Former Oklahoma Sate 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 case is Randle’s third locally with felony charges. It’s the latest in a string of legal woes faced by the former NFL player and Oklahoma State standout.
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. Also, Randle Randle was arrested in Kansas around 3:00 a.m. on February 2015 by Wichita Police for unlawful possession of marijuana. Other incidents included February 2016, when Randle was arrested at a home in Irving, Texas for an outstanding warrant for speeding. Later that same month, he was arrested in Wichita, Kansas for aggravated battery, possession of drugs and criminal damage to property.
Randle racked up over 3,000 yards on the ground during his time in Stillwater, along with 40 touchdowns, before being taken in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. Then, it was actually just last offseason when Randle was named the starting running back in place the departed DeMarco Murray.
But, even Jerry Jones decided enough was enough of Randle’s legal troubles and the Cowboys waived the running back on November 3rd.
Forgot the football, here’s to hoping Randle is able to get his life back together.
