Almost three months after an arrest for DUI, the Florida state attorney's office dropped the charges against Miami running back Mark Walton on Monday morning.
An assistant state attorney said in court Monday that the state did not intend to prosecute Walton.
Walton was arrested after police detected "a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his mouth". The arrest affidavit said Walton, 19, failed a roadside sobriety test and given a Breathalyzer test when taken into custody.
His suspension was "indefinite" and could be lifted at any time.
A blood alcohol concentration of 0.02 percent or above is considered the legal limit in Florida for drivers under the age of 21.
Walton ran for 461 yards and nine touchdowns last season, his freshman year at Miami. He was also charged for driving with a suspended license.
First-year Miami coach Mark Richt will now be left to decide if Walton will receive any team discipline. With Walton, who rose to the top of the depth chart during spring practice, and talented junior Joe Yearby, that's exactly what Miami's got going into 2016.
Walton's arrest was concerning, since it came with reports that he was being investigated for impersonating an officer and groping a woman.
