49ers’ FB Bruce Miller Charged With Misdemeanor Vandalism, Not Assault



The Santa Clara County District Attorney Office today announced that San Francisco 49ers FB Bruce Miller is being charged with misdemeanor vandalism instead of the alleged assault against his fiancee.

49ers’ GM Trent Baalke released a statement saying: “The 49ers organization is aware of today’s developments involving Bruce Miller and will continue to monitor these legal proceedings closely.”

Miller who was being investigated for allegedly pushing his girlfriend at the Rivermark Plaza in Santa Clara was found to be inconclusive. However, he is being charged with throwing a cell phone against an exterior wall causing property damage which warrants the misdemeanor vandalism charge.

Miller, 27, is to be arraigned Monday at 1:30 p.m., and he faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
