IFWT_Aldon Smith 68

Hopefully 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will get the help he needs.  Over the weekend we learned that he was charged with DUI (his second time) after crashing his truck — pills and weed were also found in his vehicle.  He has apologized and taken a leave of absence from the team.

San Francisco linebacker Aldon Smith will miss Thursday night’s game at St. Louis and perhaps sit out longer, 49ers CEO Jed York said Sunday.

Smith will seek treatment following his arrest Friday for suspicion of driving under the influence. After Sunday’s loss to the Colts, Smith apologized and acknowledged he will get help, but didn’t field questions.

“First off, I wanted to apologize to the team, the organization, my family and everybody I let down,” he said. “I also wanted to let it be known that this is a problem and it’s something that I will get fixed, and that I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that this never happens again.

“I also wanted to let everybody know that once again I’m sorry.”
