Smith has had multiple run-ins with police over the course of his NFL career.
The 49ers released him in August 2015 after a run-in with police for the fifth time and he was suspended for one year during the 2015 season after he was signed by the Raiders. He was never granted reinstatement after applying in 2016.
The Raiders released Smith in March 2018 after San Francisco police were searching for him in connection with a domestic violence allegation. He pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors in connection with the incident, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
