Bruce Miller, the newly released San Francisco 49ers fullback who was arrested for assault and elder abuse, was caught on surveillance video moments after the incident near Fisherman’s Wharf.
Police said Miller tried to enter the wrong room at the Marriott Hotel and got into an altercation with a 70-year-old man and his 29-year-old son. Miller beat both men so badly, they required hospitalization.

A judge sentenced Daniele Watts and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas, to 15 hours of community labor after deeming their court imposed apology letters insincere.

Daniele Watts, the “Django Unchained” actress who accused an LAPD officer of racism after being detained for public lewdness, was in the end ordered by a judge to apologize.
Watts, who appeared in court, pled no contest to disturbing the peace. In exchange for her plea, the more serious criminal charges were dropped. The actress was then ordered to complete 40 hours of community service and write an apology letter to Sgt. Parker and his two partners.

Robert Schiavelli’s life is tough enough due to neurological problems and frequent seizures, but his neighbor was about to make it a living hell after phoning authorities and complaining that Robert was – laughing too loudly.
“I didn’t know it was a crime to laugh out a window,” said Schiavelli, 42, after receiving not one, but two different infractions for “disturbing the peace,” and if he doesn’t pony-up the dough, $250 to be exact, he will be forced to spend 15 days in jail, per ticket.
Schiavelli, who lives with his mother due to neurological problems and frequent seizures, says his next-door neighbor regularly teases him about being disabled,
“What are you supposed to do when someone calls you a retard?” Schiavelli asked the New York Post rhetorically.
Schiavelli had to hire an attorney who called the whole thing absurd, “My client faces 30 days in jail for laughing,” he said. “I will never let him take a plea on this.”
The judge who presided over Schiavelli’s arraignment yesterday said he was “not so inclined” to throw the charges out. A second court date has yet to be scheduled.
