Soy sauce assault.

From The San Francisco Examiner, November 6, page 9: "Former 49er Kwame Harris was found guilty Monday of multiple misdemeanor charges but acquitted of all felony counts in connection with an assault on his ex-boyfriend last year at a Chinese restaurant in Menlo Park...The dispute reportedly began at Su Hong restaurant, where Harris disagreed with ex-lover Dimitri Geier's use of soy sauce during their meal. The argument escalated and...Harris punched Geier several times in the face, causing a skull fracture that required the installation of a metal plate, prosecutors said." Okaaaay. Maybe he just should have posted on CH?

      1. It could have been worse. He might have put Parmesan cheese on his seafood linguine.

        1. What a weird story. Some people are really tightly wound.

          1. This is exaggerated. The argument started with soy sauce, but that was not the entire reason. It is still funny.

            "Harris was angry that his boyfriend at the time, Dimitri Geier, tried to put soy sauce on Harris' rice at Suh Hong restaurant on Menlo Avenue.

            Harris then accused Geier of stealing his underwear and tried to pull down the boyfriend's pants to prove he was wearing the stolen pair, authorities said.

            Harris, 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds, pinned Geier against a plate-glass window and hit him several times in the face and head, hard enough to cause facial fractures that required surgery and the insertion of a metal plate, according to San Mateo County prosecutors. "

              LOL - You couldn't make this stuff up.

                Yes, soy sauce and stolen underwear, and then a fist fight.

                3 very different phrases in one story.

                  OK, I did edit. But the second reason is just as weird, though not Chowish.

                    You are just jealous that you have never fought someone over stolen underwear. :P

                "At 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds" it appears Harris is at least dropping some pounds after he quit playing football. Now he needs to control the soy sauce.

                  <Now he needs to control the soy sauce.>

                  And his underwear too.
