Aldon Smith won’t face charges from incident at LAX
- Updated: July 1, 2014
The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office has decided not to file charges against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith for the incident involving an alleged bomb threat at LAX. Instead, an office hearing will be set up on July 30 to address the situation.
“The individuals are their admonished about the applicable laws and given suggestions on how to avoid similar incidents in the future,” said Frank Mateljan of the City Attorney’s office via email. “While the City Attorney reserves the right to file charges up to one year following the incident, no further action is scheduled beyond the office hearing.”
While this incident appears to now be behind him, Smith still has a sentencing hearing scheduled for July 25 for weapons possession and DUI charges. He could face up to four years and four months in jail, but could also get off with just probation time.
Regardless of the outcome, there is still a possibility Smith could face a suspension from the NFL as well.
