Jamie Ralph Kuntz, 21, was ordered Wednesday to appear next month in Los Angeles Superior Court on charges that he repeatedly violated an order to stay away from Geffen.

Kuntz pleaded not guilty earlier this month and is being held on $150,000 bail.

Kuntz was kicked off the North Dakota State College of Sciences football team two years ago after kissing a 65-year-old boyfriend in the press box.

Kuntz says he lost his place as linebacker because he was gay, though the coach says he was removed for lying about the kiss.
