In the past few days, the news around the San Francisco 49ers has all centered around Colin Kaepernick and his decision not to stand for the national anthem before games.
Well, it seems like the quarterback might be getting some respite from all that attention for the next couple of days after one of his teammates got arrested earlier today and for a crime that is harrowing to read.
According to a report from in the Bay Area, 49ers tight end Bruce Miller was arrested by police after reportedly assaulting two men in a hotel - one of whom was 70-years-old.

Apparently, Miller tried to check into a Marriott Hotel in San Francisco on Sunday night but was turned away after being told that the hotel was full and there were no spare rooms.
It seems that answer wasn't good enough for the former seventh-round pick out of Central Florida, who returned to the very same hotel on Monday morning and knocked on one of the guest rooms at the Marriott.
"The guest opened the door and informed Miller that he had the wrong room," the report states. "That's when Miller allegedly began attacking the guest. The guest's father, who was also staying in the room, came to his son's aid, and was also attacked by Miller."
"Sources say that man, who is 70-years-old, was punched in the face and suffered broken bones."
Both the father and the son were taken to a local hospital and treated for their injuries. Miller is said to have fled the scene before being apprehended and arrested earlier today.
Matt Keller of ABC7 News seemed to confirm the arrest, but not what it was for.
Miller was arrested in March of this year on suspicion of spousal battery. He was accused of pushing his then-fiancée to ground and breaking her phone.
