Harris became angry after Dimitri Geier attempted to put soy sauce on his rice, according to prosecutors.  An upset Harris allegedly pinned him against a window and hit him several times in the face. Geier was forced to undergo surgery for facial fractures.  

The jury acquitted Harris of felony charges related to the incident. 

Harris’ attorney says his client punched Geier once and acted in self-defense.
