Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is in trouble again.
Randle, projected for 2015 as the Cowboys' heir to NFL rushing champion DeMarco Murray, is now out of football but still in trouble as he was reportedly arrested on Tuesday on multiple charges, including assault on a law officer, according to a report from KSN-TV in Wichita, Kan.
Randle, 23, was released by Dallas earlier this month as the culmination of a series of problems, including his mental state after what sources tell CHQ came about when he received the NFL's harsh report on his arrest in February stemming from a domestic dispute that allegedly included drugs, gunplay and a punch of a car windshield.
The Cowboys stuck with Randle after that incident, which can on the heels of an October 2014 arrest for shoplifting cologne and underwear. He followed up that arrest by badmouthing teammates while at the jailhouse and then continuing to speak foolishly on the practice field, earning a reprimant from team leader Jason Witten.
Randle started the first six games of 2015 for the Cowboys, totalling 313 yards and four touchdowns on 76 carries. ... before his complaint of an oblique injury put him on the bench, to be replaced by Darren McFadden. A fifth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Randle totaled 507 yards and five touchdowns in his first two seasons with the Cowboys.
Randle is a free agent who has a four-game suspension attached to him ... if he does indeed have a football future at all. For now, he will face a battle defending himself for being arrested at Kansas Star Casino, just south of Wichita, when he was reportedly arrested on suspicion of criminal threat, assault on a law officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, and interference with law enforcement. As of Wednesday morning, Randle was reportedly still in a county jail on a $25,000 bond.
