The wife of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall stabbed the NFL star with a kitchen knife, according to police.
Michi Nogami-Marshall, who married Marshall last July, was arrested Friday night for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
When Brandon Marshall joined the Miami Dolphins in 2010, he had a string of scrapes with the law in three states, repeated domestic disputes, contract squabbles, and petulant behavior during three years with the Denver Broncos.
Although he has not done any jail time, and charges were either never filed or dropped in the domestic abuse incidents, he arrived in Miami with a tarnished image.
“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 during an interview in 2010. “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.”
After getting married to Michi Nogami in 2010, Marshall said she, a psychology major, was helping him cope 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. My life is so much calmer now,” he said in 2010.
But on Saturday morning, Nogami had been arrested for stabbing him.
She is not the first woman in his life to stab him. His then girlfriend and high-school sweet heart Rasheedah Watley said in an ESPN interview that she had used a knife to defend herself in 2007. Read More
