Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard was arrested for domestic battery following a fight with his fiancee over a purse that wasn't hers.

According to TMZ Sports, Howard, 26, and his fiancee fought over a purse Howard purchased that wasn't a Christmas gift for her.

His fiancee told police Howard grabbed her arms and pushed her against a mirrored wall in a bathroom of their Davie, Florida home.

Responding officers observed "visible scratches and redness on her arm" and "redness and an abrasion" on her right elbow.

Howard was charged with domestic battery and booked into the Broward County Jail, hours after the Dolphins upset the New England Patriots on Sunday. Howard had missed the game because of a knee injury, according to Fox News.

The Dolphins released a statement on Monday. "We are aware of the situation and currently gathering information," the Dolphins told ESPN. "We will have no further comment at this time."

The Miami Dolphins waived running back Mark Walton following his arrest early Tuesday for hitting a pregnant woman.

According to a police report obtained by ESPN, Walton is accused of pushing the woman into a wall and punching her in her face and head.

The woman is reportedly five weeks pregnant with Walton's baby, according to ESPN.

Walton, a 22-year-old Miami native, led the Dolphins with 201 rushing yards on a 3.8 yards-per-carry average and 15 receptions for 89 yards this season. But he couldn't overcome his off-field troubles.

Walton was 2 games into a four-game league suspension for violating the NFL conduct and substance abuse policies related to two arrests during the off season earlier this year.

Walton accepted a plea deal for his most serious felony offense for carrying a concealed weapon during his March arrest after a police chase.

The plea deal reduced his charge to a second-degree misdemeanor open-carry. He was released by the Cincinnati Bengals after those arrests, but the Dolphins gave him another chance by signing him in May, according to ESPN.

The Dolphins released a statement after Walton's dismissal on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

"We hold our players to a high standard and take these matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time," general manager Chris Grier said in a statement.
