A younger brother of Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been arrested in Colorado after what one local television channel described as a crime spree, online jail records showed Thursday. Bijon Massie-Marshall, 23, is being held on $800,000 bond at the Arapahoe County Jail on the outskirts of Denver on one felony charge of aggravated robbery and one variable charge of being a fugitive from justice, the jail's website showed.
Denver's 9NEWS reported that Massie-Marshall is accused of committing a number of offenses in Colorado. Meanwhile, an arrest warrant was issued for Massie-Marshall out of Cook County for a misdemeanor retail theft charge from January in Evanston. The $30,000 warrant was issued in July after he failed to show up for a court hearing on that case, according to prosecutors and court records.
Citing court records, the channel said Massie-Marshall is alleged to have stolen a car in Colorado's Douglas County while on probation in June 2013, and that county prosecutors filed charges for aggravated motor vehicle theft in May 2014. It said he was arrested in June and posted bond in August.
He is then accused of robbing an elderly Denver woman at her home in October with what appeared to be a handgun. 9NEWS said Massie-Marshall was arrested, bonded out, and that four days later he was wearing a GPS tracker when he allegedly robbed a store with what appeared to be a handgun. He was arrested again on Oct. 21.
Massie-Marshall is due to appear in court next in Arapahoe County on Nov. 26, jail records showed. It was not immediately clear if he had legal representation.
