CHALMETTE, La. (AP) — Aldon Smith, DE for the Seahawks, surrendered to police in Louisiana.
He was booked Tuesday evening on second degree battery and released about two hours later. While in police custody, officers took a mug shot, which TMZ shared.
An arrest warrant was issued for the former Missouri Tiger and Raytown, Missouri, native after deputies responded to a call for help at a coffee shop in the New Orleans area on Saturday. They found a man who said he’s been assaulted by Smith.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on July 14, 2021 at 9:00 a.m.
The 31-year-old has been arrested multiple times, including once in June of 2019 for DUI in Mission, Kansas. Officers stopped him after he was speeding and illegally changing lanes. He also checked himself into rehab in 2018.
He signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks on April 15, 2021.
The Seahawks say they are aware of the current situation and are gathering more information. The team had no further comment.
