Aldon Smith Detained, But Not Arrested

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities say suspended Oakland Raiders player Aldon Smith was detained in San Francisco after an SUV he was riding in crashed into an undercover police car, injuring two officers.

Bay Area news station KTVU reports (http://bit.ly/2lItypu ) that the officers were taken to a hospital Thursday for injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Police say Smith was detained for public intoxication. Officer Robert Rueca said he wasn’t arrested.

The woman driving the SUV was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

The University of Missouri alum has played less than 20 games in the last three seasons. The NFL had been expected to review his status this month after he received a one-year suspension for violating the league’s rules on substance abuse.

Smith’s agent didn’t immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy had no comment Thursday.
