This story will come off both shocking and a little awkward, even though nothing should shock us in this day and time. BlackSportsOnline is reporting that former 49ers and Stanford offensive tackle Kwame Harris has been charged with beating up his ex-boyfriend over spilled soy sauce and a pair of boxers.
The alleged victim,and ex-boyfriend, Dimitri Geier, also has filed a civil lawsuit against Harris for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Here is what Geier says happened.
Harris and his alleged victim had been in a romantic relationship but were no longer involved when they met at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.
Harris was to drive Geier to San Francisco International Airport but instead became upset when he poured soy sauce on a plate of rice, according to the suit filed in San Mateo County Superior Court.
The men argued for approximately seven minutes and Harris said he would no longer take Geier to the airport, the suit states.
As the men left to remove Geier’s belongings from Harris’ car so that he could instead take a cab, Harris tried pulling the other man’s pants down and accused him of stealing his underwear, according to the suit.
Harris allegedly threw Geier’s property from the car and left while Geier hailed a cab and was taken to an emergency room in San Jose.
Geier had surgery to repair broken orbital bones and required a metal plate to repair the damage.
Kwame Harris is a former prep legend from the state of Delaware, and this behavior and the story itself is shocking to me. More on this story as information is released.
