49ers fullback Bruce Miller pleads no contest to misdemeanor disturbing the peace
San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller, arrested for suspicion of spousal abuse in March, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor disturbing the peace today.
Miller was charged with misdemeanor vandalism following an argument with his wife in a parking garage where he allegedly destroyed her cell phone by throwing it against a wall.
He must now attend a 16-week domestic violence counseling course and not have any contact with his wife during that time. He may not complete the course for six months.
Miller remains on the team.
"The 49ers organization is aware of today's proceedings involving Bruce Miller," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "Bruce knows what we expect of him as a member of this team and he has committed to taking the necessary steps to grow from this experience."
