The officer answered the apartment in a suburb of Miami Davy around 4:15 in the morning and found out that Walton was arguing with a woman, according to a police report.
The report said that the woman was in her fifth week of pregnancy and told Walton that it was his baby.
“During the argument, Walton pushed (a woman) against the wall and hit her face and head several times. I noticed (in a woman) a swelling in my left eye, ”Officer Davy answered in his report. The victim’s name has been edited in the report.
The report states that Walton is charged with aggravated assault on a pregnant woman. Walton remained in Broward County Prison awaiting a hearing on Wednesday that would determine his bond status.
Walton's lawyer, Michael Gottlieb, said he spoke with his client on Tuesday. He told CNN: "I do not believe Mr. Walton is guilty of the charges, allegedly."
In a statement, the Dolphins said they abandoned Walton.
“Early in the morning, we learned about a police case involving Mark Walton,” said Dolphins CEO Chris Grier. “We keep our players at a high level and take these issues very seriously. We will have no more comments. ”
Cincinnati Bengals chose Walton, who played at the University of Miami, in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL draft. Bengals abandoned Walton after being arrested three times in the offseason of 2019.
At the time of the last arrest, drug and reckless driving charges were dismissed as part of a plea bargain; According to Gottlieb, Walton received a six-month probationary sentence for a weapon charge, which was reduced to an administrative offense, and he served three weeks. According to the lawyer, allegations of incidents in January and February were also dropped.
CNN was unable to independently confirm the decisions in three cases.
