According to a screenshot in a tweet from California Representative Eric Swallwell, Miller has threatened him over Instagram with the message below:

Per NBC’s Raj Mathai, Swallwell notified Capitol Police of the message and said the following:

My family and staff are deeply disturbed by the threat of execution…apparently by former 49er Bruce Miller. Threats of political violence are unacceptable.

Miller played for the 49ers from 2011 through 2015, but was released in 2016 on a couple of charges.

In 2015, he Miller plead no contest to a disturbing the peace misdemeanor after destroying a cell phone that belonged to his girlfriend.
