Brace yourself for shocking news: a rich, popular 22-year old went out partying and made an irresponsible life decision. Set judgment eyeballs to stunned — San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was charged Saturday with DUI in Miami Beach on Saturday.
The report, which may’ve been written by a scoop-getting robot, from the New York Daily News:
Miami-Dade County jail records show Smith was booked Saturday morning and held on $1,000 bond. Jail records did not show whether Smith was represented by an attorney. A Miami-Dade County Corrections spokeswoman said Smith was arrested by Miami Beach police. A police spokesman said he had no information immediately available about the arrest.
The 49ers said in a statement Saturday that they were aware of the arrest.
“We take these issues very seriously, but will reserve further comment at this time, as this is an ongoing legal matter,” the team said. “The 49ers will continue to gather the facts and monitor the developments closely.”
You’ve got to love that the report is “Smith was arrested. He was arrested by police. Uh, police are people who do arrests. We don’t know anything else. Please visit our website”. They should’ve just said f**k it and ended their post with “in conclusion, Aldon Smith can be compared and contrasted”.
The link to the mugshot provided on Fark Sports reads “49ers linebacker Aldon Smith can’t be bothered to give a fark in his DUI arrest mugshot”, but I don’t think that’s the case. Sure, he might look a little U the I, but I think that’s just the way he takes pictures. I mean, look:
I think he’s smiling in the last one.
