Aldon Smith turned himself in Tuesday night after a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with an alleged battery in the New Orleans area, according to the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office.
The Seattle Seahawks defensive end was booked and released Wednesday on $25,000 bond. Smith is scheduled to be arraigned July 14.
An arrest warrant was issued for Smith on Monday for an alleged second-degree battery that occurred Saturday evening. Smith allegedly choked a victim unconscious during a confrontation that began inside a coffee shop in Chalmette, Louisiana.
Two days before the alleged incident, the Seahawks signed Smith, 31, to a one-year deal worth $1,127,500.
In a statement Monday, the Seahawks said, "We are aware of the reports regarding Aldon Smith. Aldon notified us and we are gathering more information. We have no further comment at this time."
