The San Jose Mercury News is also reporting Smith faces two separate misdemeanor DUI charges for incidents since the summer of 2012.

The team issued the following statement to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News:

The 49ers organization is aware of the recent developments with Aldon arising from an incident at his home in 2012. We recognize the serious nature of this situation, as does Aldon, and will continue to monitor it closely. As this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment.

His felony arraignment is set for November 12th. Smith turned himself in on Tuesday night and posted bail.
