49ers TE Bruce Miller Arrested for Assault, Released from Team



Another day, another arrest for a San Francisco 49er. On Labor Day, September 5th, 49ers FB Bruce Miller was arrested for punching a 70-year old man in the face. He is charged with assault with a deadly weapon, battery, and criminal threats, as reported by KTVU.

The 49ers have had recurring issues with players being arrested.

Miller was a promising talent on the 49ers’ roster. His biggest asset and advantage to the Niners was perhaps his versatility and flexibility. He would have been able to play many positions in Chip Kelly’s new structure.

According to Sports Illustrated, Bruce Miller was at a completely occupied Fisherman Wharf’s Marriott Hotel on Sunday night. He went to random rooms and knocked on doors. Miller attacked a 70-year old man and his son who told him Miller had the wrong room. Both guests of the hotel were taken to the hospital.

The 49ers wasted no time, and consequently decided to release Miller.

The 49er fans will definitely miss energetic plays like this from the fullback. As promising as Miller looked, there is absolutely no excuse for his conduct.
