NFL player ‘assaulted boyfriend over soy sauce’
A former American National Football League (NFL) player has been charged with attacking his ex-boyfriend during an argument regarding soy sauce and underwear.
The Daily Journal reports that former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Kwame Harris (pictured) was to appear in San Mateo County Superior Court in San Francisco yesterday, on charges he assaulted his former boyfriend at a restaurant.
Harris, 30, is charged with felony counts of domestic violence causing great bodily injury and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury in the incident which allegedly took place in August last year.
The ex-boyfriend, Dimitri Geier, is suing Harris civilly for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Harris was said to have become upset when Geier poured soy sauce on a plate of rice, according to the suit filed in the court. He allegedly later pulled the other man’s pants down and accused him of stealing his underwear.
Harris pleaded not guilty but was held to answer after a preliminary hearing last year. His appearance in court yesterday was reportedly for a pretrial conference to either settle the case or confirm a jury trial hearing.
