Kwame Harris, former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders offensive, will appear in court this week for allegedly assaulting his ex-boyfriend outside a Chinese food restaurant in August 2012. The fight, it seems, erupted over spilled soy sauce.

The San Mateo Daily Journal has the details:

Harris was to drive [his ex 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 has also filed suit against the retired player for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence and "both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress." He is free on $75,000 bail.

The 30-year-old former footballer played at Stanford before moving the NFL to play for the Raiders and 49ers. He's one of the few football stars to have (openly?) been in a gay relationship.
