According to reporter Ted Ramey, Smith was involved in a domestic-violence incident and also fled the scene.

Police responded to a call on Saturday evening at a home near Union Square, but the suspect, identified as Smith, had allegedly fled before the authorities arrived, San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said in a statement.

It has been a hard path for Smith over the last few years since being indefinitely suspended from the National Football League due to violating the substance-abuse policy.

Suspended Oakland Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith in is trouble again.

The rap sheet on Smith is both long and depressing.

On Monday, TMZ attributed his fiancee, Shawna McKnight, when reporting that Smith reached out to the victim's parents, who facilitated his entrance into a rehabilitation facility.

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

Smith hasn't played for the Raiders in more than two years, but the one-year contract he signed on April 4, 2016 would have been valid should he ever have been reinstated by the NFL.

"I'm scared for his life with his addiction", the woman told TMZ.

"I wish the best for Aldon", she said. He remains suspended by the NFL.

Smith, a first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2011 and a first-team All Pro in 2012, has had numerous run-ins with the law.

"I can tell you this".

He hasn't played since those nine games with Oakland.

And in 2013, Smith turned himself in on three felony counts for possessing illegal assault weapons after a stabbing incident.
