Authorities say the wife of Brandon Marshall stabbed the Miami Dolphins wide receiver with a kitchen knife. His agent says the player is recovering.
Twenty-six-year-old Michi Nogami-Marshall was arrested Friday evening and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office arrest report, Nogami-Marshall told officers she was defending herself. Marshall had earlier told officers he slipped and fell onto a broken glass vase. But the officers noted that evidence at the couple's home didn't back up that claim.
Nogami-Marshall was released from jail on $7,500 bail.
The NFL lockout restricts team contact with players. However, Dolphins officials say they were told by the league their team doctor is allowed to see Marshall and consult with Marshall's other doctors.
