SAN FRANCISCO  — Former 49ers and Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith is being held on $500,000 bail Sunday by the San Francisco Sherriff’s Department following another arrest.

Smith, according to TMZ Sports, was arrested for violating conditions of his bail.

At his arraignment Thursday, Smith faced three charges of violating a protective order. It was originally issued March 12 stemming from a March 3 domestic violence charge. He failed to appear in court on March 23.

Smith’s fiancee, Shawna McKnight, issued the following statement to TMZ Sports: “Unfortunately through these circumstances Aldon and I are no longer together.  Although it’s with a heavy heart I truly wish him the best and pray that he gets the help he needs, I will always have love for him but at this point I’m simply the victim in this ongoing case.”

Under indefinite suspension by the NFL, Smith, 28, has not played since 2015. He was released by the Raiders after his most recent arrest.
