, Smith was placed on an indefinite leave from the 49ers and entered an in-patient rehab for substance abuse. He was arrested by San Jose Police on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession at 7 a.m. on Sept. 20. Two days later, he played in a game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The third-year pro combined for 33 1/2 sacks the past two seasons. This year, he had 4 1/2 sacks and 18 tackles in three games.
