Brandon Marshall stabbed by wife
Michi Nogami-Marshall is claiming she acted in self-defense when she stabbed her husband, NFL star, Brandon Marshall. Yep, you read that right!
She was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. She later was released from jail on $7,500 bond.
Marshall, 27, was "not in imminent danger," before he was released from the intensive care unit.
"We appreciate everyone's thoughts and concerns regarding Brandon Marshall," publicist Denise White said in a statement. "He has been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery."
Marshall initially told police he was hit with a vase, but a hospital doctor later diagnosed the player as having been stabbed. ESPN reported that Marshall had undergone stomach surgery and is expected to recover in two to three weeks.
"This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family," Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire wrote in a text to FOXSports.com. "Thankfully, he will make a full recovery. We simply ask that his privacy is respected."
Jacksonville wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker, a close friend and college teammate of Marshall at the University of Central Florida, tweeted Saturday morning that Marshall "will be ok and is in good spirits."
The Dolphins on Saturday morning released a statement about the situation:
"We are aware of the report, and our thoughts are with Brandon at this time. We will look into the matter. But because we are not allowed to have any contact with any of our players (because of the NFL lockout), we will refrain from making any further comment."
Now my friends, if you remember, these two were both arrested on charges of disorderly conduct in March 2009 after the two began "kicking and punching each other on the sidewalk" after an argument, according to an Atlanta police report. The charges were dropped shortly thereafter.
