Cincinnati Bengals running back Mark Walton is facing a battery charge after police say he got into an argument with a couple in Miami.
The Miami Herald reports the 21-year-old Walton posted bond and was released from Miami-Dade County jail.
According to police, Walton’s car was blocking the entrance to the parking garage for his condo building, and an argument ensued when a couple in another car asked Walton to move his vehicle.

According to police, Walton and the woman each suffered scratches in the altercation.
The Bengals drafted Walton in the fourth round last year. Walton played sparingly as a rookie, notching just 14 carries for 34 yards. He caught five passes for 41 yards.
