NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall was released from a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hospital on Saturday after his wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, allegedly stabbed him in the stomach with a kitchen knife Friday evening.
Nogami-Marshall was bailed out of jail on Saturday on a $7,500 bond after being arrested Friday. When cops arrived to the couple’s home, Marshall claimed that a shard of glass from a shattered vase cut his stomach, but the officers weren't buying it. "The area where the vase was broken indicated no blood within the immediate area to substantiate his claim," said a police report.
Marshall's wife soon admitted that she stabbed her husband, but insisted that it was in self-defense.
Marshall is said to have a history of violent relationships, including his current marriage. In March 2009, the couple — who were engaged at the time — were arrested for disorderly conduct when cops saw them fighting outside of Marshall's home in Atlanta. The charges, however, were eventually dropped.
This couple is fortunate that no one was killed during the brawl. Unless Marshall seeks help for his issues with aggression, the violence between the two will not likely cease. Based on Marshall's history and the couple's rocky past, it would be best if they both sought counseling. And it wouldn't hurt if Marshall took a few lessons on how to keep his hands off women.
