Bengals RB Mark Walton Arrested

Mark Walton‘s offseason has gotten off to a poor start. The Bengals running back was reportedly arrested in Miami last night (via Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk.com).

It’s uncertain whether Walton was arrested on Friday night or early Saturday morning. Either way, the running back is reportedly facing a battery charge. David Ovalle of the The Miami Herald tweets that the Walton was taken into custody and has already posted bond.

Following a standout career at Miami, the Bengals selected Walton in the fourth round of the 2018 draft. The 21-year-old was slotted behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard during his rookie campaign, running for 34 yards on 14 carries in 14 games. He also added another five receptions for 41 yards, and he compiled five tackles on special teams.

Walton could face punishment from the NFL, putting at least the start of his 2019 campaign in doubt. The Bengals have all of their 2018 running backs under contract for next season, including undrafted rookie Quinton Flowers.

        If you were trying to make a joke it failed, Bell not having any legal trouble in 3 years and Brown hasn’t been arrested for anything.

          Great point. Because if you don’t get arrested for throwing furniture off a balcony and nearly hurting a kid, it doesn’t count.

            Florida taxpayers definitely want to finance a state penal institution for serial pillow throwers.

    Wouldn’t be the NFL Police Blotter without hearing about another Bungle getting arrested…
