So we may not currently have an out gay NFL player, but if the charges filed in this domestic violence lawsuit are to be believed, it looks like we had a gay player in the league quite recently.
According to Outsports, "Kwame Harris, a former offensive lineman with the San Francisco 49ers, is facing felony charges of domestic violence for allegedly assaulting an ex-boyfriend last August in an argument started by soy sauce."
Soy sauce, huh? Kinky.
More after the jump.
The San Jose Mercury News writes:
"The trouble started August 21 when Harris and ex-boyfriend Dimitri Geier were sharing dinner at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park. Harris was to drive Geier to San Francisco International Airport for a flight following the meal. But the men began to argue after Geier poured soy sauce on some rice, which upset Harris, according to a civil lawsuit Geier filed in San Mateo County.
The arguing continued and escalated, until finally Harris revoked his offer to drop Geier off at the airport. Geier agreed to take a cab instead, but as they went to retrieve has bags from Harris’ car the dispute turned violent. Harris allegedly tried to pull down Geier’s pants and accused the ex of stealing his underwear, according to the suit. At some point the struggle came to blows.
The punches from Harris broke bones around Geier’s eye socket and led a metal plate being installed in his face to repair the physical damage from the beating, his suit says. [Harris' attorney Alan] Cintean said Geier struck first, but because his injuries were worse, prosecutors elected to charge Harris in connection with the violence."
Yikes. When a current gay NFL player reveals himself could he possibly do that without a scandal??
