Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall was briefly detained, then released without charges following a dispute on Nov. 14 about cab fare.

Brandon Marshall is struggling to stay out of the news for reasons unrelated to football. Due to a combination of unfortunate factors, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was briefly held in custody by police back on Nov. 14. After attending a birthday party for teammate Karlos Dansby, Marshall got into a taxi. He believed that he told the cab driver to take him home, but the cab driver took him to the airport. They had a disagreement about the fare that eventually led to police taking Marshall into custody.

Upon reaching the airport, Marshall refused to pay his fare and went to find another cab to take him home, The disgruntled cab driver, Peterson Pierre, told police that Marshall was fleeing to avoid paying a fare and told the driver of the other cab what took place. That driver, Yenbeve Saint-Remy, pulled into a security checkpoint outside of the airport and told deputies that Marshall was "wanted by police". 

At that point, Marshall was handcuffed. The parties sorted out the disagreement and Marshall agreed to pay Pierre $142, then was released. Marshall and his agent Kennard McGuire claim that the disagreement had to do with a language barrier between Marshall and Pierre and that Marshall was not attempting to defraud Pierre. Marshall reportedly apologized to both cab drivers and the matter was resolved without any charges.

This sounds like it truly was a misunderstanding, but Marshall is finding a way to keep getting himself into newsworthy situations that have nothing to do with football.
