FB Bruce Miller arrested for spousal battery
According to multiple reports, 49ers fullback Bruce Miller was arrested last Thursday in Santa Clara on charges of spousal abuse.
“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Bruce Miller,” the team said in a release, via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “We were disappointed to learn of these reports and will do our due diligence in collecting all relevant information.”
The NFL has increased dramatically its approach to allegations of domestic violence, via a new personal-conduct policy. Miller ultimately could be placed on the Commissioner-Exempt list pending resolution of the case, with a potential suspension coming after the prosecution ends.
The 49ers acquired Miller in the seventh round of the 2011 draft. He has appeared in all but three career regular-season games, with 42 career starts.
