Judge issues warrant for Aldon Smith's arrest after missed court date, report says

Smith turned himself in to authorities March 6 after he was charged with four misdemeanors related to a domestic violence incident.

A judge has issued a bench warrant for Aldon Smith's arrest after the former Raiders and 49ers linebacker missed his court date, according to TMZ.

Smith was due in court for violating a protective order on charges stemming from four misdemeanors he accrued in a domestic violence incident which occurred with his fiancée in March.

In the incident in question, Smith allegedly beat his girlfriend and bit her on her wrists. According to police dispatch records, Smith was thought to have drank two bottles of tequila before the incident.

The 28-year-old Smith turned himself into police March 6 and was released on $30,000 bail.

Smith is currently waiting to go to trial on counts of domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism.

His lawyer said he had never missed a court date before and that he planned to be present.

The Raiders released Smith in March after learning of the domestic violence incident. Selected by the 49ers with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Smith hasn't played in the NFL since 2015, after being suspended in August of that year for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
