(CBS) – Former 49ers and Raiders offensive lineman Kwame Harris will appear in court facing myriad charges after he allegedly beat up his ex-boyfriend.
The details of the case are a bit strange. The two men reportedly started fighting after a dispute over soy sauce and stolen underwear.
The San Manteo Daily Journal reports the fight took place at a Chinese restaurant.
Harris was to drive [his ex-boyfriend Dimitri 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.
Geier unsuccessfully tried pushing Harris away but the bigger man shook him violently and punched him in the arms, the suit states.
Geier reportedly ended up in the emergency room with broken bones around his eye socket, which required a metal plate being installed in his face to repair the physical damage.
