When the Chicago Bears dealt two picks to the Miami Dolphins for troubled receiver Brandon Marshall, they undoubtedly knew what they were getting themselves into, they probably weren't expecting it to be quite so soon however.
According to reports in the New York Post Marshall hit a woman during a fight outside a Manhattan nightclub early Sunday morning, two days prior to him being traded to the Bears.
The Bears have said they did not know about the incident before they made the deal, possibly because the woman, Christin Myles, waited a day before making the report to police because of Marshall's high profile.
The police report of the incident says that Marshall got into an argument inside the club with another, unnamed athlete, and was escorted out. Myles and her group of friends got into an argument with Marshall and the unnamed player outside the club sometime later.
At that point, according to the report Marshall hit Myles in the left eye, leaving her with a black eye. The report indicates that he may have been attempting to hit someone else, but missed and caught Myles.
It is unclear at this time if the incident will lead to charges against Marshall, or if the NFL will discipline the reciever.
The wide receiver from UCF has a rap sheet that reads more like a career criminal than a three-time Pro Bowler.
Marshall has been arrested at least five times, several times involving domestic disturbances with his wife Michi Nogami-Campbell. In 2011, she was arrested after stabbing him in the stomach. He was present when teammate Darrent Williams was fatally shot outside a nightclub after an argument with patrons inside.
In July of last year he announced that he had been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, and that his disorder could play some part in his erratic behavior.
His behavior was so disruptive in Denver, where his pro career began, that he was dealt to Miami before the 2010 season.
