Former NFL Star Kwame Harris Arrested For Assaulting Ex-Boyfriend

Former NFL Star Kwame Harris Arrested For Assaulting Ex-BoyfriendAccording to the San Mateo Daily Journal, a dispute over soy sauce at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park, Calif. last Aug. 21, has landed the former NFL player Kwame Harris in court after he assaulted his ex-boyfriend.

‘Felony charges’

Chief deputy district attorney Karen Guidotti told the paper that Harris and the alleged victim had been in a romantic relationship but were not involved at the time of the incident. Harris’ attorney Alin Cintean confirmed to the paper the two “were previously involved” but were just friends when the incident occurred.

Harris pleaded not guilty to felony charges of domestic violence causing great bodily injury and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, the Daily Journal said. The dispute started when Harris got upset at his friend, Dimitri Geier, for pouring soy sauce on a plate of rice.


‘Broken orbital bones’

When the two went to get Geier’s belongings from Harris’ car, Harris accused Geier of stealing his underwear and tried pulling the man’s pants down. Geier tried unsuccessfully to get away, and Harris shook Geier and punched his arms, the paper said. The paper said Geier allegedly struck Harris three times in the face, and then Harris punched Geier several times in the face. Geier was taken to an emergency room, and had surgery to repair broken orbital bones and required a metal plate to fix the damage, the paper said.

The Daily Journal said Geier has filed a civil suit against Harris for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Harris could also face up to seven years in prison if convicted, Guidotti told the paper.

Study: Women Drive Romance

A study of mobile phone calls suggests that women call their spouse more than any other person.

The study has been published in the journal Scientific Reports. It also shows that men call their spouse most often for the first seven years of their relationship. They then shift their focus to other friends. According to the study’s co-author, Professor Robin Dunbar of Oxford University, UK, the investigation shows that pair-bonding is much more important to women than men.

“It’s the first really strong evidence that romantic relationships are driven by women,” he told BBC News. ”It’s they who make the decision and once they have made their mind up, they just go for the poor bloke until he keels over and gives in!”


Prof Dunbar also claims that the findings suggest that human societies are moving away from a patriarchy back to a matriarchy. This kind of anthropological study is normally very difficult to do because it is hard for researchers to get such a big picture of people’s lives. But by looking at an at an extremely large mobile phone database, they were able to track these changes extremely accurately.

The researchers say that a woman’s social world is intensely focussed on one individual and will shift as a result of reproductive interests from being the mate to children and grandchildren. According to Prof Dunbar, the data suggests that “at root the important relationships are those between women and not those between men”.

“Men’s relationships are too casual. They often function at a high level in a political sense, of course; but at the end of the day, the structure of society is driven by women, which is exactly what we see in primates,” he explains.
