The controversial and notoriously hot-tempered Marshall seems to have initially tried to shield his wife from blame. He told cops who responded to the scene at the couple’s home, that he’d fallen on a broken vase and that’s what cut him. There was a shattered vase at the scene, but it was not bloodied.

Marshall is legendary for his fights with coaches and ex-girlfriends. He’s been arrested several times, including once for DUI.

He is in the Intensive Care Unit at Broward General Hospital, although his injuries were determined to not be life-threatening.
