Former 49ers and current (suspended) Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith is wanted in connection with a domestic violence incident on Saturday night in San Francisco, according to a report from the Mercury News.

According to the report, a woman called police around 8:30 p.m.

“Caller says her ex-boyfriend is beating her up….also hear: ‘No please. No please.’ … it’s an ongoing issue,” a San Francisco police dispatcher told officers around 8:30 p.m. Saturday. “The guy’s name is Aldon Smith.”

San Francisco police said the victim had non-life-threatening injuries.

“The suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival and was identified as professional football player Aldon Smith, a 28-year-old Oakland resident,” San Francisco police said. Officers arrived around 8:30 p.m. Saturday to a residence in the 600 block of Bush Street in San Francisco after receiving the report of a domestic-violence incident.

The victim called police again, saying Smith bit her wrists and climbed out her window, possibly fleeing in a black Range Rover, according to dispatch audio reviewed by this news agency.


Smith has been arrested on a litany of charges over the past five years. In November 2015, he was suspended from the NFL for one year after his third DUI. In 2014, he was detained after being suspected of making a false bomb threat at LAX. In 2013, he was charged with possession of illegal assault weapons after an incident at a party at his house when he was stabbed and two people were shot. After a DUI in 2013, the 49ers granted him leave to go to rehab.

Smith hasn’t played in the NFL since 2015, as the league has yet to act on his application for reinstatement.

Update (3:15 p.m. ET): The Oakland Raiders have cut Aldon Smith.
