Wichita Police Sergeant Joe Kennedy said the latest incident involving Randle occurred around 3 a.m. at a home in the 8600 block of East Scott during a house party.

Kennedy said when officers were dispatched to the area they contacted three victims, ages 26, 27 and 29.  Randle apparently got into an argument, and the homeowner asked him to leave.

“The victims stated the suspect was a 24-year-old male, struck them with them with his vehicle. After the victims went back inside the residence, the suspect forced entry into the house,” said Kennedy.

Randle came back a short time later and broke in by damaging the door, but by that time, police were already there. He was taken into custody on suspicion of aggravated battery and possession of drugs. Officers say he had marijuana on him.

The three victims sustained minor injuries, but Kennedy says they refused medical services.

Randle’s bond has been set at $100,000.  His case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.


Randle has had a string of run-ins with the law, beginning with a 2014 shoplifting arrest. He was also charged in neighboring Sumner County in a November disturbance at the casino. Earlier this month, he was arrested in Irving, Texas for speeding.

In November 2015, Randle was arrested at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane on suspicion of criminal threat, assault on a law officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, and interference with law enforcement.

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.

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. The Cowboys released him last fall.
