    SFPD released the following statement on Monday afternoon:

    "On Sept. 5, 2016 at approximately 2:45 AM, San Francisco Police responded to a hotel on the 1200 blk. of Columbus Ave. in the Central District on the report of an intoxicated person. The suspect, later identified as 29 year old male Bruce Miller, was attempting to enter a hotel room that was not his. The room was occupied by an elderly couple (70 year old male and 66 year old female) both of whom do not know Miller. The neighboring guest, the couple's son (29 years old), informed Miller he was at the wrong room when Miller charged at him starting a physical confrontation. The father came to his son's defense when he was punched by Miller. Both the father and son were transported to the hospital for their injuries. Miller‎ was later located across the street at a different hotel and arrested on charges of aggravated assault, elder abuse, threats, and battery; he has been booked into San Francisco County Jail and has been cooperative in the investigation."

    The 49ers released Miller less than two hours after acknowledging they were aware of his arrest.
