More specifics from Aldon Smith’s arrest this morning were reported by the San Jose Mercury News:
Smith was booked into Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession, but was later released after posting $5,250 bail.
Marijuana and pills also were found in the car, sources said. Smith had a blood alcohol level of .15 — nearly twice the legal limit — and didn’t have a prescription for pot, sources said.
Also, this morning’s mugshot is now making the rounds:
For comparison’s sake, here’s how he posed after his DUI arrest in Florida back in January 2012:
He’s almost smirking in the earlier photo, not as much in the one taken today with the messed-up hair. It’s hard to know if he actually felt remorse as they booked him this morning, or if he’s just blitzed out of his mind. He did crash his pickup truck into a tree, after all.
Many (including yours truly) believed the San Francisco 49ers would hold Smith out of Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, after taking a look at Matt Maiocco’s Twitter feed that doesn’t seem at all like a certainty.
49ers OLB Aldon Smith is on the practice field.

I’m heading down to Santa Clara after posting this to attend Jim Harbaugh’s press conference, where he’ll probably make no comments other than “It’s been handled internally.”
