Ex-49er convicted in former boyfriend's beating

SAN FRANCISCO — Former San Francisco 49er Kwame Harris has been found guilty of several misdemeanors involving a violent dispute with an ex-boyfriend at a Chinese restaurant last year.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/HFurXI) the 31-year-old former lineman was convicted Monday of misdemeanor domestic violence, battery and assault for the August 2012 attack. Harris was acquitted of felony domestic violence and assault. He's scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 12.

Prosecutors say Harris became angry after his boyfriend at the time, Dimitri Geier, tried to put soy sauce on his rice at a restaurant. They said Harris pinned the boyfriend against a window and hit him several times in the face and head.

Harris' attorney, Alin Cintean, says his client punched Geier only once and did it in self-defense.

Geier suffered several facial fractures that required surgery.
