SAN FRANCISCO — Kwame Harris, a former lineman for NFL teams the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders, was charged with attacking his ex-boyfriend this week. Harris was not known to be gay prior to the arrest.
According to the Mercury News, an argument over soy sauce in the parking lot of a Menlo Park restaurant turned violent and Harris is now facing felony domestic violence charges for assaulting Dimitri Grier of Los Angeles, breaking bones around Grier’s eye sockets. Grier and Harris had been in a four-year on-again-off-again relationship.
Harris’ attorney claims Grier threw the first punch, and claims Harris was acting in self-defense. Harris plans to plead not guilty to the charges.
