A former top college football and NFL running back has reportedly been arrested again. Police reportedly arrested former Miami Dolphins running back Mark Walton early Thursday morning.

According to a report from WSVN, police responded to a domestic dispute call at 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning. Walton allegedly engaged in a verbal altercation with the mother of his child.

Police determined there was no physical abuse during the altercation. However, Walton violated a restraining order the woman filed against him in Broward County from a prior incident.

Police arrested Walton following the incident. According to Miami Herald reporter Barry Jackson, this is Walton's fifth arrest in the past year.

In February, Walton allegedly engaged in an argument with a couple near his condo before police arrived and he was arrested. That arrest came during his time with the Cincinnati Bengals, who released him soon after.

But that wasn't the last arrest for Walton.

In November, Walton was arrested on and charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant person - the mother of his child. That arrest came while Walton was serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's conduct and substance abuse policy.

The Dolphins waived Walton following that November arrest. Now he appears to be in trouble once again.
