San Francisco 49er Aldon Smith Sued For Shooting at His Home

Aldon Smith, a San Francisco 49er all-pro linebacker and his former teammate Delanie Walker were named in a lawsuit filed against the players by a man who was shot at a party held at the NFL star’s home last year.

Ronndale Esporlas filed the lawsuit in Santa Clara County on Tuesday. The lawsuit claims Smith and Walker repeatedly fired illegal guns multiple time during the June 2012 party.

It was reported that Smith and Walker consumed significant amounts of alcohol and were legally intoxicated and that the players knew the handguns were illegally obtained.

Smith charged $10 per person to enter the party, according to a party-goer. In an attempt to disperse the party, Smith and Walker appeared on the balcony of Smith’s home and began firing shots into the air. 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 was also stabbed at the party, held in the East San Jose foothills, but was not seriously injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
