ESPN is reporting that it sounds like the investigation into a March incident involving Bears WR Brandon Marshall is about to come to a close.
Marshall is alleged to have punched a woman in the face outside of a nightclub, and it sounds like police have been unable to find evidence against Marshall and the case will likely be closed without charges being filed.
Word is the WR was at the club that night, but denies involvement in any scuffle and claims that his wife, who was hit with a bottle and taken to a hospital, was the victim.
“The situation in New York, it’s unfortunate,” Marshall told “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000 in Chicago last week. “You never want to see anyone get hurt, but just the allegation of me balling my fist up and hitting a woman is just a lie. When the judicial system takes its course I’m very confident I will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
“My wife was the victim in this situation.”
It could have been the last straw for the Dolphins, as two days after the “incident”, the team moved Marshall to Chicago. Reports of the incident did not surface until the day after the deal, both teams reportedly knew of the incident at the time of the trade.
