No charges for 49ers' Smith in LA airport incident

LOS ANGELES (AP) San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will not face charges related to his arrest earlier this year at Los Angeles International Airport.

The city attorney's office said in a statement Tuesday that it declined to charge the 24-year-old but will require him to come to a meeting to discuss what happened and be admonished about applicable laws.

Smith was taken into custody April 13 after authorities said he became belligerent during a random security screening and threatened that he had a bomb.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office subsequently referred the case to the city attorney's office for misdemeanor consideration.

In May, Smith pleaded no contest in San Francisco to three felony weapons charges and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.
