San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will not be charged in the Los Angeles Airport incident on April 13 for false reporting of a bomb threat.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will not be charged in the Los Angeles Airport incident on April 13. 

The dismissal of criminal charges stems from Smith's alleged bomb threats at the airport, per CSN Bay Area's Matt Maioco's July 1 report: 

"San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will not face any charges in connection to an alleged bomb threat he made at Los Angeles International Airport in April, authorities said on Tuesday. 

"In lieu of filing criminal charges, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office will set an office hearing on July 30 to address the matter. The 49ers open training camp on July 23. 

"The hearing is administered by members of the City Attorney's office in which all parties are scheduled to attend to give their account of the incident, according to Frank Mateljan of the City Attorney's office. 

"'The individuals are admonished about the applicable laws and given suggestions on how to avoid similar incidents in the future,' Mateljan said via email. 'While the City Attorney reserves the right to file charges up to one year following the incident, no further action is scheduled beyond the office hearing.'

"LAX Police detained Smith on April 13 after he passed through airport security. He was arrested for allegedly making a false report of a bomb threat to a TSA agent. Smith told 49ers officials he never said the word 'bomb,' a source previously told CSNBayArea.com. 

Smith was originally booked on April 13 for a felony charge. He was released later that day on a $20,000 bail. Two weeks later, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office referred the case to the L.A. City Attorney's Office for misdemeanor consideration. 

"In comments to CSN BAyArea.com on May 16, Smith said, 'A lot of these things are being painted in a picture that's not true.'"

In spite of the Los Angeles Airport issue behind him, Smith has another legal issue to take on. 

According to ESPN's Bill Williamson, Smith "will be sentenced July 25 for pleading no contest to three felony gun charges and could face jail time. The NFL could also suspend him."

Williamson weighed in on Smith's legal troubles in a separate July 1 ESPN blog

"Aldon Smith avoided charges for allegedly making a fake bomb threat at LAX in April. 

"However, he must learn from the incident. The San Francisco 49ers' star linebacker has to realize that he has to do the right thing every day and his actions are going to be closely watched. 

"Smith put himself in this situation by having several off-field issues since entering the NFL three years ago.

 

"In truth, even if misdemeanor charges were filed in Los Angeles, Smith would still have much bigger issues to contend with. But at least they are being addressed, and he does have a chance to soon get a clean slate. He will be sentenced July 25 for pleading no contest to three felony gun charges. He could face jail time. The NFL could also suspend him, as well."
