Just four days before being traded to his third NFL team, new Bears receiver Brandon Marshall was involved in an incident at a New York City nightclub.
Marshall, dealt by Miami to Chicago on Tuesday afternoon, was at a New York club early Sunday morning when, law-enforcement sources told The New York Post, the Pro Bowl wideout got into an argument with a group of friends celebrating a birthday at the club.
According to The Post, Christin Myles, the woman celebrating a birthday, briefly left an upper floor at roughly 4 a.m. ET. Upon returning, the paper reported, Myles was told to wait because Marshall was involved in a fight with an unnamed football player and both players were being thrown out of the club.
Myles eventually met with her friends outside, The Post said, and found the 6-foot-4 Marshall and the unnamed player arguing with her group. Marshall then punched Myles in the left eye, leaving her with a black eye, according to The Post. The paper also said it wasn't clear if Marshall intentionally struck Myles or if he meant to hit one of her friends.
The Post said Myles filed a report about the incident and police told the paper that the only report regarding the fight cites Marshall as a perpetrator.
I don't see that it would be a middle finger to the BCS so much as total justification for the Big East losing it's automatic bid. At this point in the season though all I care about is FSU beating Florida and then likely Notre Dame.
