Former Niners lineman charged with assaulting “boyfriend”

Since the current members of the San Francisco 49ers are providing us with nothing interesting to discuss, a former member of the team has helped fill the void.

According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, former 49ers tackle Kwame Harris has been charged with assaulting “his former boyfriend at a Menlo Park restaurant during an argument over soy sauce and underwear.”

The alleged victim, Dimitri Geier, also has filed a civil lawsuit against Harris for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Geier claims that Harris became upset when Geier “poured soy sauce on a plate of rice,” and that Harris later “pull[ed] the other man’s pants down and accused him of stealing his underwear.”Attorney Alin Cintean says that Harris did nothing wrong.  (Imagine that.)  “This really is a pure self-defense case.  [Harris] was attacked,” Cintean said. Harris, who faces seven years in prison, was freed on $75,000 bail.  The 2003 first-round pick played five years with the 49ers and one with the Raiders.

    Maybe NBC should broadcast this court case next year instead of the Pro Bowl?

    more competitive and better ratings, I’d wager…

    I can see this topic is going to result in profound intellectual discourse.

    I had big hopes of him coming out of Stanford but he was a bit of a disappointment. Sorry to hear he is in trouble with the law following his career.

    Kwame was a terrible tackle for the 49ers, that is all.

  8. nineroutsider says: Jan 28, 2013 3:44 PM

    For anybody who doesn’t recognize his name, you are sure to recognize his alias “False Start, Number 77″.

    Yet another awful pick from the Terry Donahue/Dennis Erikson era…

    Dont remember him playing a down for the Raiders but ok

    $75K bail?

    jeez.

    Kwame “Turnstile” Harris

  12. iamthorny says: Jan 28, 2013 4:58 PM

    “Soy Sauce” and “Underwear”???? I re-read it to make sure it wasn’t “Boy Sauce” which I guess would be a potential “sticking point” when it comes to underwear and arguments.

  13. Kaz says: Jan 28, 2013 4:59 PM

    Maybe he’ll sue the league for head trama…

  14. daddyb1gdrawz says: Jan 28, 2013 5:03 PM

    Ummm!!! Am I missing something here? Has this article hinted that Kwame Harris is gay? Everyone is so caught up in taking shots at Kwame’s play that no one is picking up on the article says “boyfriend”.

  15. helloanybodyhome says: Jan 28, 2013 5:09 PM

    Bet his penalty will be harsher than what saint Ray got after the murders.

  16. dukemarc says: Jan 28, 2013 5:14 PM

    6 years playing football around the Bay Area, must have been his dream come true.

  17. hurrayforyogapants says: Jan 28, 2013 5:18 PM

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  18. Jeremy W says: Jan 28, 2013 5:30 PM

    What’s with the quotes around “boyfriend” in the title? Would you have put them there if it was his girlfriend?

    That is all.

    “While the Court can fully appreciate what an unspeakably perverse act it is, pouring soya sauce over rice, Mr. Harris, you must refrain from thrashing a person much smaller than yourself. Unless, of course, it was overcooked, polished white rice he was dousing.”.

  21. romoscollarbone says: Jan 28, 2013 5:37 PM

    Believe it or not daddbigdraws, we’re past that. If the guy likes soy sauce. I don’t care.

    Anddddd that’s how bad he was at OT.

  22. war27 says: Jan 28, 2013 5:47 PM

    Now I know why he was a terrible tackle. He wanted the man in front of him to be behind him.

  23. southpaw79 says: Jan 28, 2013 6:03 PM

    His job was to block other men, he choose to hold them instead. It makes sense now. He was not a bad tackle, he was just speed dating.

  24. stampofdisapproval says: Jan 28, 2013 6:14 PM

    Harris went from jumping off sides to jumping to the other side.

  25. purpleguy says: Jan 28, 2013 6:19 PM

    Of all the things in that article, the one I can’t get out of my head is that a guy stole another guy’s underwear.

    You don’t remember “Jumpy” Harris from 2008? He was so quick off the ball that the refs were constantly accusing him of false starts.

  27. hendeeze says: Jan 28, 2013 7:00 PM

    Still a better love story than Twilight

  28. noring4youstill says: Jan 28, 2013 7:12 PM

    He should get together with the no name special teamer from the Ravens

  29. catquick says: Jan 28, 2013 7:31 PM

    As I understand it, Dmitri would have to pay him for a beating in one ” alternative” circles.

    Most of my best stuff never makes it.

    I even quit cursing after Florio went straight.

    Free The Wizard.

  32. dirtyjersey9er says: Jan 28, 2013 9:48 PM

    If only he were that prone to violence when it came time to block defenders.

  33. alphabeta49er says: Jan 29, 2013 12:08 AM

    He played for the Raiders?

    I didn’t know he played for the other team.

  34. joetoronto says: Jan 29, 2013 5:05 AM

    Harris later “pull[ed] the other man’s pants down and accused him of stealing his underwear, before putting his hands over his head and dancing.”

    Only in San Francisco. :)

  35. 1bigtex says: Jan 29, 2013 7:08 AM

    So how long will it be before we hear about his sexual orientation being a result of a plot by the NFL, or the refs, or the media, or Bill Callahan, or Peter King?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  36. cmack21 says: Mar 29, 2013 3:07 PM

    “his former boyfriend at a Menlo Park restaurant during an argument over soy sauce and underwear.”

    just disgusting on sooooo many levels.
