Former Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Arrested for 5th Time in 17 Months

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, pictured on September 13, 2015, is arrested for the fifth time in 17 months

Officials flagged former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle for the fifth time in the last 17 months on Sunday morning.

Wichita, Kansas, police arrested Randle for three counts of aggravated battery, marijuana possession, and criminal damage. Randle allegedly struck a trio of men with his vehicle, resulting in only minor injuries, and then forced his way into a home.

The Sedgwick County Jail holds Randle on $100,000 bail.

Randle’s recent arrests involve allegations of shoplifting underwear, domestic violence, and fighting with casino security after causing a disturbance at a black-jack table. The Cowboys, generous with second chances, released Randle after two arrests.

In parts of three seasons in Dallas, Randle rushed for nine touchdowns and 4.5 yards per carry. The Cowboys finally cut him during the 2015 season, one report claims, when they discovered his involvement in sports gambling. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello maintained in the wake of that report: “We have never had any information relayed to us alleging that Joseph Randle bet on sports.”
