Bruce Miller arrested for spousal battery, 49ers reportedly interested in Greg Hardy

49ers fullback Bruce Miller was arrested for spousal battery Thursday, according to an arrest log on the Santa Clara Police Department’s website. According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the Santa Clara PD confirmed the arrest and has turned the investigation over to the district attorney’s office.

The 49ers released a statement acknowledging their fullback’s situation:

“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Bruce Miller. We were disappointed to learn of these reports and will do our due diligence in collecting all relevant information.”

This comes on the heels of a tough two days for the 49ers. It was widely reported Sunday that Frank Gore will not be returning, and Monday morning brought the news that both Patrick Willis and Justin Smith are considering retirement.

Miller, 27, has been an important piece of the 49ers’ offense over the last four seasons. The team will be faced with a tough decision moving forward, especially in light of defensive end Ray McDonald’s domestic violence allegations in 2014.

Speaking of tough decisions, the Miller news comes on the heels of Jason Cole’s report on Greg Hardy. Once Hardy is taken off of the commissioner’s exempt list — there’s probably going to be a hearing tomorrow to determine whether he’ll be suspended, according to Cole — the 49ers are one of five teams that have “projected themselves out from the rest of the NFL … that are interested in the guy who’s probably the No. 1 talented pass rusher who’s available in free agency right now, but obviously has some strings attached.”

The strings, via Deadspin:

Former Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy’s domestic abuse trial was supposed to start this morning, but the case was dismissed when Hardy’s accuser, Nicole Holder, did not show up to testify.

Hardy was convicted on counts of assault and communicating threats by a district judge last summer, but was assigned a jury trial after appealing that conviction. Prosecutors said that multiple attempts to contact Holder have failed, and so the case was dismissed this morning before the trial even started.

I finally figured out what’s actually happening. 
Jed York is working on a book entitled “How to destroy a successful NFL franchise in less than a calendar year – for Dummies”. There can be no other logical explanation.

I wonder if OJ has anything left in the tank? He’s been resting for quite awhile and in comparison he could make the other trouble NINERS look like pretty decent guys.

What a complete joke this organization is turning into! Not because they are interested in someone as good as Hardy, but rather that they are considering him after all of Jed York’s talk about “class”. Somehow the 49ers, just a couple years removed from the Raiders, are diving head first into at the very least the organizational cellar. 

If its true about Miller, he should be cut immediately. By the way, if anyone thinks Greg Hardy’s case was not that bad, Google the details….

Being born in The City, I’ll root for any San Francisco team.
The “Forty Niners” are no longer a San Francisco team.
Go Giants!

This is the first caucasian 9er caught acting a fool recently.  Checking out the comments below, there’s a lot less of the, “what a monster, cut him immediately,” rhetoric.  I wonder why.
