Cincinnati Bengals running back and former Miami Hurricane star Mark Walton is in trouble with the law in Miami and will eventually be with his team and probably the NFL, too. This after Walton was arrested Friday afternoon after a dispute in a Miami parking garage turned physical.
Local 10 news in Miami had the latest late Saturday morning on the incident that led the Walton’s arrest:

Walton, who just completed his rookie year with the Bengals, allegedly got into the dispute with a woman that he did not know, according to the Miami Police Department. Their spokesperson told the media that the incident occurred around 4:30 p.m. in a parking garage over a dispute about Walton’s car blocking the entrance.
When the yet-to-be-identified woman apparently attempted to record Walton using her cell phone, Walton grabbed the phone and struggled with the woman trying to get it back. Walton was taken into custody on a charge of battery.
He bonded out of jail on Saturday morning.
The former Miami Hurricane was a 4th round pick of the Bengals a year ago who was active for 14 games but only carried the ball 14 times on the season for just 34 yards. He had an additional five catches for 41 yards on the year.
The Bengals fired Marvin Lewis at the end of the season and have just hired former Rams offensive coordinator Zach Taylor, as their new head coach. This obviously, will not sit well with the new regime’ being brought in to Cincinnati.
Depending on if and how the charges are resolved, Walton could be looking at least a one-game suspension from the NFL for violating the personal conduct policy.
Walton ran for over 1,000 yards and 14 touchdowns in his sophomore season of 2016, but was limited to just 428 yards and three scores after suffering a severe ankle injury five games into the 2017 season at Miami.
As a new station also notes in their item, Walton was arrested for DUI and impersonating a police officer in 2016 which got him suspended by the Hurricanes, but he was later cleared of those charges.
