Brandon Marshall's wife arrested again

Brandon Marshall during happier times Posted by Ryan Wilson

In late April, Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall got into an argument with his wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, it escalated, and she stabbed him. She was subsequently arrested, and he ended up in the hospital. A month later, Marshall was still refusing to speak to the Broward State Attorney's office about the incident, although he stated that as soon as investigators dropped the "no contact" order against his wife he would cooperate.

Well, Nogami-Marshall was arrested again Friday in the home she once shared with her husband. According to the police report, authorities showed up at the house Friday morning in response to a 911 hang-up. Apparently, Nogami-Marshall had been living there while Marshall was away, he returned, they argued (sound familiar?), and that led to the 911 call. The report also stated that Nogami-Marshall's actions "clearly violate[d] the pre-trial conditions pursuant to the order to stay 500 feet away from the residence and to 'not' have contact," hence the arrest.

There's no word if Nogami-Marshall will receive bond, the Palm Beach Post reports. Either way, she's scheduled to appear in court Saturday morning.

For Brandon, it's just the latest in an offseason full of distractions. The Dolphins said days after the stabbing that they weren't looking to release the enigmatic but talented wide receiver. Whatever the organization decides, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently stated that he is monitoring the situation, and once the lockout is resolved, it will be determined if Marshall violated the league's personal conduct policy.

If history is any guide, that's a fancy way of saying Marshall will likely face disciplinary action.

Meanwhile, maybe Ray Lewis was onto something. Here's to hoping he doesn't start making doomsday prophecies.

A closer look at Marshall and his wife

Posted by Andy Benoit

If he could, Brandon Marshall would probably set his Facebook relationship status to “married” AND “it’s complicated”. The Dolphins wide receiver was hospitalized late Friday night/early Saturday morning after being stabbed by his wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall. Michi was in jail Saturday on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.Michi Marshall (Essence.com)

This was not the couple’s first domestic dispute. On March 1, 2009, Marshall was arrested in Atlanta for disorderly conduct after allegedly being involved in a fight with Michi, who was his fiancée at the time. (Marshall had multiple domestic disputes while in Denver, but they were with a different woman.)

Marshall and Michi met when Marshall was at Central Florida. They married in 2010. Marshall said in an interview with the Miami Herald last year that Michi, a psychology major, was helping him learn to deal with his quick temper.

"She is turning my life around. I am a very passionate, emotional person, and she is teaching me to channel that,” Marshall said. “My life is so much calmer now.”

Marshall admits that calm, collective thinking is something that doesn’t always come naturally to him.

"From the time I was 6, I was taught to react on the field, not to think, to make decisions in a millisecond, and the problem is, I was doing that in my life, too,” Marshall said. “I was reacting, never taking a moment to step back and think things through. And I had a temper. Someone made me mad, I'd fight back. I wanted to win every argument. Now, I realize it's OK to step away and lose an argument."

It will be interesting to hear what Marshall has to say next time he’s asked about Michi.

Brandon Marshall out of hospital after stabbing

Posted by Andy Benoit

UPDATE 3:30 p.m. EST: Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Marshall is out of the hospital but has defensive wounds on his hands. Those wounds are not believed to be serious, but they could certainly impact Michi Marshall's claim that she stabbed her husband in self defense.


Brandon Marshall is expected to be discharged from a South Florida hospital Saturday after spending several hours in intensive care following a stabbing from his wife during a domestic dispute. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Marshall underwent surgery late Friday night for a stomach wound and is expected to make a full recovery in 2-3 weeks.

Meanwhile, Michi Nagomi-Marshall, who married the Dolphins receiver in 2010, remains in Broward County Jail on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Her bail is set at $7,500.

There is thick cloudiness regarding exactly what happened Friday night. Andrew Carter of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Michi has admitted to stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife, but she says she was acting in self defense.

There are reports that Marshall is claiming he slipped and fell on a vase. (Doctors have determined that Marshall was stabbed.) ESPN reports that Marshall was driven to the hospital in a car after whoever called 911 declined a dispatcher's offer to provide of an ambulance. 
Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire, issued a statement to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora: "This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family, thankfully he will make a full recovery. We simply ask that his privacy is respected."

As the Denver police came to find out during Marshall’s career as a Bronco, domestic disturbance is not uncommon in the Marshall household. There were countless issues from '06 - '09; in '08 Marshall served a one-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Marshall was involved with a domestic issue with Michi in Atlanta two years ago, but all charges were dropped when the couple refused to testify against one another. It's worth noting that the 27-year-old wideout has not been in trouble since signing a four-year, $47.5 million contract with Miami last season.

Despite the lockout's rules prohibiting contact between players and teams, the Dolphins are allowed to be in touch with Marshall to send well wishes (we learned there can be exceptions to the “no contact” rule a few weeks ago when Bengals’ defensive end Antwan Odom’s house burnt down).

Albert Breer of NFL Network was told by the league that Dolphins team doctors are also allowed to see Marshall and consult with his doctors.
