Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall, 27, is again in trouble off the field. Marshall was reportedly stabbed in his abdomen by his wife, Michi Nagomi-Marshall, on Friday. Brandon Marshall was rushed to hospital and underwent minor operation after the wide receiver was attacked by his wife who he married back in 2010.
Sources stated that the wounds of Marshall are minor and not life risking. The publicist for Marshall has confirmed that the player has left hospital for home. Moreover, he stated that Marshal received minor injury and will soon recover completely.
Albert Breer of NFL Network reported that Marshall also endured wounds to his hands in addition to injured stomach. Breer said that Marshall had defensive sores on his hands. Reports suggest that defensive injuries identified on both hands of Marshall are expected to create tough time for his wife.
Police took Michi Nagomi-Marshall, 26, into custody Friday evening. She was charged with aggravated battery with a lethal weapon. However, she was set free after she signed a bond of $7,500. According to the office of the sheriff, the case of Marshall being attacked by his wife is under probe.
Nagomi-Marshall told the police that she stabbed her husband in the stomach with a kitchen knife. Moreover, she asserted that whatever she did was in self defense. Brandon Marshall produced a testimony that he injured himself after slipping and falling on a wrecked glass jug.
“We are aware of the report, and our thoughts are with Brandon at this time”, Dolphins spokesperson Harvey Greene said in a statement. “We will look into the matter, but because we are not allowed to have any contact with any of our players, we will refrain from making any further comment.”
The NFL has stated that the team doctor of the Dolphins will examine Marshall and discuss with his other doctors.
It is noteworthy that in 2009 Brandon Marshall was arrested for brawling with his fiancé, Nagomi, who is now his wife. Marshall was also caught up in a brawl on New Year’s Eve that directed to the drive-by slaying of Darrent Williams, teammate of Broncos in 2007.
Denver traded Marshall to the Dolphins in 2010. This was done regardless of the fact that Marshall caught around one hundred passes successively for three years. Moreover, he made the Pro Bowl two times.
