San Francisco 49ers release fullback Bruce Miller after arrest for violent assault.

The 49ers have released fullback Bruce Miller after he was arrested on Monday morning for reportedly assaulting a father and his son at a hotel in San Francisco, reports indicate.

Police informed California’s KTVU that Miller attempted to check into the Fisherman’s Wharf Marriott on Sunday night, but was turned away by hotel staff because no vacant rooms were available.

Miller reportedly went back to the hotel on Monday morning and knocked on a guest’s door. When the occupant opened the door and told Miller that he had the wrong room, the NFL player allegedly assaulted the man and his 70-year-old father, who was also in the hotel room at the time of the incident.

According to KTVU, the father was punched in the face before he and his son were transported to a local hospital. Miller immediately fled the scene but was later located and arrested by police.

The fullback has played his first five seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers and reportedly had prior tendencies for violent behavior.

Last year, Bruce Miller supposedly grabbed his then fiancee’s phone during a fight and smashed it against a wall in a parking garage in California. He would plead no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace and was required to complete a 16-week domestic violence course after the woman reported that there was no physical contact.

Miller posted a picture at a bar on Sunday to his 41,000 Instagram followers with a caption that read, “Sunday’s are for the boys.”

Following the arrest, the San Francisco 49ers promptly released Bruce Miller on Monday afternoon, distancing themselves from another headache after quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s choice to protest police brutality by sit during the national anthem.

The 49ers were plagued by off the field problems by players the last two years. All-Pro linebacker was released last season after a series of DUI arrests.

The team also cut ties with defensive lineman Ray Mc Donald after prosecutors in California charged him with domestic battery and false imprisonment stemming from an incident where he allegedly assaulted his former fiance.

The San Francisco 49ers will begin its regular season on September 12th at home against the Rams.
