San Francisco 49ers player Aldon Smith was arrested for his most recent DUI last night (Aug. 6), but the NFL player denies that he was under the influence. According to Aldon: “Justice will be served.”
That’s a pretty extreme statement for a DUI bust, but maybe there’s more to the story? Aldon was also arrested for vandalism and hit and run, and he’s not worried that things won’t work out.
“The people who are faithful remain faithful,” Smith told San Francisco’s KGO. “Simple as this: Justice will be served, the truth will come out, there’s no DUI. I’m sorry for anybody I let down, I’m sorry for the way this whole thing . . . I need to speak and I want everybody to understand, this wasn’t a DUI, the situation I had could have been handled differently and I apologize for everybody I did let down and I apologize for how it all played out. But as far as everything is concerned, it will work out the way it’s supposed to work out. That’s all.”
Aldon has been busted for DUI three times. Neither he, nor the Santa Clara Police Department, have detailed what actually happened during the most recent DUI arrest.
The pro-athlete was released today on $26,000 bond.
