Aldon Smith's fiancee says she's the alleged victim in a domestic violence incident.

The troubled linebacker has been arrested several times on charges including drunken driving, vandalism and illegal possession of assault rifles since the San Francisco 49ers selected him in the first round of the 2011 National Football League draft. Smith, who had reportedly checked himself into a rehabilitation facility, was released by the Raiders on Monday afternoon.

On Saturday, San Francisco police dispatch audio indicates that Smith allegedly drank two bottles of tequila, bit his fiancee on her wrists and beat her up in an "ongoing issue".

Smith's fiancée told the gossip website that her parents drove him to the rehab clinic.

I wish the best for Aldon. Less than three weeks after that, Smith was arrested and charged with possession of an assault weapon stemming from a violent incident at a party at his San Jose home in 2012. "I'm anxious for his safety", an insider told TMZ Sports. I cannot comment on the altercation but I can tell you I love him and (am) so happy he turned to my family who considers him family and hopefully he gets the help he truly needs. The Raiders retained Smith's contractual rights even as he spent the past two seasons on the NFL's suspended list. He previously played for the San Francisco 49ers starting in 2011 before being released by the team in August 2015 following an arrest for a DUI hit-and-run in Santa Clara. He recorded 44 sacks in 50 games with the 49ers before registering 3.5 in nine contests (seven starts) with Oakland in 2015.
