The wife of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall stabbed the NFL star with a kitchen knife, according to police.

Michi Nogami-Marshall, who married Marshall last July, was arrested Friday night for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, reports

"This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family, thankfully he will make a full recovery," Marshall's agent said in a statement.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office arrest report noted that evidence at the crime scene did not support Marshall's earlier claim that his injuries had been caused by falling on a broken glass vase. Nogami-Marshall, 26, told police she was defending herself from Marshall, 27, according to the report.

She is currently being held in jail under a $7,500 bond.

This isn't the first time the couple have been in trouble with police. In March 2009, a fight between the couple, who were engaged at the time, resulted in Marshall's arrest for misdemeanor battery, reports. Charges were dropped when neither party agreed to testify.
