San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will not be charged with a felony for his alleged “false report of a bomb threat” at Los Angeles International Airport.
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced in a press release Thursday it has passed Smith’s case to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for misdemeanor consideration, CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco is reporting.
Smith was originally booked for a felony charge on April 13 after he became “belligerent and uncooperative” with TSA agents after being randomly selected for secondary screening, according to LAX Police. He was released that day upon posting $20,000 bail.
Smith is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday to face unrelated charges of three felony counts of possessing illegal assault rifles along with a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge stemming from a September 2013 incident.
