Aldon Smith facing charges for driving under the influence

Professional athletes are used to being in the media. When driving under the influence is involved, it can be harder on a celebrity because people can be quicker to judge. Recently, Aldon Smith was arrested in California for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Smith, who is a professional football player for the San Francisco 49ers, apparently crashed his vehicle into a tree prior to the arrest. He is facing a marijuana charge as well. According to reports, police officers responded to a call from a resident about the accident. Reports state that breath tests, other tests, and an investigation were conducted as a determining factor to arrest Smith. Details were not released regarding the other tests.

Smith was the only occupant of the vehicle. The 23-year-old was able to post bail merely hours after his arrest. When reporters reached out to his coach, he stated it was expected that Smith would continue playing as he has been and face his consequences as scheduled. Unfortunately, this is not Smith's first run in with the law and it is unknown if any previous charges or accusations could be brought up in court.

Any California resident facing charges for driving under the influence could benefit from knowing their rights and having an understanding of what to expect. Knowing the proper steps to take and the appropriate way to handle the charges can prove beneficial when moving forward with a defense. When the right action is taken, a person can be more hopeful a beneficial outcome will result, and they can hopefully resume their normal daily lives as soon as possible.
