Aldon Smith got off to a rough start in the offseason when he was arrested for drunken driving in Miami Beach, Fla., and now he’s experiencing a rough end to his offseason.
The outside linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers is recovering from a “minor injury” suffered Friday night in a wild party, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. The Associated Press reports that Smith suffered stab wounds. The club released the following statement from general manager Trent Baalke:
“The San Francisco 49ers are aware that Aldon Smith incurred minor injuries during an incident last night. We are in contact with Aldon, and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably. The 49ers are also in communication with local authorities as they gather information regarding the incident, and will reserve further comment at this time.”
Barrows reports there was a house party that got wild with gunshots reported at around 2 a.m. The Santa Clara, Calif., sheriff’s office responded and the party was so out of hand that California Highway Patrol and San Jose police were called to assist. Per the report, two people suffered gunshot wounds and another suffered stab wounds with three people transported to hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
Hopefully, Smith is healed soon and everyone else injured at the party is also fine. Surely, more details from this incident will surface soon.
