Sunday March 6th, 2016

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested in Kansas after failing to appear in court for a previous charge, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Bail has been set for $150,000 for this arrest.

Randle has now been arrested six times in the last 17 months. He was arrested twice in February, most recently being booked on three counts of aggravated battery, one count of drug possession and one count of criminal damage of property on Feb. 21.

His previous arrests range from shoplifting to an investigation for domestic violence in 2015, for which charges were never filed.

Randle entered the 2015 season as the starting running back for the Cowboys, but was released due to his issues with the law in November.

Randle has rushed for 822 yards on 181 carries since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State.
