New Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is dealing with the fallout of an incident at a New York night club Monday morning.

What exactly happened isn't clear.

Marshall's lawyer, Harvey Steinberg of Denver, issued a statement through Fox Sports.

"On March 12,2012 Brandon Marshall was the key note speaker at a charitable event in New York. After the event was over he, his wife and close friends attended a function at a local club. While at the function a fight broke out NOT involving Mr. Marshall or his friends. While attempting to leave to avoid the melee Mrs. Marshall was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury. While attempting to leave and take his wife to the hospital, the mayhem continued outside. Finally Mr. Marshall was able to take his wife to the hospital where she was treated for serious injuries. Mr. Marshall is hoping to assist authorities in regards to this matter."

The New York Post, though, has a different story.

In fact, the Post reported in this story that Marshall "cold-cocked" a woman in the left eye around 4 a.m. The newspaper also said that Marshall was being escorted out of the club, after getting into a "fight" with an unknown athlete.

The league surely will monitor this situation.

The Post cited sources as saying the Bears were not aware of the incident before trading two third-round picks to the Miami Dolphins Tuesday afternoon. But, it's believed the Bears and Dolphins were aware of the incident before executing the trade.

Bears and NFL spokesperson weren't available for comment early Wednesday morning.

Already, are you kidding me? Most likely there will be video footage of all this. So we will know what really happened, but dude stay away from trouble. I notice how the NY player does not get named, oh nobody new who he was, a great mystery. Friggin Eli causing trouble again. Oh and if Miami covered this up? I mean it explains the low asking price. If it's true it's suspension.

It's like the WR position is cursed in Chicago. It's the damn cubs fans fault tainting the rest of Chicago with your evil goat curses. Now you look what you did. If there is video footage it was prbably recorded by a fat dude in a cubs jersey.

Well, that didn't take long. Sadly, the only surprising thing here is that some charity wanted Brandon Marshall to be their keynote speaker. They must have been really desperate.

Marshall has the potential to make Tank Johnson look like a choir boy. Chicago hasn't seen a disruptive personality like Marshall's in a long time. It'll be interesting how it plays out. Hopefully the veterans in the locker room can keep him in line.

That's why the two 3rd round picks!!!!!

Creighton et al - are you concerned at all that ProFootballFocus rates Brandon Marshall as the 19th best WR out of 32 from 2011 (w/more than 75% of the team's snaps)?

You're an idiot... Cubs fans and "their" curse are affecting all of Chicago sports? U must be wearing a sox jersey, still crying about the massive choke at the end of the season
