This guy has a serious issue.
Back in February, Cincinnati Bengals running back Mark Walton was arrested and was charged with one count of misdemeanor battery.
That incident seem rather minor to his most recent incident after he got himself arrested for the third time this offseason after Walton surrendered to authorities in Miami on Thursday to face charges stemming from a March 12 incident.
He is set “to face felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving stemming from a high-speed car chase that happened on the night of March 12 in North Miami-Dade,” according to Miami Herald.
“According to court documents, Miami-Dade police officers tried to pull over Walton’s rented BMW because it was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. The car abruptly pulled over in the front yard of a home in the 2300 block of Northwest 86th Street.
One officer saw Walton getting out of the car and ordered the him to the ground. The speedy running back fell to the ground, the warrant said, but then “sprang to his feet” and ran off.
During the foot chase, an officer shot Walton in the back with a Taser stun gun, the warrant said. But Walton dislodged the electrified prongs, ran off and vanished, police said.
Officers searched the car and found 14 grams of marijuana, a 9 mm carbine rifle and several fully loaded clips, police said. The rifle had been legally purchased by the running back, records show. Walton had also rented the BMW in his own name, police said. The officer who fired the stun gun also identified Walton as the man who led him on a chase.”
Walton served as the #3 running back on the Bengals during his rookie campaign, finishing with 14 carries for 34 yards and five catches for 41 yards.
