Report: Mark Walton charged with battery of pregnant woman

The Dolphins waived running back Mark Walton on Tuesday and said that they made the move after discovering his involvement in a police matter.

More information about the nature of that police matter has come to light and it is hard to imagine any team claiming Walton off of waivers after hearing about what allegedly happened.

Andy Slater of FOX Sports 640 was the first to report that Walton was arrested after allegedly punching a pregnant woman in the face and head several times early on Tuesday morning. A police document states the woman is five weeks pregnant and that Walton is the father.

Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports that Walton has been charged with aggravated battery as a result of the incident.

Walton is supended for two more weeks and the nature of this charge would make him a prime candidate for the Commissioner’s Exempt list if he’s to land on another roster at some point later this season. Given that he’d be paid for not playing during any time on that list, Walton’s future probably isn’t going to include much football.

  1. What is it with some of these athletes thinking it is ok to hit a woman? I know anybody can make somebody else angry but violence is not the answer.

  2. Too bad his name’s not “Tyreek HIll” because instead of ending in his release, he would’ve earned an extension and continued love from “Chiefs Kingdom”.

  3. Of course he was waived. He is not as good as Tyreek Hill or Zeke Elliott at football to commit crimes like this. Get your skills up and you can abuse all the women you want . 😒

  4. The problem with a fire-sale for draft picks is that you need to find stand-ins to fill the voids. And the pickings can be slim. In this case the Dolphins used a guy that probably nobody else needed to touch as his track record imminently indicated this outcome. But whatever it takes to win someday I guess.

  5. So your telling me as bad as he sucked as a football player . He sucks even more at being a decent person .

  6. Sometimes you just need to know when to walk away. Sadly, we get to quick to prove to the world that “I ain’t no punk” but in these situations, have way more to lose.

    Don’t get me wrong… “you don’t hit women, especially my wife/GF; especially a pregnant woman, ESPECIALLY if it is my wife/GF who is pregnant” should be the first thing that goes through your mind. But if that isn’t, then the fact you have every to lose should go through your mind.

  7. Violence violence violence, it seems for some it is the only way of getting anything!
    Anybody want to bet this was about Money and child support?

  8. Somebody, anybody, please give me a valid reason Tyreek Hill is still allowed to play in the NFL.

    I can’t believe women’s groups aren’t outraged.

  9. Andy Reid on line one he needs a RB and he and Kansas City loves those who have that edge to beat pregnant woman.

  10. At least the chiefs dumped kareem hunt. What does it say about the Browns?
    —-
    It shows a fast receiver (Tyreek Hill) is more valuable than a fast running back (Kareem Hunt).

  11. Seems to be a common thing among RBs in the College/NFL ranks.

    Maybe they feel inferior to women, especially pregnant women.

  12. It always amazes me that some of these guys lack enough impulse control to prevent themselves from losing millions of dollars.

    ANOTHER GM Grier poor decision, glad he has final say on the 20 draft picks coming up next year.
    Dolphins are doomed for many years to come!

    Grier didnt draft him. He was a waiver claim and they just cut him. It cost them nothing. Know what you’re talking about before making a statement that makes you sound stupid. But then again..Mortimer in Miami sounds like the most fairweather thing I’ve ever heard lol.

    ————————————-

    Not until the video came out they didn’t. As for what it say about the Browns, it says they are being run by the same guy that drafted Hill & Hunt in the first place John ‘Just Win’ Dorsey

  15. He was SO close to winning the “go immediately to hell” sweepstakes !!

    Which is hitting a pregnant woman who is a minor.

    He should have held out.

    Yes it WAS a poor decision. Walton had been dropped from the Bengals after being arrested 3 times in less than 6 months. Real character guy. So, Miami keeps him and Ballage and lets Drake go.. and on top of that, give up their #1 pick from last year who is young, looks like a future star and is on his rookie contract. Grier is clueless and Flores is in way over his head.

  17. “More information about the nature of that police matter has come to light and it is hard to imagine any team claiming Walton off of waivers after hearing about what allegedly happened.”

    They worship guys like this in Kansas City, don’t be surprised if they open up a roster spot for him so he can buddy up with Hill and learn how to break the arms of small children to go along with spousal abuse.

  18. Hopefully the women is alright. As for Walton I can only shake my head at this point and ask when does this guy learn from his mistakes. Shameful.

    Havent seen a RB this stupid in Miami since Lawrence Phillips

    ——————-

    Cecil Collins was another Dolphin running back who thought rules of society didn’t apply to him.

    He didn’t say it was a draft decision; he said it was a poor decision. Grier has had many of those. He kept Jones. He forced out Minkah. He got rid of Drake. He spent a pick on a QB and then is fine with not playing him. (Fitz was no better, don’t fool yourself) He looked at Walton’s history and signed him anyway. His personnel decisions seem to be pre-approved by the FPA. His Tunsil decision got two 1st rounders but one of them will go to replace Tunsil. Grier’s talent evaluating ability is suspect and he has demonstrated that he is willing to overlook almost anything to get a player he likes. Drafting Tua #1 in spite of his injury would be the most Grier thing he could do. Grier may be a nice guy but his bonafides are non-existent and yet HE is endowed with all those picks. The odds that he drafts all the studs that hopeful fans think he will are slim to none. The one decision he has gotten right in the last 8 months is one that only existed because of a previous bad decision. I hope I am wrong on Grier (nobody wants to watch their team implode) but history shows it is more likely we will all be wondering WTH happened next year.

  21. Forget football, this is a shocking incident. The guy needs to sort himself out. And if he did happen to be the greatest player ever, I would hope tha Dolphins and every team would cut ties with this player.
