Walton was arrested Friday near Downtown Miami.

He’s facing a battery charge after police say he got into an argument with a couple.

According to police, the incident started when the couple asked Walton to move his car, which was blocking the entrance to a parking garage.

The woman started recording video on her cell phone, and police say Walton snatched the phone away from her, leading to a fight.

Authorities say both Walton and the woman suffered minor scratches.

Walton played for the Hurricanes from 2015 to 2017, racking up a total of 2,630 yards and scoring 28 touchdowns.

He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Bengals.
