When you make $9.5 million a year, you don’t need to pay for taxis - just ask Brandon Marshall

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was handcuffed and briefly detained by Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies after he was accused of fleeing to evade paying a $142 cab fare…Peterson Pierre, a driver for Miami Springs Taxi Company, picked him up at the resort and, after first going to Miami International Airport, they eventually ended up at the Fort Lauderdale airport. “He didn’t know where he wanted to go,” Pierre told South Florida Times on Monday. “When I woke him up and told him he had to pay, he said he wasn’t and started arguing for me to take him home.”...He entered the airport lobby and then Pierre saw him leave through a different exit and jump into another cab…McGuire said Marshall “was simply getting someone to help translate.”

"McGuire" would be Brandon's agent Kennard - you know, the same guy who advised Peyton Hillis not to play because he had a sore throat.
