Early this morning, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was hospitalized after being stabbed in the stomach. His wife, Michi, was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon shortly thereafter, but she’ll probably end up serving hard time because that’s usually how it works. Marshall, however, has never paid any kind of price for beating the crap out of women over many, many years.
So, let’s just take a look at her NFL wide receiver, Brandon Marshall’s criminal record, shall we?

I’ll probably catch a lot of sh*t for this one, but, just maybe…
Most women can be pushed only so far–especially if you decide to get abusive with her in the KITCHEN. Everyone knows that. Sheeeesh.
