Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, who was facing a domestic violence investigation, will not be charged.
Prosecutors in Wichita, Kansas, cited a lack of evidence in deciding not to charge Randle, according to Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram.
Randle was arrested in February on drug charges after police were called and told of a domestic violence case. The drug charges were later dropped, but police said the domestic violence investigation was ongoing. Now that investigation has wrapped up, and Randle is legally in the clear.
The fact that Randle won’t be charged doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t be suspended by the NFL, though. The league has made clear that it will conduct its own investigations when players are accused of domestic violence, and the league’s investigations may reach different conclusions than the legal system. There has been no word from the league on the status of any investigation.
