NFL Star Brandon Marshall

DENIES Punching Woman

In the FACE at Nightclub

3/14/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL superstar wide receiver Brandon Marshall
NFL superstar wide receiver Brandon Marshall -- who was JUST traded to the Chicago Bears -- has denied punching a woman in the face at a NY nightclub ... despite detailed reports to the contrary.

According to reports, Marshall was outside of a club in Chelsea, NY around 4AM Sunday morning ... when he got into an argument with a group of people ... and allegedly threw a punch that connected with 24-year-old Christin Myles. It's unclear if Marshall intended to strike the woman ... or if she was collateral damage as Brandon was trying to hit someone else .

Either way, Myles says she suffered a black eye ... and filed a police report the next day. According to the NY Post, Myles was nervous about filing because of Brandon's high profile status.

But Marshall's lawyer says the 6'4", 230-pounder did NOT strike Myles ... however, he claims Brandon's wife was injured in a DIFFERENT brawl that went down at the club.

Attorney Harvey Steinberg explains, “While attempting to leave to avoid the melee, [Marshall’s wife] was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury." He continued, "The mayhem continued outside.’’

Marshall was JUST traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Chicago Bears this week ... for a measly couple of 3rd round draft picks. Now it's all starting to make sense ...

Gone are the days where you could go clubbing, party hardy, and just have crazy fun. Those were truly the good old days and not this stupid crap.

Sorry, but I'm going to call bull_jhit on this story. If that man had landed a punch on some poor little thing's jaw her face would have ****tered like a plate on cement. Sorry baby, it ain't the payday yet. Find yourself anotehr athlete and lay down with him until you get your payday. It's bound to happen eventually.

Dude was stabbed by his wife a while back. You'd think he'd stay away from scuffles with the ladies.

I for one am shocked to hear this. I mean a man who beats his wife would just hit some random lady in a club (sarcasm). Its funny how all these stories about Brandon 'allegedly' punching a woman, there is no mention that he beats his wife.

Well of course the lawyer is going to say that Marshall didn't punch her, that's his job. If this was in a nightclub or just outside of the club, you would think there'd be camera's to capture this kind of stuff. Instead of agreeing with the woman, why not check the cameras if there are any? Why go by 1 persons word? You never know if the woman is trying to destroy the players profile. Of course, this is just one persons opinion on this short article.
