Report: Dolphins sign Mark Walton, who has three pending criminal cases pending

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Former University of Miami star running back Mark Walton was recently cut by the Cincinnati Bengals after his third arrest. Now he’s landed back in South Beach with the Miami Dolphins.

Field Yates of ESPN reports the Dolphins signed Walton after he tried out at their rookie minicamp.

The NFL has yet to issue any disciplinary action following Walton’s string of three arrests in less than three months. It stands to reason even if he does make it onto Miami’s final roster this year he will be subject to a suspension.

Walton’s most recent arrest occurred in mid-March. Miami-Dade police arrested him on felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving following a high-speed chase that ended with Walton running away from the cops even after he’d been tased.

Previously, Walton was arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession (in January) and misdemeanor battery (in February).

During his rookie season with the Bengals in 2018, Walton rushed for just 34 yards on 14 carries, appearing in 14 games.
