That Does It: Miami Dolphins Running Back Is Out of a Job

To make the matter even worse, the pregnant woman was his girlfriend and he had just found out that he was to become a father this past Sunday.

Walton received a four-game suspension in early November for a violation of the NFL's conduct and substance abuse policies related to those arrests. The team said: "We hold our players to a high standard and take these matters very seriously". He was released by the Cincinnati Bengals after these incidents, and the Dolphins gave him another chance, signing him in May.

"We will have no further comment at this time", Grier said.

The Dolphins are now likely in the market for a new lead running back starting in 2020. The trio, along with De'Lance Turner, will carry the load for the rest of the season.

Charlie's Angels is now playing in cinemas across North America. "Being in a big franchise allows you to have it all", she said. During an interview with the Wall Street Journal , Elizabeth defended her film's reboot, citing Spider-man as an example.

Walton, a former University of Miami star, had been the Dolphins' featured back since they traded Kenyan Drake.

The suspension stemmed from Walton being arrested three times last offseason in his hometown of Miami.

A Florida court sentenced Walton in August to six months' probation after pleading no contest to a misdemeanour weapons charge. Walton was arrested after a auto chase with police.

Walton was arrested on drug charges in January, battery in February and a felony weapons charge in March, one in which he also was charged with resisting arrest, reckless driving and marijuana possession after leading police on a vehicle chase. Walton also had to attend driving school after the reckless-driving plea.
