from the Miami Herald:
Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall spent Friday night and early Saturday morning in the intensive care unit of a South Florida hospital after being stabbed by his wife, Michi, sources have confirmed to the Miami Herald.Also from the Herald:
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.
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.
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.
