While the Dallas Cowboys enjoy their time off after an extraordinary comeback season, former Cowboys running back Joseph Randle continues to rack up criminal offenses.
Back in 2015, Randle began the season as a starter for the team. Dallas’ success fell short after week two, when Tony Romo suffered a collarbone injury. Fifteen weeks later, Joseph Randle and the Cowboys finished last place in the worst division of the NFL. However, in the midst of the team’s drama on the field, Randle ran into a bunch of issues off the field that eventually led to his release from the team.
Randle has had several run ins with the law, resulting in five criminal charges and incarceration. According to reports, he has tried to hit people with a car, threatened to kill a jail official over phone privileges, and wrecked a television in a Kansas jail. The former baller, who has been locked up since June 19th, recently added an additional charge to his long list of offenses.
According to reports, the 2013 fifth round draft pick was charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of disorderly conduct after an altercation with another inmate at Sedgwick County Jail. In addition to the charges, Randle got hit with an additional $7,500 bond, totaling the amount to $59,000.
In response to the confrontation and additional charges, Randle said he was just defending himself.
“The state is charging me for running from somebody?” Randle asked, after being read his charges. “For getting punched in the face,” he said via satellite.
