Aldon Smith says 'bomb' at an airport: Arrested

I hope Justice is done. However, I could care less from a football standpoint. Aldon is very ineffective without Justin Smith. He's also very average against the run. He's an elite clean up(free to roam and make plays). But when challenged man to man or doubled, he's garbage.

Aldon Smith gets 12 days in jail on DUI charge
Posted by Mike Florio on July 18, 2014
49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has not avoided jail time. But he has gotten the closest thing possible to no jail time.
According to Tracy Kaplan of the San Jose Mercury News, a judge has sentenced 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith to 12 days in jail on gun and DUI charges. He gets credit for one day served, and he’ll serve the remaining 11 by participating in a work crew on Mondays, starting July 28.
It means that he’ll typically miss one day of work each week until the 11 days are served, exposing Smith to a fine from the 49ers. The bigger consequence as it relates to Smith’s job comes from the decision to reduce the three weapons charges from felonies to misdemeanors. That gives the outcome far less sting, from a legal standpoint.
He’ll also serve 235 hours of community service and pay a $2,000 fine. Smith will be placed on three years of probation, during which time he can’t own a weapon or ammunition.
The NFL will now review the case for discipline under the personal-conduct policy. Given his history of off-field issues, a suspension is probable. The reduction of the felonies to misdemeanors could help minimize or even eliminate the suspension.
Ridiculous. In Arizona the DUI charge alone gets you an overnight stay - none of this "work crew" BS. And three weapons charges? How can the judge pretend that such things should get a slap on the wrist?
Freaking spoiled athletes and their judicial enablers!
