San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Aldon Smith was arrested Friday morning for suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession after he was involved in a crash, according to the Santa Clara County Sherriff's Department.
Smith was the driver in a single-vehicle accident, according to San Jose Police. Nobody was injured in the crash. He was arrested at 7 a.m.
"At some point, they did a breath sample and it was over the limit," San Jose Police Sgt. Heather Randol said. "He was not injured, and it does not appear as if anybody else was in the vehicle with him. And there were no other involved vehicles or reported injuries."
The Bay Area News Group reported that marijuana and pills were also found in the car Smith was driving when he crashed into a tree. He also reportedly had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.15.
An NFL spokesman told the Bay Area News Group that such an arrest could result in a suspension, per league policy.
Smith's bail was $5,250, according to the Sacramento Bee.
"The 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Aldon Smith. As we continue to gather information regarding this situation, we will have no further comment," the team said in a statement.
It is Smith's second DUI arrest since the 49ers drafted him in the first round in 2011. He was also arrested in January 2012 after an incident in Miami Beach. The charges were later reduced.
Smith, 23, is also facing two lawsuits stemming from a party at his San Jose home in June 2012. Smith was stabbed at the party, but the injuries were not serious.
The 49ers have had five DUI-related arrests over the last two and a half years. Last season, defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs was arrested after single-car crash on a Friday. He did not make the trip to St. Louis for that game.
Smith has 3 1/2 sacks for the 49ers (1-1), who host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
