Former 49ers FB Bruce Miller Facing 7 Felony Charges For Assault Of 70-Year-Old Man & His Son

Former 49ers FB Bruce Miller is facing seven felony charges for the recent incident in which he allegedly assaulted a 70-year-old man and his son before later being arrested.

Here are the charges against Miller, per Matthias Gafni:

  • 1 count of assault with a deadly weapon, not a firearm (cane)
  • 1 count of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury
  • 1 count of inflicting injury on an elder or dependent adult likely to cause great bodily injury
  • 1 count of battery with serious bodily injury
  • 2 counts of criminal threats
  • 1 count of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury
  • 1 count of battery (misdemeanor)

A video recently surfaced showing Miller with blood on his face and clearly disorientated.

The 49ers wasted little time in releasing him shortly after the news broke of the alleged assault.

According to the police report, Miller tried to check into the Fisherman’s Wharf Marriott Hotel, but was told the hotel was full and had no vacancies.

The report says that Miller later returned Monday morning and began knocked on one of the guest room doors. After opening the door, the guest told Miller he had the wrong room, and Miller responded by attacking the individual.

Miller reportedly punched a 70-man-old man in the face, which led to the man sustaining broken bones. Both individuals were taken to the hospital with Miller leaving the scene, but later being apprehended and arrested.

The two men were later taken to the hospital, and Miller was later arrested after fleeing the scene.

Miller, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2011. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $6.831 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.25 million for the 2016 season.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Miller will free up $290,625 in available cap space while creating $1,625,000 in dead money.

In 2015, Miller appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and ran for 14 yards on six carries to go along with 10 receptions for 135 yards receiving and one total touchdown.
