Aldon Smith Arrested for DUI and Marijuana Possession

Updates from Tuesday, April 29

Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee has the results of today's court appearance for Aldon Smith on DUI and gun-possession charges stemming from last fall:

The 49ers likely will have to decide on Aldon Smith's fifth-year option without a resolution in the DUI and gun-possession charges he is facing. The two sides did not reach a plea-bargain deal -- something the team thought was a possibility, albeit an unlikely one -- at a hearing today. A new hearing date is scheduled for May 12 in Santa Clara County Superior Court.

It's possible the case could be resolved at some point before then. But that probably won't occur before Saturday, the deadline for triggering the fifth-year option on Smith's contract. The team's single-season sack record holder is entering the final year of the contract he signed as a rookie in 2011, one that will pay him $2.336 this season.
