Mark Walton gets arrested yet again; held in Miami-Dade
Mark Walton is facing a charge of armed robbery with a firearm or deadly weapon. The troubled 24-year-old former Miami Dolphins player is set to appear in court on Wednesday.
Miami-Dade County records show correction officers booked Walton, a former NFL running back, shortly before 5 p.m. on Tuesday at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
Walton celebrates his 25th birthday next week. He played for the University of Miami before the Cincinnati Bengals drafted him during the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Miami Dolphins signed Walton on May 12, 2019. The NFL has suspended him for violating the league’s personal conduct and substance abuse policies during offseason arrests and reinstated him last year.
This is a developing story.
