An arrest warrant has been issued for Seattle Seahawks defensive end Aldon Smith for an alleged assault on Saturday night in the New Orleans area.
This was stated by Perry Nicosia, the district attorney of St. Bernard.
He said the football player suffocated a victim until she fell unconscious. The incident allegedly took place in a café and the victim was transported to a hospital in the region.
The WDSU television network was the first to report that Smith was wanted by authorities and that the incident had been captured by cameras. The athlete had initialed an agreement with the Seahawks two days before the alleged assault.
Selected in the first round (seventh overall) by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2011 draft, Smith was released four years later by the California organization. She made the decision after the 31-year-old’s third impaired driving arrest. He was later hired by the Oakland Raiders, but was suspended for a hit-and-run. The team now in Las Vegas released him in 2018 after an arrest for domestic violence.
In 75 NFL games, the 2020 Dallas Cowboysman has 228 tackles, including 52.5 quarterback sacks.
