Miami Dolphins star receiver was taken to a Miami area hospital Friday Night after suffering a stab wound allegedly inflicted by his wife. Marshall had successful surgery yesterday and is expected to make a full recovery, however doctors kept him in the ICU to make sure there was no infection in the wound.
Brandon Marshall’s wife Michi Nogami-Marshall, 26, was arrested by the Broward County Sheriff’s department today and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Bond was set at $7,500. ESPN.com received a statement from Marshall’s agents, Kennard McGuire and Harvey Steinberg, this is what they had to say:
“This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family, thankfully he will make a full recovery,” Marshall’s agents, Kennard McGuire and Harvey Steinberg, said in a statement. “We simply ask that his privacy is respected.”
This is the latest incident in a troubled career for Brandon Marshall who was just traded to the Dolphins prior to the 2010 season.
