SAN FRANCISCO (AP/KRON) — Hours before former 49er Bruce Miller was arrested for assault, a manager at a San Francisco restaurant says he had to kick him out after the player got in a fight over a sandwich.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports no one was hurt in the fight early Monday.
Tommy’s Joynt Manager Eddie Martin tells KRON4 he was not there when Miller came into the restaurant, but saw the surveillance footage.
Miller went into the line, but did not order, Martin said.
The ex-49er player asked guests to buy him a sandwich. He was getting loud and disruptive which is when restaurant employees asked him to leave, Martin said.
Miller was wearing the same clothes he was arrested in.
He appeared to be alone and was not bleeding at the time, Martin said.
Later Monday police were called to a hotel after Miller tried to enter the room of an elderly couple. The couple’s adult son, staying in the next room, told Miller he was at the wrong room.
Police say an intoxicated Miller attacked the son and punched his 70-year-old father. Both men were taken to the hospital. Later that afternoon, the 49ers released Miller from the team.
