Nogami-Marshall posted $7,500 bond and was released from jail on Saturday afternoon, according to Broward County Sheriff Office's web site.
And the news keeps on rolling in.
First, we got word that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall had been stabbed late on Friday night. Then, reports surfaced that he claimed to have fallen on a broken vase. After that, Brandon Marshall's wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, was being arrested for stabbing Brandon with a kitchen knife in "self defense". Now, she has been released from jail, according to Andrew Carter from the Sun-Sentinel.
Brandon Marshall is going to recover from this injury since the knife did not damage any internal organs, but this story is not just going to disappear because his wife has been released from jail. Brandon Marshall has a history of being in the headlines. As Broncos fans, we all know some of the shenanigans that Brandon has gotten himself into, from the infamous entertainment center wound that damaged nerves in his arm to the unfortunate events that led to the Darrent Williams murder. After he moved to Miami and got married, many around the NFL thought that Brandon had finally settled down and gotten his life together.
Clearly, that is not the case. We are not entirely sure, at this point, what exactly Brandon was doing that Michi needed to defend herself from. What we do know, however, is that Brandon Marshall needs a change in his life. If he continues down this path, the next headline he is in could be a whole lot more serious.
Pro Football Talk makes an interesting observation that should be noted in this situation. The Dolphins still hold the option to release Brandon Marshall, which means they would be on the hook for only around $3 million of Brandon Marshall's contract.
Regardless of what the Dolphins decide to do with Brandon Marshall in the wake of this stabbing, the Denver Broncos will not have to give back the 2011 2nd round pick that they acquired during the trade.
