THIS JUST IN -- Former Dallas Cowboy Joseph Randle arrested in Irving (@1053TheFan @CBSDFW @KRLD) https://t.co/x5kN82buKI2016-2-1 13:19:57
According to police, Randle attempted to enter his ex-girlfriend's home but was not granted entry. The residents then called police, and Randle was arrested around 3 a.m. CT after police found his outstanding warrant. Randle was taken to jail in Irving, Texas, and held on $359 bail. It is unknown whether he is still in custody at this time.
Dallas decided to cut Randle earlier this season in part due to reportedly learning Randle had been betting on sports, per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News. When asked about the accusations, Randle replied "no truth at all," per Drew Davison of the Star Telegram.
A 2013 fifth-round pick by the Cowboys, Randle has been mired in legal issues throughout his NFL career. He was arrested in October 2014 on shoplifting charges after allegedly trying to take underwear and cologne from a mall. Those charges were later dismissed as part of a plea deal.
Four months later, however, Randle was again investigated by police for an alleged domestic violence incident. An ex-girlfriend filed for a protection order against the former Oklahoma State star after he allegedly threatened her and their son. The woman said Randle pointed a gun at her friend before smashing out the window of a car.
Police later investigated the incident but did not find enough evidence to charge Randle with a crime. Despite not being charged, Randle was later suspended four games under the NFL's personal conduct policy. That suspension came after the Cowboys released Randle early in the 2015 season amid concerns about his conduct.
Within weeks of his release, Randle was in trouble again following an incident at a Kansas casino. He allegedly caused a disturbance after being asked to leave the facility and was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, one for his actions inside and outside of the casino.
Randle has not been with an NFL team since his release from the Cowboys.
