Troubled Ex-Cowboys Running Back Arrested on Suspicion of Rape Charge

Police in Kansas have arrested ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle on suspicion of rape charges this week.

Records show that Randle was booked into Sedgwick County Jail at around 3:40 a.m. Friday. Details surrounding the arrest are unclear, but the 26-year-old was being held without bond.

The troubled Randle was arrested a half-dozen times in a 17-month span 2015 and 2016.

Randle was a Dallas running back in 2015-2016 season. Kansas police launched an investigation into Randle in February 2015, after responding to a domestic disturbance call involving Randle and Dalia Jacobs, the mother of his child, at a hotel room. He served time after being convicted of aggravated battery and burglary.

Randle has been in jail in Wichita for most of the past two years for that case.

A slow and wet course got even slower and wetter on Friday, and golfers were spinning approach shots completely off of greens. He added another birdie on the first hole, his 10th of the day, to get to seven-under.

Randle is now on probation after attempting to run people over with his vehicle after losing at a drinking game back in 2016. The Cowboys cut him later that season after he appeared in six games. It said he then backed his vehicle into some of the partygoers. In June, a Kansas judge accepted the recommendation of Randle's attorneys and gave him five years probation stemming from that incident.

Randle, who spent three seasons in Dallas, had nine touchdowns and 822 yards in his 35-game National Football League career after playing for Oklahoma State, where he tallied more than 3,000 yards in three seasons.

This wasn't Randle's first run-in with the law this year, as he was released temporarily from federal custody after being in jail for two years.

He then went on to play for Oklahoma State and worked his way up to the starting spot for the Dallas Cowboys before being released by the team mid-season in 2015.
