Let’s hope not. One of the folks at the 49er linebacker’s June fiesta to which police were called has filed a lawsuit saying he was shot twice in the leg while being caught in the crossfire of a drunken gunfight that included both Smith and former 49er (and now Tennessee Titan) Delanie Walker. As you may recall, two people at the party were shot; Smith was stabbed.
But, oh gosh, what’s a little gunplay among NFLers when there’s football to play, as this adulatory piece about Smith in the Mercury News sports pages Monday attests. Hint: It leads with Smith inspiring students at his old high school in Missouri to pursue their dreams.
