Former Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Facing New Felony Charge

NFL Players Arrested This Offseason - Joseph Randle

I think it’s safe to say that Former Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will NEVER see an NFL field again unless he buys a ticket to sit with the fans—that is, if he can actually stay out of jail long enough.

In March, Joseph Randle was arrested for the 6th time in 17 months.

According to records obtained by The Wichita Eagle, Randle is facing yet another felony charge after he threatened a deputy while in jail.

“Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle wracked up a new felony charge Tuesday connected to an alleged threat made against a Sedgwick County Jail deputy while Randle was incarcerated on two other pending felony cases, according to court and Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office records.

The deputy was in one of the jail’s detention pods shortly after 8 p.m. on May 14 “enforcing the rules” when Randle allegedly “threatened the deputy for doing so,” sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Lin Dehning said in an e-mail. Specific details of the threat have not been released.

The agency turned the investigation over to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution. The district attorney decided to charge Randle with one count of criminal threat, which carries a presumptive sentence of five to 17 months in prison.”

Randle’s other felony charges include him hitting 3 people with his car, and dodging a law enforcement officer trying to serve him with a felony warrant issued after he failed to show up for a court date.
