Bears WR Marshall accused of punching woman in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) – New York City police say a woman has accused NFL star receiver Brandon Marshall of punching her in the face at a nightclub.

The woman alleges the incident occurred at 3:50 a.m. Sunday outside the Marquee, a nightclub in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood.

Police are investigating a complaint she filed Monday evening.

He has not been charged.

Marshall was traded Tuesday from the Miami Dolphins to the Chicago Bears.

His attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment Wednesday.

Last year, Marshall's wife was arrested after he was stabbed in the abdomen during a domestic dispute. Charges were later dropped

Marshall was involved in a 2007 fight in Denver that led to the drive-by slaying of the Broncos' Darrent Williams.
