Former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall is no stranger to negative media attention.
Brandon Marshall (who was JUST traded to the Chicago Bears) is denying he hit a woman in her eye during an argument outside of a New York club. In fact, his wife was the one who was injured inside the club when she was hit in the face with a bottle.
According to reports, Marshall was outside of a club in Chelsea, NY around 4AM Sunday morning … when he got into an argument with a group of people … and allegedly threw a punch that connected with 24-year-old Christin Myles. It’s unclear if Marshall intended to strike the woman … or if she was collateral damage as Brandon was trying to hit someone else.
Either way, Myles says she suffered a black eye … and filed a police report the next day. According to the NY Post, Myles was nervous about filing because of Brandon’s high profile status.
But Marshall’s lawyer says the 6’4″, 230-pounder did NOT strike Myles … however, he claims Brandon’s wife was injured in a DIFFERENT brawl that went down at the club.
Attorney Harvey Steinberg explains, “While attempting to leave to avoid the melee, [Marshall’s wife] was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury.” He continued, “The mayhem continued outside.’’
Back in April of 2011, his wife stabbed him and he was admitted to intensive care. His wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after stabbing Brandon in the stomach with a kitchen knife.
