Dolphins RB Mark Walton Receives 6-Month Probation For Weapons Charge, All Other Charges Dismissed


According to Andy Slater, Dolphins RB Mark Walton received six months probation for pleading no contest to a misdemeanor weapons charge. 

The rest of the charges facing Walton were dropped, while his probation can also be reduced to three months with good behavior. 

Walton was arrested three times in less than three months, which ultimately led to his release from the Bengals. 

David Ovalle of the Miami Herald reported in April that Walton faced charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving stemming from a high-speed car chase.

Walton, 22, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2018. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $3,145,348 and was set to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season when the Bengals cut him.

In 2018, Walton appeared in 14 games for the Bengals and rushed for 34 yards while catching five passes for 41 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
