Cincinnati Bengals running back Mark Walton was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning in Miami on a battery charge. 

Per David Ovalle of the Miami Herald and Andy Slater of SlaterScoops.com, Walton was given a misdemeanor battery charge after being taken into custody by police. 

Ovalle added Walton has already been released from custody after posting bond.

Per Slater, the Miami Police Department said Walton got into an argument with two people when his car was blocking the entrance to a garage. 

Walton is alleged to have gotten into a "tussle" with a woman after he grabbed a cell phone she was using to record the altercation. 

The Bengals selected Walton in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL draft. He appeared in 14 games as a rookie, carrying the ball 14 times for 34 yards.
