San Francisco’s 49ers’ linebacker Aldon Smith was stabbed in an incident in San Jose, California but thankfully only suffered minor injuries. An anonymous source said he was indeed stabbed, and the person spoke under the condition of anonymity because details have yet to be released.
“(We) are aware that Aldon Smith incurred minor injuries during an incident last night,” the 49ers said in a statement. “We are in contact with Aldon and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably. The 49ers are also in communication with local authorities as they gather information regarding the incident, and will reserve further comment at this time.”
The Sacramento Bee reported that Santa Clara County Sheriffs’ office deputies reported to a house party around 2 am on Sunday. They were called to the scene because neighbors reported hearing gunshots. Two people were found shot and one person was found stabbed.
Sources confirmed that was indeed Smith who was stabbed. Smith who is only 22 years old has had a tumultuous off seasons since his break out rookie season. As a rookie he set the franchise record with 14 sacks and he also recorded two forced fumbles. In January Smith was charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach.
Ever since the movie “Project X” there has been an effort to throw outrageous house parties, emulating the film. There were said to be over a 100 people at this specific party. They even called for backup from California Highway Patrol.
“It was a chaotic scene,” California Highway Patrol Sgt. Cardoza said. “There was a lot of commotion, and no one knows where the gunshots came from.”
Cardoza told the newspaper there are no suspects in the case at this time.
