His wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. She is currently being held in a Miami area prison.

Marshall reportedly told doctors that the wound was from being hit by a vase, but the doctors determined that he was actually stabbed and police arrested his wife. It's not the first time Marshall and his wife have had a domestic violence incident. They were arrested in Atlanta after reportedly having a fistfight on a sidewalk. The charges were dropped then.

The Miami Dolphins released the following statement.

"We are aware of the report, and our thoughts are with Brandon at this time. We will look into the matter. But because we are not allowed to have any contact with any of our players (because of the NFL lockout), we will refrain from making any further comment."
