Nobody was injured. — Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) September 20, 2013   Smith, the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft, has been no stranger to authorities during his time in the NFL. In January of 2012 he was arrested for DUI in Miami. A few months later he was stabbed multiple times at a house party, where a lawsuit emerged alleging him of firing several shots. Smith is a big part of the 49ers defense with 3.5 sacks this season and 37 in his career, the most of any player in a three-year span. Hopefully Smith can find a way to turn things around off the field, because so far he’s not doing much to protect himself.   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Editor-in-Chief – Justin Arbogast @NFLGuy_SK   The post 49ers’ Aldon Smith involved in accident; Arrested for DUI appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE - Presented by Sports-Kings.
