Oakland Raiders' Aldon Smith checks into rehab after alleged incident

Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith sits on the bench during the second half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Oakland Calif

"I'm scared for his life with his addiction", McKnight said to TMZ.

A day after he was named a suspect in domestic violence incident, the Oakland Raiders released linebacker Aldon Smith.

Smith, who recently got engaged, is now being pursued by police, who would like to discuss the incident further. Smith was last seen proposing to his girlfriend at Gary Danko restaurant just last month.

San Francisco police officers responded to a report of a domestic-violence incident on Saturday night. But the NFL, in reaction to his numerous brushes with the law and the league's substance abuse policy, suspended Smith for a year on November 17, 2015, and has yet to reinstate him.

That came while police said they were searching for him after the incident.

On March 10, 2017, Smith was again detained by SFPD when he was a passenger in a vehicle that ran into a police cruiser. He was later signed by Oakland - and is now still under contract with Raiders organization - but hasn't played since 2015.

No player within the big five European leagues has scored in more competitive club games than Mohamed Salah (26 games) in 2017-18. Salah has had a stunning first season at Liverpool since arriving from Serie A giants Roma last summer.

Smith's fiance said she is anxious about Smith and he needs help.

In the past Smith has also been detained as a suspect for making false bomb threats at an airport in 2014, and he was charged with possession of illegal assault weapons in 2013.

As for his National Football League career, it seems his playing days are over, with the news coming down that the Oakland Raiders released the 28-year-old.

"Minutes later, a San Francisco dispatcher says Smith had drank two bottles of tequila and was possibly heading back to his Oakland residence in his Range Rover".

Smith applied for reinstatement, which was initially denied in 2016.
