SANTA CLARA – Former 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith displayed “objective symptoms” of being under the influence of alcohol, according to a Santa Clara Police incident summary released Friday.
The 49ers on Friday released Smith after his fifth run-in with the law since the club selected him with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2011 draft.
According to the police summary, Smith collided with a parked vehicle as he was parking. After the collision, Smith caused additional damage to the parked vehicle with his car door.
Smith left the area and did not report the collision or leave any contact information at the scene. Officers were called to the Moreland Way location in Santa Clara after being dispatched at 8:46 p.m.
“Smith displayed objective symptoms of being under the influence of an alcoholic beverage,” the report said. “Officers administered a field sobriety test to Smith.”
Smith provided a preliminary alcohol screening device sample, but Santa Clara police did not release the results, citing department policy.
SCPD said the investigation is ongoing. When the investigation is completed, the results will be forwarded to the Santa Clara County District Attorney to consider for prosecution. If the DA files charges, Smith is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 6.
