Dimitri Geier is SF 49ers Kwame Harris boyfriend in domestic violence attack. 30-year-old Harris could spend up to nine years of jail after being charged with domestic violence causing great bodily injury and assault, after an August 21, 2012 incident involving his former boyfriend, at Menlo Park, CA.
Reportedly, Harris was out with his boyfriend Dimitri Geier at a Chinese restaurant in the Bay Area, and said he would drive Geier to San Francisco International Airport for a flight after the meal. The two began arguing after Geier poured soy sauce over a plate of rice.
The pair left the restaurant, after which point Geier’s suit claims that the former NFL player pulled down his partner’s pants, accusing him of stealing his underwear, and began shaking and punching him. Geier was taken to ER, and Harris was arrested at his home following the fight.
Harris pleaded not guilty to the charges in San Mateo County Superior Court on January 28, 2013, and posted $75,000 bail after his arrest. The judge set a late-April trial date for Harris.
“The punches from Harris broke bones around Geier’s eye socket and led a metal plate being installed in his face and other surgeries”, said his attorney Craig Charles.
The Daily Journal said Geier, who had been in a four-year, on and off relationship with Harris, is also suing him civilly for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
“Whenever we move forward with charges, it’s because we believe the evidence is sufficient,” Serrato said. “Certainly the injuries are consistent with a serious assault.”
Check what we found, Dimitri severely injured in his hospital bed and check what he said about the domestic assault.

He was an offensive tackle for the 49ers, now heading to the Super Bowl, from 2003 to 2007, and joined the Oakland Raiders for a year in 2008.
