The specifics of what exactly happened are unknown.
Smith has not been arrested.
The NFL however, will be interested in the details, given Smith's banished status under the league's policy on substance abuse.
Aldon Smith's latest legal issues could end his tenure with the Raiders.
Smith spent his first four years in the National Football League with the San Francisco 49ers, who released him after he was arrested on hit-and-run, driving under the influence and vandalism charges in the summer of 2015.
According to TMZ, the case is under active investigation. After filing for his reinstatement in the fall, Smith will be eligible to be reinstated in March as long as he remains out of trouble.
Smith filed for reinstatement on October 3 before meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell.
The reason it's been so hard for Smith to get reinstated is because he has a prior history.
Raiders owner Mark Davis has said "we can't have it on our team" in reference to domestic violence, although it remains unclear if Smith has violated that edict and if the Raiders are going to have a decision to make on Smith's future with the team anytime soon.
Smith also was suspended for nine games in 2014. His current banishment stems from an August 2015 incident that brought misdemeanor charges of DUI, hit and run and vandalism and ultimately got him released by the 49ers. He signed a new two-year contract last offseason.
The linebacker was allowed to apply for reinstatement after one year, which he did in November 2016.
