Mark Walton has been released by the Miami Dolphins after they were made aware of a police matter involving him.
Walton has been charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman. Walton is accused of pushing her into a wall and punching her several times in her face and head. The woman is five weeks pregnant and Walton is the father.
Walton was through two games of a four-game league suspension for violating the NFL conduct and substance abuse policy relating to his three offseason arrests between January and March. He was released by the Cincinnati Bengals after these incidents, and the Dolphins gave him another chance, signing him in May.
