kwame harris*Another athlete is being charged with some form of violence. 49ers right tackle Kwame Harris is being charged with felony domestic violence and assault charges for beating up a former boyfriend.

He’s got a trial date set for April for an incident that occurred outside a Menlo Park restaurant with Dimitri Geier, his on-again, off-again boyfriend at the time.

Harris has pleaded not guilty and posted $75,000 bail after his arrest, defense lawyer Alin Cintean said. Harris acknowledges he struck Geier, but it was in self-defense, Cintean said.

Kwame Harris is one of a handful of (former) pro athletes that have come out about their homosexuality. But none in the NFL before him have come out while still in uniform.

Ironically, he is said to be a very private person.
