Ex-49er Bruce Miller faces seven felony charges

Bruce Miller, who was cut by the 49ers this week after he was arrested and accused of attacking a father and son, has been charged with seven felonies in connection with the incident.

The felonies Miller is charged with are one count of assault with a deadly weapon, not a firearm (weapon alleged is a cane); one count of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury; one count of inflicting injury on an elder or dependent adult likely to cause great bodily injury; one count of battery with serious bodily injury; two counts of criminal threats; one count of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury.

Miller allegedly tried to get into a San Francisco hotel room where an elderly couple was staying. Police said that when the couple’s son, staying in the next room, approached Miller to tell him he had the wrong room, Miller attacked him. The father then came out of the room to try to defend his son, and Miller attacked the father as well, according to police.

Last year Miller was also accused of a violent crime, spousal battery, although he later pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor disturbing the peace charge when his fiancée said there was no physical contact. The 49ers stood behind Miller through that incident but cut him loose almost immediately after this arrest.

    He was just upset when he realized he was in the wrong city…..give the guy a break…does anybody really want to play football in Santa Clara?

    That’s cold, beating up an old man with his own cane.

    It’s bad enough he attacked a 70 year old man, but he had to use a weapon?!?

    He couldn’t find reason to kick the old lady or something too in order to get the number of felonies to an even 10? Seven felony counts is just a standards Saturday night in the City by the Bay.

    im guessing they all will be pleaded down to misdemeanors and he will get sued as he should. He also deserves prison. Niner or not you can not be a drunken idiot for no reason.

    “The 49ers stood behind Miller through that incident saw that there was a tape this time but so they decided to cut him loose almost immediately after this arrest.”

    Fixed that for you…

    Blackouts usually have consequences…sometimes 7

    Without knowing anything about Miller, it sounds like he has some mental illness issues. If he wasn’t drunk or high on something, that behavior is just not normal.

    Sadly, there will be far less people outraged about this as there are about the national athem and a right to protest.

    This IDIOT broke bones in a 70 year old man’s face. Lock this ANIMAL up and throw away the friggin’ key!

    Good. Bubba and his pals in the State Pen will be a little harder target than he’s gotten used to.

    Sweet guy.

    The old “hurt-a-cane”.
    You know things escalated quickly when you are beating a 70 year old with his own cane.

    The influence of Nappy Kappy has already started to destroy this locker room. Look for more of the same from SF this year. Too bad, because it used to be the class of the bay. Now they make the Raiders look good….
