MULVANE, Kansas – Former Dallas Cowboy Joseph Randle was arrested Tuesday night in Mulvane at Kansas Star Casino.
KSN has confirmed Randle was arrested on suspicion of criminal threat, assault on a law officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, and interference with law enforcement. He was released just before noon from the Sumner County Jail.
According to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department, Randle was asked to leave. He was escorted to the cage to cash out when he apparently got into a scuffle with a casino security employee. He was arrested by a Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission Agent. Officials believe Randle was drinking.
Earlier this month, Randle was released from the Dallas Cowboys for a personal issue. Back in February, he was arrested for possession of marijuana after police received a call about domestic violence. Those charges were eventually dropped.
Randle played high school football at Southeast Wichita High School before moving on to Oklahoma State. He went on to play for the Cowboys.
In October 2014, Randle was arrested for shoplifting at Stonebriar Centre Mall in Dallas.
Randle was stopped by Dillards loss prevention employees and detained. When police arrived, an investigation determined Randle had “removed items from Dillards without purchasing them,” police said.
Police say he had cologne and underwear valued between $50 and $500.
