Joseph Randle arrested for shoplifting
The Cowboys won their fifth game on Sunday afternoon and one of their players allegedly tried to celebrate on Monday night by taking a five-finger discount on a bottle of cologne and some underwear.
Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that running back Joseph Randle was arrested in Frisco, Texas for taking the items without bothering to pay the store anything for the privilege. Per Hill, Randle was caught in the act by video cameras and police were notified.
A spokesman for the Frisco police department confirmed that Randle was arrested on a Class B misdemeanor charge of a theft between $50-$500. He was booked at the city jail and released after posting bond.
Randle ran five times for 52 yards in last Sunday’s victory in Seattle. There’s no word yet on how or if the arrest will impact Randle’s status on the team.
