MIAMI (CBS SF) — San Francisco 49er rookie outside linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Friday night and charged with driving under the influence.
Smith, 23, had just completed his first season in the National Football League after being selected with the seventh overall pick out of the University of Missouri.
Smith had 14 sacks as a linebacker in 2011.
He was first in the league in sacks for rookies and almost broke the rookie sack record in the NFL.
Smith was booked into jail Saturday morning and was given a $1,000 bond.
He’s expected to make his first appearance in bond court Sunday.
