Marshall’s former New York Jets teammate Robby Anderson was charged with resisting arrest at a Miami music festival Sunday, allegedly arguing with security guards before having an altercation with a police officer.
According to the Miami New Times, the arresting officer was Miami Lt. Javier Ortiz, the city’s police union president, who has “a long resume of ethically dubious actions, excessive-force complaints, and even one tasing incident at another Bayfront Park music festival.”
Marshall tweeted out a link to the Miami New Times article, followed by a call to action for Ortiz to be removed from his post.
Ortiz had apparently also arrested former NFL linebacker Jonathan Vilma in 2009. Vilma claimed Ortiz waved a gun in his face, screamed at him, and arrested the linebacker on false charges that were eventually dropped.
