ATLANTA (AP) - A jury in Atlanta has found Denver Broncos wide
receiver Brandon Marshall not guilty of misdemeanor battery.
The jury deliberated for about an hour before reaching the verdict on two counts of simple battery.
The case stemmed from a March 2008 argument with then-girlfriend
Rasheedah Watley at Marshall's downtown Atlanta condominium.
Marshall was suspended for last year's season opener after a series of domestic disputes. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had said a conviction in the Atlanta case could have led to a second suspension.
