Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle arrested for assaulting officer in Kansas

Ex-Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was arrested Tuesday night for assaulting an officer at a Kansas casino.

KSN-TV reported that Randle was arrested for assault on a law officer, suspicion of criminal threat, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and interference with law enforcement.

Randle was booked into the Sumner County Jail and remained there Wednesday morning on a $25,000 bond.

The Cowboys released Randle earlier this month after a turbulent past year and a half.

Randle was a backup last season when he first made headlines for shoplifting cologne and underwear from a department store at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco.

Randle was arrested in Wichita, Kansas during the offseason in February. Officers were called to a hotel room on a domestic violence call and Randle was arrested for unlawful possession of marijuana.

Charges were eventually dropped, but Randle was given a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy for the Wichita incident after his release from the Cowboys.

Randle also made a call to Irving police in October and asked them to perform a welfare check on his girlfriend. Police found nothing wrong, but the player admitted to police he was paranoid. Cowboys officials reportedly became concerned about Randle’s emotional well-being.
