49ers Release Fullback Bruce Miller Hours After Assault Arrest

Bruce Miller effectively ended his NFL career on Labor Day weekend. The San Francisco 49ers released the 5-year veteran fullback following an arrest outside a San Francisco hotel early Monday morning. Miller tried to check into a hotel, but was told there were no vacancies. He then knocked on a random door and ended up assaulting a father and his son who was staying in the next room. After that confrontation, Miller went across the street where he sat on the steps of another hotel and was seen bloodied and throwing up on security footage. An employee there called the police and Miller was arrested.

According to USA TODAY,  Miller was charged with two counts of criminal threats, one of assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor battery.

Miller, a Central Florida product who was drafted by the 49ers in the 7th round of the 2011 NFL Draft, appeared in 77 of 80 regular season games in his 5-year career. Following this incident, it’s unlikely the 29-year old ever plays in the NFL again.
