Just days before Brandon Marshall was traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Chicago Bears, the wide receiver punched a woman in the face during a fight at a nightclub in New York City, according to the New York Post.

On Monday evening, the alleged victim in the scuffle filed a complaint with police.

Per the Post report, Marshall struck Christin Myles in the left eye after an altercation with another unidentified athlete and a group of people celebrating Myles' birthday. The Post conceded that the punch that Marshall allegedly landed on Myles may have been intended for someone else in the scrum.

Harvey Steinberg, Marshall's lawyer, released a statement on Wednesday denying the Post's report:

"Brandon Marshall was the key note speaker at a charitable event in New York. After the event was over he, his wife and close friends attended a function at a local club. While at the function a fight broke out NOT involving Mr. Marshall or his friends."

ESPN reports that Steinberg said the 27-year-old will cooperate with the investigation.

Marshall, who revealed last summer that he has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, has had several run-ins with the law over the years.

Back in 2006 when he was with the Broncos, Marshall was involved in a New Year's Eve fight at a Denver nightclub that -- according to former teammate Javon Walker -- contributed to a drive-by shooting that killed Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

He was arrested three times from 2007 to 2009 and was suspended for three games before the 08-09 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Last year, Marshall was involved in a domestic dispute with his wife which resulted in her stabbing him with a kitchen knife. Marshall, who made a full recovery, claimed his wife did not stab him despite the domestic battery charge brought against her.
