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.
