Dallas Cowboys Running Back Joseph Randle has been charged misdemeanor class B theft of $50 to $500 for attempting to steal a pair of underwear and cologne from a suburban Mall late on Monday night, according to Frisco police, Texas.

Randle was caught on CCTV purchasing an item at the perfume counter, before walking to the underwear section of the store and placing an item in his bag.

The 22-year-old was then stopped in the parking lot by security, who found a pack of black polo underwear valued at $39.50 and an almost full sample bottle of Gucci Guilty black cologne valued at $84 in his bag, before placing him in he back of a police car.

Randle is believe to have told Frisco police officer Jason Kimbrough that he would have kept on walking to his car if he had known he would have been arrested by Raymond Wymer, or 'the old guy', as Randle labelled the security officer.

A source close to the Dallas Cowboys has said that the club does intend to fine the player for his actions, but are not looking to suspend Randle. The amount of the fine is yet to be determined.

Joseph Randle was a fifth round pick in 2013 and is expected to earn close to $500,000 this season. The reserve running back has rushed for 113 yards this season, including a season 52 yard rush on five carries in the weekend shock victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
