At 7 AM on Friday morning, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested on the suspicion of DUI. After a single-car accident, he took a breathalyzer, failed, and was booked into jail. The San Jose Mercury News also reported that marijuana and ‚Äúpills‚ÄĚ were found in Smith‚Äôs car, and he had been booked for possession. It also reports that his BAC was 0.15, nearly twice the legal limit.

But that treatment won‚Äôt begin until after Smith gets to play in today‚Äôs game against the Colts.

not mean this in the ubiquitous wrong message to "the kids/the
fans/his teammates/MADD/advertisers/journalists" sort of way we
always hear debated. The wrong message was sent to the kid who got
behind the wheel of a car drunk instead of calling a cab or a
friend or the NFLPA service. This is not about punishment...
