A College Station man was arrested Friday after authorities said he entered a home, pulled a man out of bed and beat him.

According to College Station police, authorities were dispatched to a home on Highlands Street in College Station around 10:15 a.m. There, a man with visible injuries to his face and arm said his roommate and Jacob David Miller, 20, had just returned from a hunting trip. While the roommate unloaded his truck, he told Miller to not enter the home. Police said Miller picked up a metal pipe, went inside and entered the victim’s bedroom. He then pulled the victim out of bed and began punching and kicking him, a report notes.

The victim said Miller did not like him because he had been involved with Miller’s girlfriend before the two were dating, police said. Miller was located nearby and admitted entering the home and assaulting the victim, whom he said did not fight back, according to authorities.

Miller is charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. He was released from the Brazos County Jail on $10,000 bond.

GARY DROST

Only burglary? He went in there to assault someone, so why wasn't he also charged with assault and battery? That's the real crime he committed.
