Georgia Authorities File Charges Against Broncos' Marshall

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors in Georgia have filed two counts of simple battery against Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall stemming from a 6-month-old domestic violence complaint.

The charges, filed Sept. 10, allege Marshall threw his ex-girlfriend on a bed, slapped her, and damaged an apartment.

Marshall said Thursday he had been waiting for charges to be filed, but it wasn't clear why they came so long after the complaint.
