Brandon Marshall’s lawyer just released a statement saying Marshall had nothing to do with his wife getting her head busted by a bottle during a club brawl.
But here is a different versions of events.
Marshall was at Marquee early Sunday when he got into an argument with a group of friends celebrating a birthday, law-enforcement sources said.
Around 4 a.m., birthday girl Christin Myles, 24. left an upper floor to greet a friend downstairs.
When Myles tried to get back upstairs, a bouncer told her she had to wait because there was a fight between two football players — Marshall, 27, and an unknown athlete — who were being thrown out of the club, the sources said.
She later met up with her friends, who were arguing with the NFL bad boy and the other football player outside.
Marshall — who earned his nickname with his aggressive style of play — then allegedly cold-cocked Myles in the left eye. She suffered a black eye. It wasn’t clear if he allegedly intended to strike her or one of her pals.
The Bears were not aware of the incident at the time they completed the trade with the Miami Dolphins. You have to wonder if they are having a little bit of buyer’s remorse now? Even though Marshall’s lawyer says that had nothing to do with the brawl, the police say the only complaint is against him. In the mayhem Marshall’s wife was hit in the head with a bottle and had to be taken to hospital.
So what version do you believe?
Marshall as innocent bystander?
Marshall as instigator who punched a female in the face either on purpose or by accident?
Marshall better pray it isn’t the latter or he won’t be catching from Jay Cutler anytime soon.
According to several sources, the Bears and Dolphins were aware of the situation and decided to proceed with the trade.
From Bears GM Phil Emery
“We decided to move forward with the trade. We have high expectations for Brandon as a Bear.”
