Aldon Smith has had his fair share of run-ins with the law over the years and now the former Raiders star pass rusher is headed to jail for one year after pleading no contest to a felony DUI charge from 2021.

Smith also received five years of probation that will go into effect right away. 

Smith smashed his truck into the back of a Recology truck at a stop sign, leaving the driver of the truck with minor injuries.

Police stated that Smith attempted to bribe the driver with $1,000 for a ride and to not call the police according to The Mercury News. However, California Highway Patrol officers came to the scene and found two empty bottles of hard alcohol in Smith’s truck, according to court records.

Smith has the most sacks in a single season for the 49ers and his past is finally catching up to him. He served three previous DUI sentences in addition to battery and domestic violence charges.
