DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos star receiver Brandon Marshall could still face suspension from the NFL, even though a disorderly conduct charge stemming from a fight with his fiance was dropped in an Atlanta court Monday.

Municipal judge Clinton Deveaux dismissed the case after Marshall and his fiance, Michi Leshase Nogami-Campbell refused to testify against each other. Both had been charged.

Marshall may still be disciplined for repeated violations of the league's personal conduct code, which gives commissioner Roger Goodell authority to punish players apart from the judicial system.

League spokesman Greg Aiello tells the Associated Press "we will (still) look into it."

Marshall was jailed for five hours Sunday morning after his fourth arrest in three years.
