For the third time in a year, Cincinnati Bengals running back Mark Walton has been arrested.

According to the Miami Herald, Walton is facing felony charges for carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession, and reckless driving.

The arrest stems from a high-speed chase on March 12 in North Miami-Dade. Following the police chase, Walton got out of his vehicle and attempted to escape by foot, after which he was shot in the back by a police taser.

During the police search of his BMW, officers found 14 grams of marijuana, a 9 mm carbine rifle and several fully loaded clips, police said.

Previously, Walton had been arrested for misdemeanor battery and marijuana possession.

The former Miami Hurricanes star turned pro last year and was drafted in the fourth round by Cincinnati. He only touched the ball 19 times as a rookie for a grand total of 75 yards.

It’s hard to imagine Walton will remain a member of the Bengals much longer.
