NFL troublemaker Brandon Marshall is in hot water again, this time for punching a woman in the face outside a New York nightclub. According to Fox Sports, Marshall was at Marquee in Chelsea early Sunday when he got into an argument with a group of friends celebrating a birthday. Marshall reportedly punched the birthday girl, Christin Myles, 24, in the face after, his lawyer claims, a bottle was thrown at his wife.
Myles suffered a black eye. She later filed a police report naming Marshall as the perpetrator. But Marshall's lawyer said the fight did not involve Marshall or his friends.
“While attempting to leave to avoid the melee [Marshall’s wife] was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury,” Harvey Steinberg said in a statement.
“While attempting to leave and take his wife to the hospital, the mayhem continued outside. Mr. Marshall is hoping to assist authorities in regards to this matter," said Steinberg.
Marshall's lawyer never denied that Marshall took a swing at Myles.
A few days after the fight, the Miami Dolphins unloaded Marshall in a trade to the Chicago Bears. The Bears front office claims not to know about the fight or the fact that Marshall is a loose cannon, who goes around punching women.
You may recall that Marshall was the subject of one of my Medical Minutes on Borderline Personality Disorder. That post came about after Marshall held a news conference to announce his diagnosis.
Marshall arranged the press conference to explain why he's been arrested six times in the past for violence and other mayhem. One of those arrests was for assaulting his wife who was forced to stab him to get him off of her. That particular arrest landed Marshall in therapy for his aggression and mood disorders.
After completing his therapy, Marshall told reporters that he wanted to be "the face" of Borderline Personality Disorder. But people with BDP and narcissism are notoriously difficult to treat because they think they know more than the therapist.
We can see that nothing has changed.
