WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been charged with threatening a deputy while jailed on other charges in Kansas.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/28TprNI ) reports that Randle is charged in Sedgwick County with one count of criminal threat. He said he plans to hire a lawyer to represent him during a first appearance Tuesday via a video link from the jail.
Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Lin Dehning said in an email that Randle is accused of threatening a deputy who was ''enforcing the rules'' last month at the jail. No other details were immediately provided.
Randle has had a string of run-ins with the law. He's also been charged in Kansas with a casino disturbance and with backing his car into three people. The Cowboys released Randle last year.
