[UPDATE:] The Santa Clara Police Department says they received a call around 8:46 pm on Thursday night about a collision involving a parked car. Turns out, Aldon Smith was parking his vehicle and collided with a parked vehicle in Santa Clara.

Officials say after the collision, Smith exited his vehicle and caused additional damage to the parked vehicle with his car door. Smith left the scene without leaving his identifying information at the scene, but we are told he came back to the scene where he was contacted by officers. Smith displayed signs of being under the influence of an alcoholic beverage so officials administered a file sobriety test.

Smith was eventually arrested for being under the DUI, Hit&Run, and Vandalism.

The investigation into this matter is ongoing.


San Francisco 49ers star Aldon Smith was taken into custody late Thursday night after being busted for DUI, vandalism and hit and run. The Santa Clara Police Department confirmed the news on Twitter writing:

This is not the first time the outside linebacker has run into legal problems. In 2012, he was arrested for a DUI while in Miami Beach. In 2013, Smith entered a rehab facility after getting into a car accident in San Jose, Ca. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

And in 2014, Aldon was cuffed after getting into an altercation with a TSA agent at LAX. Smith was accused of carrying a bomb.  Those charges were eventually dropped.

Calls to Aldon’s reps were not returned.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
