Former Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall, nicknamed "The Beast" for his aggressive strategy on the field, was allegedly involved in an incident outside a New York City nightclub that left a birthday girl with an unfortunate present — a black eye.

That birthday girl was Christin Myles, 24, who was reportedly held outside a nightclub while bouncers attempted to remove Marshall, 27, and another football player, who were fighting inside, the New York Post reports. When Marshall and the unknown athlete went outdoors, that's when Myles was allegedly "slugged" in the left eye by Marshall. It wasn’t clear if Marshall meant to hit the woman or if he was aiming for someone else, reports said.

Myles filed a police report Monday with the 10th Precinct against Marshall. Marshall’s lawyer denied that the NFL player was involved in the fight. “While at the function, a fight broke out not involving Marshall or his friends,” Harvey Steinberg, Marshall’s attorney, said in a statement Wednesday.

Apparently, Marshall has a history of run-ins with the law. He has been arrested for disorderly conduct, drunk driving, and domestic violence, according to the Miami Herald. Last year, Marshall's wife Michi Nogami-Marshall stabbed him with a kitchen knife during a domestic dispute, but charges were later dropped.
