SANTA CLARA — Linebacker Aldon Smith is missing at least some of the 49ers' activities Wednesday at training camp while attending a hearing with the Los Angeles City Attorney's office, stemming from his April arrest at Los Angeles International Airport.
The City Attorney's office announced July 1 it would not file criminal charges for allegedly making a false bomb threat and instead would hold the hearing with the involved parties.
Coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed Smith's absence but would not elaborate, noting: "He's going through a process."
Smith was sentenced July 18 in Santa Clara County Superior Court to 12 days of work release with the sheriff's department and three years probation, a result of his no-contest pleas to illegal weapons possessions and drunk driving.
Smith has been one of the 49ers' most dominant players not just through three seasons but also since training camp began last week.
