Former Raiders and 49ers edge rusher Aldon Smith had a blood alcohol level .40 when he walked into the San Francisco County Sheriff’s department, the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Wednesday.
The newspaper said he reported to the law enforcement station for ankle monitoring as part of the conditions of his release on bail stemming from an incident that resulted in charges of domestic violence and assault with intent to cause great bodily injury, among others.
He was supposed to have a GPS attached to his ankle, in addition to a monitor that measures alcohol in swear. Smith was taken directly into custody instead, and remains in jail. He has not posted $500,000 bond.
He appeared in court on Wednesday, and the Chronicle reports Smith will remain in custody until Friday, when he will likely be taken to an in-custody, residential rehab facility.
Smith’s blood alcohol level when present at the SF Sherriff’s station is five times the legal limit, and is sufficient to put people in a coma.
Smith was ordered to be fit with ankle monitors after he violated a protective order, allegedly contacting the alleged victim from a March 3 domestic violence incident last month. He turn himself in shortly after, and posted bond. He was ordered to refrain from alcohol.
