49ers' Bruce Miller pleads no contest to charge of disturbing the peace

49ers fullback Bruce Miller, who was arrested on suspicion of spousal abuse in March and has been absent from the team's offseason program, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace on Tuesday.

“The 49ers organization is aware of today's proceedings involving Bruce Miller,” general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. “Bruce knows what we expect of him as a member of this team and he has committed to taking the necessary steps to grow from this experience.”

Miler had been charged with misdemeanor vandalism after he and his then-fiancee were involved in an argument in a parking garage in Santa Clara, according to a May release from the Santa Clara District Attorney's Office.

As part of his plea bargain, Miller must attend a 16-week domestic violence counseling course. He may not have any contact with his accuser, with whom he is no longer engaged, until he is sentenced at the conclusion of his course.
