Former Miami Dolphins RB Mark Walton has charges of battery against pregnant woman dropped
Former Miami Dolphins running back Mark Walton had his aggravated battery charge against a pregnant woman dropped by the state of Florida on Wednesday.
Attorney Michael Gottlieb told multiple news outlets that Florida has dropped the case following a months-long investigation.
In November, Walton was accused of pushing a woman, who he found out was carrying his child days earlier, against a wall and punching her "several times in the face or head," according to the Davie (Florida) police report obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

The Dolphins waived the 23-year-old shortly after his arrest. The Miami native remains a free agent, but league spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN potential discipline is still under review.

Walton was arrested three times between January and March of last year, which preceded his April 2019 release from the Cleveland Browns. He was cut halfway through a four-game suspension by the league for violating the conduct and substance abuse policy.
