Marshall said that on the night of July 4, he was with friends at a restaurant in downtown Miami, near the scene of a shooting. Marshall said a woman who was directing traffic as people fled ordered police to stop him. He said they handcuffed him and threatened him with a Taser for resisting. He was released shortly thereafter.
“They told me, ‘Look, we’re not going to take you in as long as you keep this between us,’” Marshall said.
Now, they’re apparently taking a closer look at the incident.
Miami police told The Denver Post on Thursday that an investigation is open and that they could not comment or provide further details until it is closed.
Marshall has knelt during the national anthem during each of the Broncos’ first two games and has lost two local sponsorship deals as a result of his actions. He met with Denver Police Chief Robert White last week.
