Joseph Randle charged with felony for alleged threat

Tuesday June 21st, 2016

Former Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been charged with one felony count of making a criminal threat, reports The Wichita Eagle.

Randle allegedly made the threat in May while in jail on two other felony charges. In February, Randle was arrested and charged after allegedly hitting three people with his car after a party. He was also charged with interfering with law enforcement in relation to his warrant on the car incident. 

The alleged threat marks the seventh criminal incident for Randle in the last 20 months. 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 last November.
