Marshall, and a woman in the vehicle with him, were arrested in Columbus, Ga., on Thursday, according to WRBL, a television station in Columbus, which reported it Saturday.
Marshall, 31, has been with the CFL club since 2018 and was a West Division all-star in 2021. He was previously a quarterback at Auburn University and spent two years in the NFL (2015-16).
The six-foot-one, 207-pound Rochelle, Ga., native had 31 tackles and five interceptions in 17 games for the Riders in 2023.
“The Club is disappointed and taking this matter seriously. We are currently gathering more information and will provide an update soon after,” the team said in a statement.
