Joseph Randle arrested in Texas

Off-field issues helped cost running back Joseph Randle his spot on the Cowboys roster last season and he’s landed in trouble again to kick off the offseason.

Randle was arrested early Monday morning in Irving, Texas near the home of his ex-girlfriend. Irving police said that Randle went to her home hoping to get some sleep before driving back to his home in Kansas. Per the police, Randle “was not welcome there” and residents called the police.

When the police arrived, they found an outstanding warrant for speeding and Randle was arrested.

Randle was arrested in 2014 for shoplifting and again in February 2015 after an argument with his ex-girlfriend. Criminal charges were not filed in the case, but the NFL suspended Randle for four games under the personal conduct policy in November. Randle was already gone from the Cowboys at that point and he may have a hard time finding another door into the league this offseason.

    Kansas already has Sam Brownback, so Texas can keep Joseph Randle.

    Let me guess, he tried to steal her underwear?

  3. joenash72 says: Feb 1, 2016 11:53 AM

    Hopefully he still has that package of underwear…

  4. steelerben says: Feb 1, 2016 11:55 AM

    He just needed to stop by, catch a little rest, and scoop up some fresh underwear and a bottle of cologne…

    Jerry Jones thinks this guy oozes leadership ability.

  7. ninjapleazee says: Feb 1, 2016 12:08 PM

    Jerruh will re-sign him, he has all attributes to be team leader.

  8. PokeSalad says: Feb 1, 2016 12:14 PM

    This guy has more “issues” than an Adele album.

  9. ctiggs says: Feb 1, 2016 12:17 PM

    He has outstanding leadership qualities

    – Jerrah

    Did she leave some meat on the bone?

    Mr. Jones is good at mentoring young men from troubled backgrounds and helping them to become responsible adults, but he can’t save them all.

  13. whenwilliteverend says: Feb 1, 2016 12:54 PM

    That giant sucking sound was him flushing any hope for another chance at a roster spot going down the toilet.

  14. eagles58 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:58 PM

    Time for a new contract!!

  15. jonathankrobinson424 says: Feb 1, 2016 1:20 PM

  17. phootballphorever says: Feb 1, 2016 1:26 PM

    Dallas fans said he was the second coming of Emmitt Smith and everyone better look out.


  18. willycents says: Feb 1, 2016 1:33 PM

    Too broke to get a motel room. That is my guess.

  19. blumustang says: Feb 1, 2016 1:36 PM

    No Cowboy fan compared him to Emmitt! There is not a running back in the NFL in today’s league that can compare with Emmitt! What is sad is Jerry thought he could replace Murry with Randle, what an idiot!

  20. tostitochip says: Feb 1, 2016 1:52 PM

    the underwear bandit strikes again..I can see him and Manziel getting a reality tv show together as the Odd Couple

  21. nicofthenorthstar says: Feb 1, 2016 1:53 PM

    Emmitt’s greatest attributes were his durability (huge credit to him/his good fortune) and playing on a stacked offense.

    Why are we once again talking about the bonehead former NFLer who has had multiple run ins with the law but can’t bother to pay a speeding ticket?

    “Dallas fans said he was the second coming of Emmitt Smith”

    Ummm, no , no they didn’t.

  23. SparkyGump says: Feb 1, 2016 2:59 PM

    You can’t fix stupid.

  24. rrhoe says: Feb 1, 2016 3:07 PM

    Get a life people, she didn’t have a restraining order against him and if not for the “unpaid” ticket the police would’ve just told him to leave. I am quite sure once he got to the station he was given a court date, ROR’ed, and sent on his way.

    I’m not even a Dallas fan, but that sounds absurd. If you’re going to make stuff up, at least make it believable.

  26. whatjusthapped says: Feb 1, 2016 3:46 PM

    In the annuals of Cowboy criminal charges, this doesn’t even rank in the top 10. If you are not sniffing coke with hookers at a traffic light, then you will have a hard time cracking into the top 5.

    Minor stuff for Jerry’s boys.

  27. packmangamble says: Feb 1, 2016 3:53 PM

    The Cowboys should sign Johnny Manziel so that he can go out with Randle and keep an eye on him!

  28. firesnyder says: Feb 1, 2016 3:53 PM

    In 10 years he will look back on this 3 year time slice of his life, and he will say “My God, I could not have screwed myself any worse, right when I had the best opportunity in my life!” Whatever ghosts this man has are completely tearing him apart. Ugh.

  29. njraiderfan19 says: Feb 1, 2016 4:10 PM

    The man obviously has issues and needs help. I hope he gets it before he goes any further on his downward spiral. I can definitely see things getting out of control for him, that could be a danger to the people around him.

  30. web276 says: Feb 1, 2016 4:17 PM

    Half the people on these comments think he still plays for Dallas…the stupid jerry jones jokes are getting so old and unoriginal.

  31. levanderwilliams says: Feb 1, 2016 4:41 PM

    ATTN: ALL CURRENT NFL PLAYERS… See what happens when the money runs out?!

  32. mackcarrington says: Feb 1, 2016 4:46 PM

    “Some sleep” isn’t what he came by for.

    @ eagles1960 says:

    This from a fan whose team signed Michael Vick. Those are some pretty thin glass walls surrounding you, Einstein. You might just want to be a little more careful throwing those stones in that glass house. And btw, last time I checked, Dallas STILL has 5 more SB trophies in their case than the Eagles (even after the genius Chip Kelly was fired and took his smoothies West to San Fran).

    But haters are going to hate. That is what they do. Joseph obviously has mental issues. The guy needs therapy, and hopefully he gets it. It is a likelihood the guy has brain issues from all the punishing hits sustained from playing this game.

    “The Cowboys should sign Johnny Manziel so that he can go out with Randle and keep an eye on him”

    Or maybe the Packers should bring in Manziel so that he can help keep an eye on Johnny Jolly and his purple drank skills (Jolly actually went to prison, unlike Randle).

    Another hater attempting to throw stones in a glass house. Unbelievable. Great job of calling the kettle black.
