CelebNSports247.com reports that the news is disgusting to report learning that another NFL player is caught beating his girlfriend.
Here is what we’ve learned via reports:
Davie police state the unnamed woman and Walton 1st got into an argument around 4:15 a.m. – The argument escalated leading to Walton pushing his girlfriend “against a wall and punched her several times in the head and face.”
The police report reveals that he left the victim with swelling on her left eye.
Dolphins general manager Chris Grier released this statement:
We were made aware of a police matter earlier this morning regarding Mark Walton. We hold our players to a high standard and take these matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time.
Walton was already on thin ice stemming from three arrests he occurred the last offseason on a variety of charges, including weapons, drugs, and battery.
In early November, Walton received a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL’s conduct and substance abuse policies related to those arrests.
If you recall, the Bengals released the 22-year-old in April and he signed with the Dolphins in May.
Isn’t ironic that his idol is Adrian Peterson, who had his own legal issues for beating his son:
