Walton was involved in a verbal argument with a woman on SE 5th St. in downtown Miami after his vehicle was obstructing the entrance of the building’s parking garage, a Miami public information officer told NFL.com.
The verbal argument escalated into a physical altercation. Walton allegedly snatched a phone from the female victim while she was recording the incident and a tussle ensued when she attempted to get her phone back. Both Walton and the female victim suffered minor scratches.
A Miami native and former Miami Hurricanes player, Walton was drafted by the Bengals in the fourth round of the 2018 draft.
In his rookie year, he compiled 19 touches for 75 total yards in 14 games played.
Add in the preseason and Mark Walton carried the football 36 times for 55 yards. That's a 1.5 yard per carry average.
That's yard per carry. Not yardS per carry. https://t.co/ZhqMdgW3Qs

I’m guessing he won’t be on the Bengals much longer.
