The San Francisco 49ers released long-time fullback Bruce Miller after authorities arrested him for assault in San Francisco, the team announced Monday.

The Sacramento Bee reported that Miller was charged with battery and assault of the a deadly weapon, which wasn’t a firearm. The paper reported that he’s also facing charges of aggravated assault, elder abuse, threats and battery.

According to KTVU, Miller allegedly attacked a man at the Fisherman’s Wharf Marriott Hotel and his 70-year-old father. The station reported that Miller tried to check into the hotel Sunday, but there were no available rooms.

KTVU reported that Miller went to a guest’s room and was told he had the wrong room. Miller then attacked the guest and his father who got into the fight to help his son.

It’s unclear what punishment he’s going to face from the league. Miller pleaded no contest to a disturbing the peace charge after he was arrested for domestic violence in 2015.
