Ex-Cowboy Joseph Randle Arrested After Assaulting Cop at Kansas Casino
November has not been a pleasant month for Joseph Randle.
At the beginning of the month, he was cut by the Dallas Cowboys due to his decreasing production on the field and several distractions off of it. Then he was suspended by the league for four games as a result of an incident back in February, in which he threatened the mother of his child with a gun and was booked for possession of marijuana.
And now, in his latest off-field debacle, the former Cowboys running back was arrested at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kansas, following an altercation with police and security officers.
Here are the details, via TMZ:
We spoke with Fred Waller — an enforcement agent with the Kansas Gaming and Racing Commission — who tells us Randle was belligerent on the casino floor and was asked to leave.
Waller says Randle initially left … but then returned to the casino. He was confronted by a KGRC agent … but instead of obeying the officer, Randle tried to fight him.
Other agents jumped in and took Randle into custody. He’ll most likely be banned from the casino.
Fighting police and security at a casino is not as funny as getting booked for stealing underwear and cologne from a department store, but it is just as sad and stupid.
I know the Cowboys have a penchant for picking up trouble-makers, but I doubt these arrests are going to help Randle get his job back anytime soon.
