San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith could soon be facing criminal charges for a recent incident where he allegedly made comments about a bomb at Los Angeles International Airport.  

County prosecutors say they have turned the case over to the Los Angeles Prosecutor's office, which is looking into possible misdemeanor charges.  

Smith was arrested earlier this month at LAX after he allegedly made a comment about having a bomb at a TSA screening station.  

The 49ers have said they are disappointed to learn of the incident but are still trying to gather more information.
