Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith turned himself in Tuesday morning after investigators secured a warrant for his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence and other offenses, according to San Francisco police.

Smith, 28, surrendered to investigators with the Police Department’s special victims unit without incident, according to Officer Giselle Linnanne.

Police had responded about 8:30 p.m. Saturday to a home in the 600 block of Bush Street after someone reported that Smith was involved in a domestic violence offense.

Police said the victim suffered injuries not considered life-threatening during the incident. Smith left before officers arrived but eventually surrendered today.

Smith was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, assault with great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism. He was being held on $30,000 bail as of this afternoon, according to the San Francisco County Sheriff’s Department.

The Raiders released Smith from his contract Monday after the domestic violence allegations surfaced.

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 signed with the Raiders the following month, but was suspended for a year in November 2015 for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policies.
