CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) -A false imprisonment charge against Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall stemming from a domestic dispute was dismissed.
Attorney Harvey Steinberg said the charge was dismissed Friday in a Douglas County court. A spokesman for the district attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Marshall was arrested in March after a woman who identified herself as his girlfriend said Marshall used his vehicle to block her taxi as she tried to leave his home south of Denver.
She said they had been arguing.
``I think when a complete investigation was done and all the facts were brought to light, it was clear why Brandon did what he did,'' Steinberg said. ``They (prosecutors) agreed to take a second look and came to this conclusion.''
A police report said the woman told investigators that after blocking the taxi, Marshall jumped out of his car and ran to the taxi's passenger window, punching it and calling the woman names.
Marshall denied hitting the window and told officers he was trying to get his cell phone back, the report said. The driver of the taxi reversed the car and managed to get around Marshall's vehicle.
