Football News

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle made headlines earlier this week after police were called to a hotel to deal with an alleged domestic incident.

The back up RB was then arrested on marijuana charges - despite what his agent claimed. Those charges have now been dropped but today fresh allegations surfaced concerning the altercation.

New allegations

Dalia Jacobs, the woman who called the police in the first place (and the woman who shares a child with Randle) alleges that the Cowboys player waived a gun at her as well as breaking the window of her car with his fist.


Jacobs has since filed a protection from abuse order - adding that Randle had stopped paying child support payments - and described her side of events to KWCH in Wichita, Kan.:

"I just couldn't imagine seeing my son get shot by his own father," she explained.

"Joseph puts his gun up. He walks back to the car, he looks in it, and then he just punches it with his fist...Glass splatters everywhere. There's glass in my son's hair. It hit him and that's when he starts crying."

She added that Randle waived the gun in the direction of his family when she took the child and attempted to leave the hotel.

Ongoing case

Police officers did not find a gun at the scene but Jacobs claims that this is because one of Randle's friends drove of with the weapon in his vehicle before authorities arrived.

As mentioned the marijuana charges have now been dropped but Wichita Police confirmed that the domestic incident investigation is ongoing.

Randle troubles

Having been arrested for stealing underwear and cologne mid-way through last season, Joseph Randle recovered to perform an able job as MeMarco Murray's back up for the Dallas Cowboys.

With Murray's future in Dallas uncertain due to pending free agency many had seen Randle as the logical successor to the covetedCowboys' RB spot.

Now though these latest allegations throw that situation into doubt and it remains to be seen how the franchise themselves react.

What do you think Cowboys fans? Has Randle run out of chances. Do you want him to replace DeMarco Murray should the star RB leave this offseason? Let us know in the comments section below...
