Raiders' Aldon Smith under investigation over 'domestic incident,' report says

Aldon Smith

TMZ Sports is reporting Smith is under investigation for a domestic incident Saturday in San Francisco.

Named the NFC Defensive Player of the Year as recently as 2012, Smith was a Pro Bowler and also First-Team All-Pro in 2012.

He has applied for reinstatement, but in December, the National Football League deferred ruling Smith's case until March. Smith and a victim were in San Francisco at the time of the call, and each were interviewed for a police report.

But Smith was not arrested and has not been charged. He played nine games for the Raiders before being suspended for one full year in November, 2105, after violating the National Football League policy and program for substances abuse.

During an interview on February 9, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie told 95.7 the Game that the team would welcome Smith back whenever he gets reinstated.

Shortly after that report, Smith went on Facebook live and to exclaim that he's back. It tolled in 2016 despite him never playing a game, meaning he has one year left on his deal with the Raiders. The arrest was his fifth since being drafted in 2011.

He has played in only 27 of a possible 64 games since the start of the 2013 season because of suspensions and an earlier stint in rehab in 2013 after a DUI arrest.
