Aldon Smith turns himself in on felony gun charges

San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith turned himself in on felony weapons charges and is now free on bail, according to NBC Bay Area.

He's due in court Nov. 12 for the gun charges with a Nov. 19 court date for misdemeanor driving under the influence and drug charges.

He's free on $75,000 bail.

Smith has been in a rehab facility for alcohol treatment.

Smith was charged with gun charges stemming from a June 2012 incident where he was stabbed and two other individuals were shot.

Although the 49ers have said Smith is making progress in dealing with his personal problems that have played out on a public stage, there's no timetable for when he might return to the football field.
