Police say former Raider Aldon Smith violated restraining order
Former Oakland Raiders player Aldon Smith has surrendered to police on charges he violated a domestic violence restraining order.
San Francisco police say the 28-year-old Smith turned himself in Friday and was booked on three misdemeanor charges of violating a court order to stay away from a domestic violence victim.
Earlier this month, Smith pleaded not guilty to domestic violence and other charges and a judge issued a protective order prohibiting him from contacting the victim.
Police say Smith violated the restraining order earlier this week.
Jail records don’t show whether he is represented by an attorney.
The Raiders released the linebacker days after his arrest on domestic violence charges.
He had been on the suspended list since late 2015 for violating the NFL’s policy on substance abuse.
