Kwame Harris, a former NFL offensive tackle, made a pretrial appearance in court Monday on charges that he assaulted a former boyfriend in a disagreement over soy sauce and underwear.

Harris, who played five seasons for the San Francisco 49ers (2003-07) and one for the Oakland Raiders (2008), is charged with felony counts of domestic violence causing great bodily injury and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury from an incident which occurred in August. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Harris, who pleaded not guilty in the fall, appeared Monday in San Mateo County Superior Court and is scheduled to face trial in April.

The alleged victim, Dimitri Geier, who was romantically involved with Harris prior to the altercation but not when it occurred, also has filed a civil suit.

According to court documents, Harris and Geier were at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park when "Plaintiff (Geier) put soy sauce on a plate of rice, which upset Defendant (Harris)."

The documents continue to state the following:

"Defendant argued with Plaintiff over the incident for approximately seven minutes and then proceeded to exit the restaurant. Plaintiff stayed inside the restaurant and continued eating. A few minutes later, Defendant returned and informed Plaintiff he would not drive him to the airport and informed Plaintiff that he was going to throw Plaintiff'sbelongings out of his (Defendants') car. Plaintiff agreed to take a cab to the airport and informed Defendant that he would remove his belongings from Defendant'scar.While exiting the restaurant, Defendant began to push Plaintiff and tried to pull Plaintiff's pants down, accusing Plaintiff of stealing his (Defendant's) underwear. Plaintiff tried to leave the restaurant and Defendant followed Plaintiff into the parking lot outside, where the Defendant continued to push Plaintiff and attempted to pull Plaintiff's pants down."

The document also states that Harris is accused of punching Geier in the head as well, breaking several bones in his face.

Harris faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.
