Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was released from a Los Angeles jail Sunday, April 13, after posting $20,000 bail, shortly after being charged with making a false bomb threat earlier in the day at Los Angeles International Airport. A LAPD spokesman said although it was observed Smith may have been drinking prior to the incident, it was not a factor to his arrest.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday, April 13, at Los Angeles International Airport after he made a threat that he possessed a bomb, airport police said. Smith reacted in a belligerent manner to a second security screening when he was in a security line. After making the bomb threat, he proceeded to the gate and airport police were summoned. He was detained and subsequently arrested. "We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith. As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment," general manager Trent Baalke said.
In the past 27 months, Smith has been arrested twice for driving under the influence, and he faces three felony weapons charges stemming from a party at his home in June 2012. Smith was stabbed during that incident, and two others were shot.
Fantasy Tip: While it is pure speculation, it is likely the last straw for the 49ers. He is an ultra-talented player, but also a stain on the organization which has had a very good track record with citizenship over the years. Smith and Chris Culliver are each facing serious legal troubles, and it wouldn't be surprising to see both of them gone this offseason.
