911 call released in Joseph Randle's case
Tuesday February 10th, 2015

Police released three separate 911 calls made after an incident at a Wichita, Kan., hotel last week involving Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle.

Authorities released the recordings after an open records request was made by The Wichita Eagle.

In one call, which lasted four minutes, Randle's former girlfriend tells a 911 dispatcher that Randle pointed a gun in front of her, broke a car window and threw away "a lot of weed" after police were called to the scene.

When police arrived, they found no gun but found one gram of marijuana in Randle's hotel room. A charge of unlawful possession of a controlled substance against Randle was later dropped, but a domestic violence investigation remains open to determine what happened in the hotel room.

A different woman called 911 and cursed at the dispatchers before hanging up.

Randle's ex-girlfriend then again called 911 urging dispatchers not to call the police.

"You guys don't have to worry about it," she told the dispatcher. "We just talked it out. It's fine. Everything is fine. We just talked to him, and he's fine now. Please don't come."

Randle’s attorney, Gary Ayers, said that Randle "regrets" being involved in an incident where the police were called.

His former girlfriend obtained a protective order Wednesday against Randle, and it remains in effect until a hearing scheduled for later this month.

Last October, Randle was arrested and fined for shoplifting underwear and cologne from a Dallas-area mall.

Randle, who grew up in Wichita and played college football at Oklahoma State, just completed his second season with the Cowboys. He gained 343 rushing yards and scored three touchdowns in 2014.
