NEW YORK (AP) — The lawyer for Brandon Marshall says no charges will be brought against the Chicago Bears wide receiver for an altercation outside a nightclub in March.

Harvey Steinberg says Marshall won't be charged after a woman filed a complaint that he punched her in the face outside Manhattan's Marquee club. Steinberg says: "We maintained all along he is a victim and there is no basis to believe these charges."

A spokesman for the New York City Police Department says they are still investigating the complaint. Detective Brian Sessa of the NYPD said Thursday the case is still open.

Marshall was traded by Miami to Chicago in March.
