This is not good. According to TMZ Sports, San Francisco 49ers star pass-rusher Aldon Smith was arrested on Sunday after he reportedly said he had a bomb at the LAX airport. Smith got in a loud argument with an airport worker at the gate, and things didn't get any better after that.

The Sacramento Bee offers more details, as witnesses told the newspaper that it was Smith who was the suspect:

"The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding towards the gate area. Los Angeles Airport Police made contact with him at the gate and he was positively identified as the person in question. Once again the male subject became uncooperative and he was detained and taken into custody by Airport Police and is currently being transported to LAPD for booking," the Sacramento Bee writes.

The 49ers also released a statement on the news.

“We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith. As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment.”

This is not good news at all for Smith, who has had a large share of legal troubles in the past in his very short NFL career so far. If things don't improve for him, the 49ers have no reason but to let him go.
