San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker Aldon Smith and his former teammate are named in a lawsuit filed Tuesday by a man who was shot at a party the NFL star hosted last year.

Ronndale Esporlas filed the lawsuit in Santa Clara County. The lawsuit claims Smith and former 49ers' tight end Delanie Walker repeatedly and illegally fired weapons on numerous occasions during the June 2012 party

Smith and his friends also charged $10 per person to enter the party, according to one of the victims.

Smith was stabbed at the party held in the East San Jose foothills.

The lawsuit also claims Smith and Walker consumed significant quantities of alcohol and were legally intoxicated. It also said the players knew the handguns were illegally possessed.

Smith and Walker appeared on the balcony of Smith's home to try and end the party and began to fire shots into the air, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims Walker then made his way to the driveway where he allegedly fired more shots into the air and toward others attending the party.


Smith's attorney was contacted Tuesday by NBC Bay Area but declined comment citing pending litigation.

Not worried at all. As much as Walker does for the community with drunk driving, he's certainly not a worrisome player. Over a year ago? Nothing will come of this.

Yeah, I'm skeptical anything will come of this.

Me too. At least Billy could put the title in quotes so we knew it was only an allegation, not established fact.

Show me the cell phone footage. Rolling Eyes
In this day and age, if this happened at a NFL player's home and the player and his fellow NFL teammate are firing shots off the balcony and in the driveway the cell phone footage would have been on TMZ.com within hours of the event. If I recall correctly it was several days before it came out that Smith was actually stabbed and I don't recall Walker's name being mentioned at all.

Move on, nothing to see here....



Good lord hope this isn't true. Article could be a bit more clear as well. Was the guy shot, or shot at (in his direction)? Will be interesting to see what happens. If they settle out of court could see a suspension from Goodell for both Smith & Walker.

I don't believe it and I won't believe it. Delanie Walker is a high character guy, and the fact that they didn't file the lawsuit until a year later makes me immediately question this entire accusation. My Adopt-A-Titan would never do this, and it's a shame that this story tries to put Delanie in a negative light.

SAN JOSE -- Only days before the start of the NFL season, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office is leaning toward prosecuting San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Aldon Smith on charges of possessing illegal assault rifles -- charges that carry a range of possible punishments, from probation to three years in jail


Quote:

Smith bought the weapons in Arizona where they are legal, but allegedly failed to modify them to comply with California's stricter gun laws, sources familiar with the case said. The three guns were discovered by Santa Clara County sheriff's deputies after a house party hosted by Smith and his roommate last summer, during which the linebacker was stabbed and two partygoers were shot by gang members who crashed the party.


Quote:

Ballistics tests indicate that Esporlas and another man were not shot by Walker or Smith. Deputies have yet to identify the shooters in the ongoing investigation. But alleged gang member Steven Barda, 27, is in custody on charges of stabbing Smith, who sustained only minor wounds.



Update in the News forum.


Looks good for Delanie, bad for Aldon Smith.

The rifles were not Walker's and ballistic tests proved that he couldn't have shot the 2 guys that were wounded.

Worst case scenario he gets in trouble for firing the gun I imagine. Though at this point I'm not sure there is any proof of that happening.

I think his punishment would come from Goodell at most... and we all know Roger doesn't need actual proof to suspend someone.

True. Seems like this whole situation is more Aldon than Delanie though. And Delanie is seen as a high character guy around the league and that plays a role in Goodell suspensions imo.
