Original Story: 

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been arrested for the fifth time in eighteen months, detained in Kansas early Sunday morning on three counts of aggravated battery, one count of drug possession and one count of criminal damage.

The story was originally broken by TMZ Sports. More news surrounding Randle's arrest inside the Chat Sports iPhone and Android apps.

Randle was arrested for the first time in this 18-month span for stealing cologne and underwear back in October 2014. A few months later, the 24-year-old was booked on drug charges after police responded to a domestic violence call.

In November, Randle was brought in on charges after allegedly attempting to fight a security guard at a casino. The last in a long line of police run-ins before this morning's arrest came three weeks ago when he was arrested in Texas on an outstanding traffic warrant after going to an ex-girlfriend’s home and residents called the police.

Randle rushed for 315 yards and four touchdowns, starting the first six games of the season for the Cowboys last year. However, the NFL eventually suspended him for his transgressions and he was ultimately cut by Dallas. 

With a continuance of his NFL career unlikely at this juncture, attention now turns to Randle's personal life and whether or not he can break his current legal system cycle.
