Miami Dolphins Brandon Marshall's troubled record

Nov. 1, 2004: Arrested in Orange County, Fla., on five misdemeanor charges of trespass, resisting an officer without violence, refusal to obey an officer, disorderly conduct and assault on an officer. Eventually, not prosecuted.

April 12, 2005: Arrested in Orange County on a misdemeanor charge of retail or farm theft. Never prosecuted. 2006: Selected out of UCF in the fourth round by Denver.

Jan. 1, 2007: Marshall is one of many friends and teammates with Broncos teammate Darrant Williams at a Denver nightclub. A dispute with some other patrons ends with Williams being fatally shot.

March 27, 2007: Arrested on suspicion of domestic violence following an argument with his girlfriend, Rasheeda Watley. Charges are dismissed when Marshall completes anger management classes.

Dec. 30, 2007: He finishes the season with 102 catches, seven touchdowns and a still-career high 1,325 yards.

Oct. 22, 2007: Arrested in Denver for driving under the influence of alcohol. Marshall later pleads guilty to driving while impaired and is sentenced to a year of probation.

March 6, 2008: Arrested on misdemeanor battery charges involving Watley again, this time in Atlanta. This time, the case goes to trial in August 2009 and Marshall is acquitted. After the arrest, the NFL suspended Marshall for three 2008 games under the personal conduct policy, but that was reduced to one game upon Marshall's appeal.

March 22, 2008: While play-wrestling with family members during an Orlando vacation, Marshall slips and puts his arm through an entertainment center glass, sustaining severe lacerations.

Sept. 14, 2008: Marshall opens his season with 18 catches for 166 yards and a touchdown in a 39-38 win against San Diego.

March 1, 2009: Marshall and Michi Nogami-Campbell are arrested and booked on disorderly conduct charges after, according to a police report, officers saw them engage in a physical fight outside Marshall's Atlanta condominium. The next day, charges were dropped. Summer 2009: Asked for a trade after Denver refuses to renegotiate his contract. Suspended by Denver for the last two preseason games for "conduct detrimental to the team" after goofing around during practice. The injured Marshall admitted using poor judgment, but said he was frustrated by several team actions, including, he said, misdiagnosing an injury that required off-season surgery.

Dec. 13, 2009: Marshall catches 21 passes, setting an NFL single-game record, although Denver loses to Indianapolis 28-16.

Dec. 27, 2009: Catches his 100th pass of the season, becoming only the fifth player in NFL history with three consecutive 100-catch seasons. Though benched for the season finale, he still finishes with 101 catches, 1,120 yards and a career-high 10 touchdown catches.

Jan. 3, 2010: Benched by coach Josh McDaniels for the final regular-season game for being late to a physical therapy session. The team already was skeptical about the severity of Marshall's hamstring injury.
