Former NFL Running Back Joseph Randle Allegedly Threatened To Kill A Cop For Being Denied A Phone Call

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is, once again, in big time trouble after he allegedly threatened to kill a deputy officer from the jail he’s currently locked up at in Kansas.

Per The Wichita Eagle, here’s what occurred during the incident:

Randle, according to the document, was upset that he had been refused a phone call at 8:02 p.m. that day and told the deputy involved “‘I will kill you I swear on my life and everything that I have I will kill you when I get out.’” He allegedly repeated the threat several times.

The deputy “did feel threatened by what Inmate Randle stated,” states the document, which was written by a detective with the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office.

The deputy “was also threatened by the way Inmate Randle said the threats. The threat was made in a very aggressive manner by yelling them,” the detective wrote.

Randle, who’s in jail after a string of incidents that have included aggravated battery after losing a game of beer pong and assault at a casino, among others, has been arrested a bunch of times in the past 20 months, and remains in Sedgwick County Jail on a total of $50,000 in bonds.

The 24-year-old former running back was released from the Cowboys late last year, but he actually entered the season as the team’s, presumed, starting running back. Talk about a fall from grace.
