CASTLE ROCK (AP) - Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall no longer faces a false-imprisonment charge stemming from a domestic dispute, his attorney said.

Attorney Harvey Steinberg said the charge was dismissed Friday in a Douglas County court. The district attorney's spokeswoman did not immediately return a call.

Marshall was arrested in March after a woman who identified herself as his girlfriend said Marshall had used his vehicle to block her taxi as she tried to leave his home in the Highlands Ranch development south of Denver.

She said they had been arguing.

"I think when a complete investigation was done and all the facts were brought to light, it was clear why Brandon did what he did," Steinberg said. "They (prosecutors) agreed to take a second look and came to this conclusion."

A police report said the woman told investigators that after blocking the taxi, Marshall jumped out of his car and ran to the taxi's passenger window, punching it and calling the woman names.

Marshall denied hitting the window and told officers he was trying to get his cell phone back, the report said. He said he'd loaned it to her because her cell phone was being repaired.

The driver of the taxi reversed the car and managed to get around Marshall's vehicle, the report said.
