A Former NFL Player Is In Court On Domestic Violence Charges
Redwood City, California (CNN) - A former N-F-L player was in court yesterday (Monday) on domestic violence charges -- over a fight with a man described as his ex-boyfriend.
Kwame Harris was seen leaving the courthouse with his lawyer.
The former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders player was arrested last year for attacking his former boyfriend at a restaurant.
The two were apparently arguing over spilled soy sauce.
Prosecutors say the men continued arguing outside the restaurant, where Harris pulled down the other man's pants and accused him of stealing his underwear, then assaulted him.
Harris' attorney says the other man -- Dimitri Geier -- threw the first punch in the fight, and that Geier is just looking for money.
Geier's attorney told K-G-O T-V news his client is the victim of a brutal attack, and that he just wants to have his medical bills covered.
