Police: Joseph Randle arrested after hitting three people with car
Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle hit three people with a car and broke into a house before he was arrested and jailed on Monday, Wichita police said, according to the Associated Press.
After an argument broke out at a housewarming party, Randle was told to leave the residence, Police Lt. James Espinoza said. Randle hit two men and a woman as he was backing out of the driveway, though the three were not seriously injured, Espinoza said.
A short time later, Randle returned to the home and broke through the front door. When police arrived, they arrested Randle and found him to be in possession of marijuana.
Randle, who is currently a free agent after the Cowboys released him in November, was booked on three counts of aggravated battery, one count of drug possession and one count of criminal damage. His bond at Sedgwick County Jail was set at $100,000.
Randle, 24, had already been arrested once in February for speeding. His five total arrests have been for speeding, shoplifting, a domestic violence disturbance and a casino fight.
The Cowboys selected Randle in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft. He played in 35 games over three seasons in Dallas, rushing for 820 yards and nine touchdowns before his release.
