The aggravated assault case that remains open against Brandon Marshall’s wife Michi Nogami-Marshall remains open for a few reasons.
1. Brandon Marshall refused to speak about the incident for almost two months after it happened. Eventually, he was subpoenaed.
2. Nogami-Marshall admitted immediately after the incident that she stabbed her husband. According to a police report, she said she did it in self-defense.
That testimony could prove tricky for the couple to overcome, especially because Marshall says now his wife didn’t stab him.
“I can’t talk about the details of the incident because it’s still an open case, but I did talk to the state attorney’s office last month and the one thing I made clear was my wife did not stab me. She didn’t assault me,” Marshall told Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “We were having a marital dispute that got heated, but it didn’t happen as reported.”
Those reports came directly from the police. Who got the testimony directly from Marshall’s wife. Marshall has a history of domestic disturbances dating back to his days in Denver.
Marshall has been working out in Boston, in part because he’s not allowed to be near his wife because of a restraining order against her. (Which she violated.)
“Like any young couple we have issues and hope to work through it. But it’s hard to pick up the pieces and try to move forward with the distance that the situation has created. I’m hopeful that we can move forward because I love my wife,” he said.
The courts could have a say about that distance. CompleteColorado.com reports that a female from Marshall’s residence called 911 in a separate incident back in January, screaming for help before she hung up.
When the dispatcher called back, a man answered the phone and said everything was fine. The female then confirmed she no longer needed help.
