Rookie defensive end Aldon Smith of the 49ers was arrested and booked into jail on DUI charges Saturday morning in Miami.
According to various reports, Smith, 22, was booked into jail at 9:32 a.m. EST and released on $1,000 bond.
The 49ers released a statement saying they were aware of Smith's arrest: "We take these issues very seriously, but will reserve further comment at this time, as this is an ongoing legal matter. The 49ers will continue to gather the facts and monitor the developments closely."
Smith's arrest in Miami Beach came less than a week after he capped a debut season that included 14 regular-season sacks, the second-most by a rookie in NFL history. The No. 7 overall pick in the draft, Smith added two sacks in San Francisco's two postseason games. Smith was a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Month and is a candidate to be named the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year, an award that will be announced Friday.
Smith is subject to a fine or suspension if he is found to have violated the NFL's personal conduct policy.
