The arraignment for a former San Francisco 49ers player accused of attacking a 70-year-old hotel guest has been postponed to Nov. 2.
Bruce Miller, who recently played tight end for the 49ers, appeared briefly in San Francisco Superior Court on Friday.
The San Francisco District Attorney's Office on Thursday charged Miller with seven felonies stemming from the attack, including assault with a deadly weapon - the weapon being a cane.
The remaining charges, according to District Attorney spokesman Max Szabo, include: one count of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, one count of inflicting injury on an elder, one count of battery with serious bodily injury, two counts of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, and one count of battery. The last count is a misdemeanor. The others are felonies.
Several of the charges carry elder abuse enhancements, Szabo said. The older man suffered a black eye and possible facial bone fractures, according to San Francisco General Hospital. He was discharged earlier this week.
Miller declined to comment to reporters after he posted bail on Monday, hours after police arrested him for allegedly punching a 70-year-old hotel guest, and his 29-year-old son at the Fisherman's Wharf Marriott earlier that day. He was found vomiting and bleeding across the street from the Marriott at the Travelodge, where a manager there called 911 and provided some surveillance video of the arrest.
