The soap opera we know as the NFL continues with players and  their issues. San Francisco 49ers all-pro linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession after a one-car accident early Friday morning in San Jose, Calif.

At approximately 7 a.m. Smith was detained by local authorities for the fender bender after it was discovered he had marijuana and pills in the vehicle. He was later released on bail.

Smith, who had a 19.5-sack season in 2012 and has already posted 3.5 sacks this season, is no stranger to trouble. He was charged once before in Miami for reckless driving and was involved in a night club altercation.

These guys need to stick to football and stay out of trouble.
