NEW YORK (AP) — The jury at a civil trial has decided that a California woman did not prove she was punched by New York Jets receiver Brandon Marshall outside a Manhattan nightclub four years ago.
The decision was rendered Friday.
On Thursday, Marshall told the jury that he feared for his life while fleeing the nightclub after fights broke out.
Christin Myles, of Chino, California, testified earlier that she knew it was Marshall who punched her in March 2012 because she saw his tattooed forearm. Her lawsuit sought unspecified damages.
Marshall said he did not punch her. Video seemed to show his arms covered by sleeves when he was outside.
Marshall was never criminally charged.
