Broncos wide receiver and renowned trouble magnet Brandon Marshall had a charge of disorderly conduct dropped against him yesterday after an altercation with his girlfriend. For a second, I thought it might have been an altercation with some sort of porpoise, but this happened in Atlanta, and the porpoise is generally considered a maritime creature. From Y! News:
Municipal Judge Clinton Deveaux dismissed the case after Marshall and his fiance, Michi Leshase Nogami-Campbell, both of whom were charged with disorderly conduct, refused to testify against each other.
Marshall, who was jailed for five hours Sunday morning after his fourth arrest in three years, is looking at possibly beginning the season at home just like he did last year. Marshall was banned from the opener following seven police-related incidents with his former girlfriend.
I have a hard time feeling sorry for anyone that dates this guy. But then there’s this:
While police looked on, the argument escalated and Marshall and his fiance began kicking and punching each other on the sidewalk outside his home, according to the report.
Oh, sure, let’s all judge a guy who trades punches and kicks with his girlfriend on the sidewalk. Let he who has not assailed his significant other with blows to the face cast the first stone. And then we’ll cast according to height. Sorry, short people.
