Joseph Randle, the former Dallas Cowboys running back, was arrested outside a Kansas casino on Tuesday night for assaulting a cop, according to a TMZ Sports report.
According to the report, Randle was asked to leave the casino for being too drunk, but spat on the floor and assaulted a casino-deployed security officer before exiting. Shortly thereafter, Randle was arrested at approximately 10:40 p.m outside the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, KS.
Randle, 23, was taken into custody and shifted to a nearby jail after being booked on a long list of charges, including suspicion of criminal threat, assault of a law enforcement officer, battery, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and interference with a law enforcement officer.
After being held on a $25,000 bail, Randle has since been released.
Fred Waller, an enforcement agent with the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission, said the scuffle ensued after Randle started arguing with security officers. “He was belligerent and causing some problems on the casino floor. The whys, I don’t know,” said Waller.
The Casino refused to release a statement, stating that it was a law enforcement issue.
Randle, who began the season as the Cowboys’ starting running back, was released earlier this month as the team wanted him “to deal with personal issues.” Barely a week after his release from Dallas, Randle was suspended four games by the NFL under the league’s personal conduct policy.
Randle suffers from a history of legal issues. The former Oklahoma State standout is currently on unsupervised probation in Texas for stealing underwear and cologne from a department store.
