San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller was reportedly arrested after he allegedly punched an elderly man during a dispute at a hotel Monday morning, San Francisco police told local media.

Miller allegedly tried to enter a hotel room and attacked a man, according to CBS Sacramento. San Francisco police said the man’s father attempted to help his son, which led to the incident with Miller.

The Fisherman's Wharf Marriott Hotel confirmed an “overnight altercation” to BuzzFeed News, but declined to comment.

The San Francisco Police Department did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment.

The San Francisco 49ers told BuzzFeed News in a statement that it is “aware of the media report regarding Bruce Miller.”

“We are gathering the relevant facts of this matter and will continue to monitor the situation,” it added.

Miller was arrested last year on spousal battery charges. He later plead no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace and was required to undergo domestic violence counseling, according to The Mercury News.
