FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (AP) - A brief 911 call police say was placed by the wife of Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall described only an unspecified emergency, with no mention of a stabbing.
The caller, identified by the Broward Sheriff’s Office as Michi Nogami-Marshall, phoned a dispatcher at 4:41 p.m. Friday. Twice she said “Please come, it’s an emergency.” The dispatcher tried to find a location, but Nogami-Marshall apparently hung up and didn’t answer a return call.
Deputies say Nogami-Marshall stabbed her husband in the abdomen with a kitchen knife. She is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and is free on $7,500 bail. Nogami-Marshall told investigators she acted in self-defense. Court records don’t indicate if she has an attorney.
Marshall was released from the hospital Saturday and is expected to fully recover.
