Rey Maualuga is being waived by the Miami Dolphins following his battery arrest in Florida early Saturday morning, according to multiple reports.

Miami radio host Andy Slater of WINZ reports that Maualuga was at a club Saturday morning and refused to pay $40 he allegedly owed for a tab. Slater says Maualuga grabbed the victim by the throat when asked to pay again.

Maualuga, who had a drunken driving incident he pleaded guilty to in 2010, had only played six games with the Dolphins this season.
