Randle, a Wichita native, was taken into custody at Sedgwick County Jail around 3:45 a.m. on Friday.

The 26-year-old has spent most of the past two years in jail but was released in June after receiving five years’ probation related to an altercation at a house party in 2016.

Randle also is due for sentencing in another felony case on Oct. 9, according to The Wichita Eagle.

The Cowboys took Randle in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He opened the 2015 as the starter, but injuries slowed him down and a four-game NFL suspension led to the Cowboys cutting him after six games.

For his career, Randle has 181 carries for 822 yards and nine touchdowns.
