Aldon Smith under investigation for domestic incident

He was suspended for the entire 2016 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Reports sat that the Raiders' linebacker was involved in a dispute early Saturday morning. Expect more information to surface about the incident over the next few hours and/or days. Smith owns a house in San Francisco.

Smith is mentioned in a report about their response and described as cooperative, but no details about what led to the call for police help have been made public at this time.

If Smith is not arrested or charged, he could still be in violation of terms of his suspension depending on what the National Football League learns about the latest incident.

Smith was expected to be reinstated in March, on the assumption he stayed out of trouble. Smith's application still has to be approved by Commissioner Roger Goodell, which hasn't happened yet. He was released by the Niners in August 2015 following his fifth arrest since 2011 and third on suspicion of drunken driving.

Smith has missed 39 of a potential 64 games for the 49ers and Raiders over the past four seasons either under suspension or voluntary rehab.

Last month, it was learned that the 49ers had filed a lawsuit to recoup more than $341,000 in signing-bonus money stemming from Smith's nine-game 2014 suspension.
