Aldon Smith denied claims that it was him smoking marijuana during a Periscope session on Sunday night. He tweeted:
Aldon Smith should probably stay away from social media for a while.
The Raiders linebacker, who is currently serving a one-year suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, may have added fuel to the drug fire. A video from an account connected to the NFL star is making its rounds on the Internet, showing a person smoking what appears to be marijuana.
Although the person’s face is not shown in the Periscope video entitled “Fire Up Session,” you can hear a male voice say, “They don’t know it’s me; it’s not like I put Aldon Smith.” In the clip, there’s also a woman’s voice present, saying, “You shouldn’t even be posting that,” to which the male replies, “Do you see my face?”
The troubled star was suspended in November for violating the NFL’s policy on substance abuse. In September, Smith, 26, pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run, drunken driving, and vandalism.
He has yet to speak out against the video.
Check out the footage above.
