According to TMZ Sports, Maualuga was arrested for battery early Saturday morning in Miami.
Maualuga, 30, tallied 25 total tackles in six games with the Dolphins after signing a one-year deal in August.
The USC product is no stranger to run-ins with the law.
He wound up pleading guilty after initially entering a not guilty plea.
Two years later, Maualuga was charged with misdemeanor assault after he allegedly punched an employee at a bar in Cincinnati. The charge was ultimately dismissed after Maualuga settled the case in mediation.
