The Big O is headed to the big house. 

Former NBA player Oliver Miller has reportedly been sentenced to a year in jail after he was convicted of first-degree assault for arrested for pistol-whipping a man at a Maryland barbecue back in April. 

HometownAnnapolis.com has the details.
[Judge Paul A.] Hackner sentenced Miller to five years of prison, suspending all but one year. He recommended work release and ordered five years of probation upon release. Miller is to have no contact with the victim, Jason Ray Worley, 32, and must complete anger management. His attorney, Paul Mack, called the sentence reasonable.

Prosecutors say at least three people saw Miller, known as "The Big O" during his nine-season NBA career, attack his girlfriend's brother, Worley, in front of the victim's home on Birchcrest Court in Arnold on April 17.

Deputy State's Attorney Thomas Fleckenstein said Miller got out of his car and "blindsided" Worley while he talked to his sister - Miller's girlfriend - using a handgun to repeatedly strike Worley in the face and head.
Miller, 41, plead guilty to the first-degree assault charge in November. He was facing up to 25 years in prison but had no prior convictions. 

Miller, who has reportedly tipped the scales at more than 400 pounds, played nine seasons in the NBA, averaging 7.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. The journeyman center played for the Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves.

Just another NBA gangsta. For an encore he will car-jack his girlfriend's mother when he gets out.

I expect better from former NBA bust draft picks that somehow got sweet contracts back in the day.  Shame on you Oliver.  At least AC Earl had a 40 points in a game one time.  Former busts should do amazing things one time in their lifetime, not petty crimes.

Report: Miller gets year in jail for pistol whip

Man Oliver Miller was a force back in the day playing for Orlando and prior to that Nolan Richardson at Arkansas. His girl friends brother must have really pissed Oliver off. He pistol whipped the man more than once. What site to see. I bet the brother had been previously running his mouth and talking trash to Oliver. I bet he will keep his mouth shut now. BIG O you will be fine in jail just workout and lift weight and get your swole on and keep to yourself and you will be alright and when you get out you will be physically fit! I know your girl friends brother was running his mouth and he got what he deserved!

Oliver Miller gets year in jail for pistol whip

A400 pound, 6'8, 41 year old man pistol whipping a 32 year old man? That's pathetic! Mind you, at 400 pounds if Miller would've got into a fist fight with the guy he probably would've had to grab his chest (I don't mean his manboobs) because of the massive heart attack he'd have. Have fun in jail Oliver, it'll be the best Jenny Craig diet he could've hoped for.
