49ers Release Fullback Bruce Miller After He Allegedly Beat The Piss Out Of A Senior Citizen

The 49ers have released their fullback of four years in Bruce Miller after he was arrested in San Francisco Monday morning for allegedly sending a 29-year-old man and his 70-year-old father to the hospital.

According to KTVU,

Miller allegedly tried to check into the Fisherman’s Wharf Marriott Hotel on Sunday night, but was told the hotel was full.

Sources say he returned Monday morning and knocked on one of the guest room doors.

The room was occupied by an elderly couple who did not know Miller.

The neighboring guest, the couple’s 29-year-old son, told Miller that he had the wrong room.

That’s when Miller allegedly began attacking him. The man’s father came to his son’s aid, and was also attacked by Miller.

Sources say the 70-year-old man was punched in the face and suffered broken bones.

Both father and son were transported to the hospital.

Here’s a surveillance video from the hotel across the street where Miller ran after the incident.

Beating up an old dude and puking on yourself afterwards sounds like the work of a someone whose hit rock bottom.

The 9ers wasted no time in tweeting about Miller’s release.

This isn’t Miller’s first run in with the law. In June of 2015, he pleaded no-contest to a misdemeanor domestic-violence charge against his fiancee that allegedly occurred that March.

Miller was drafted in the seventh round of the 2011 draft.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
