Described by neighbors as "terrible," "reckless," and an "immature millionaire," 49ers linebacker Aldom Smith, 22, was stabbed at his own East San Jose party on Saturday just five months after being arrested for driving under the influence in Florida. The 49ers' general manager, Trent Baalke, released a statement saying that Smith "incurred minor injuries during an incident" and that "we are in contact with Aldon, and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably."
Authorities responded to a 911 call at around 2 a.m. on Saturday after the caller reported hearing gunfire coming from Smith's pad. When they arrived, they found a bloody Smith and that two other people had been shot.
San Jose sheriff's Sgt. Jose Cardoza described to Marin Independent Journal the scene as "pretty chaotic when law enforcement arrived," adding, "There were at least 100 people, and there was a lot of alcohol involved. Everyone was confused, everyone heard gunshots, heard commotion, but nobody knew where the gunshots were coming from. Amongst all the chaos, there were a couple of gunshot victims in the crowd and a stabbing victim."
Neighbors tell KRON 4 Morning News that Smith, who, we should repeat, is only 22, is a lound and obnoxious neighbor who throws lots of loud parties. One square neighbor claimed that he often hears gunfire coming from Smith's home as the lineback, it seems, is a fan of shooting firearms.
The sheriff's office has asked anyone with information to call 408-808-4500.
