Aldon Smith seemed to be getting his life in order last month when he got engaged and was focused on returning to the NFL. The 28-year-old reportedly fled the scene, and police want to bring him in for questioning. On Monday, TMZ attributed his fiancee, Shawna McKnight, when reporting that Smith reached out to the victim's parents, who facilitated his entrance into a rehabilitation facility. "I cannot comment on the altercation, but I can tell you I love him and (am) so happy he turned to my family, who considers him family". He was later signed by Oakland - and is now still under contract with Raiders organization - but hasn't played since 2015. Smith allegedly left the home before officers arrived.
Smith hasn't played a snap since 2015 and was already now banned from the NFL due to his status as a repeat offender of the league's substance abuse program.
"Caller says her ex-boyfriend is beating her up ... also hear: 'No please".
Smith played nine games for Oakland in 2015, with seven starts, and had 3.5 sacks.
The troubled linebacker has been arrested several times on charges of drunken driving, vandalism and illegal possession of assault rifles among other charges since the San Francisco 49ers drafted him in 2011 in the first round.
Smith was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, which is the same year he made the Pro Bowl and was named first-team All-Pro.
