Miami RB Mark Walton sees DUI charges dropped

Three months ago, Miami running back Mark Walton was arrested on DUI charges and it was a pretty big hit for the Hurricanes. However, they have lucked up after those charges were dropped Monday morning.

Walton was arrested after police detected “a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his mouth.” He then failed a field sobriety test and then blew a 0.059 and a 0.060, over the legal limit for a person under the age of 21.

However, it was reported by Andy Slater that Walton’s charges were dropped and he will face no prosecution in the arrest. This came after his lawyer’s criticized Miami police, saying that it has taken too long to determine if he was guilty.

Mark Walton came out of spring practice as the team’s top running back and should remain in that position going forward. He racked up over 1,000 all-purpose yards and 10 total touchdowns during the 2015 season.
