San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller was arrested last Thursday night for allegedly pushing a female to the ground at a Santa Clara shopping center, according to police.
The Santa Clara Police Department released details on Thursday that led to Miller’s misdemeanor arrest on a charge of battery on a spouse or co-habitant. He was released from Santa Clara County jail on $10,000 bail.
The results of the investigation were forwarded this week to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office for consideration of filing possible criminal charges. A placeholder arraignment date has been set for April 20.
According to a summary of the arrest obtained by CSNBayArea.com, police responded to a call of a disturbance at 10:33 p.m. at the Rivermark Plaza, approximately two miles from Levi’s Stadium.
“Investigation revealed the suspect and victim were in a verbal argument,” according to the report. “The suspect pushed the victim causing her to fall to the ground and destroyed her cell phone. The suspect was arrested.”
The identity of the alleged victim was not disclosed in the report. Miller was arrested at 11:55 p.m. on March 5, and booked into jail at 12:11 a.m. on Friday, March 6.
On Wednesday, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the organization has taken no action against Miller, 27, a four-year veteran after the team selected him in the 2011 draft.
“We’ve been in contact with Bruce,” Baalke said. “We started the process internally. We’re going to continue to gather information. That’s really all I can say at this time.
“Any time any one of our players gets in any type of situation off the field, there’s a process that we go through internally. We understand the gravity of where we’re at.”
