Former Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Threatened To Kill Deputy For Not Allowing Him To Use Phone


Former Cowboys RB Joseph Randle threatened to kill a detention deputy back in May after he wasn’t allowed to make a phone call.

‘I will kill you I swear on my life and everything that I have I will kill you when I get out,’” Randle told the officer several times, according to documents released on Monday, via

The documents mentions that deputy “did feel threatened by what Inmate Randle stated.” Beyond that, deputy “was also threatened by the way Inmate Randle said the threats. The threat was made in a very aggressive manner by yelling them.

According to the release, the deputy wouldn’t allow Randle to make a call because another deputy gave him an opportunity to do so earlier in the day.

Randle is facing another felony criminal threat charge for the incident.

TMZ reported last week that Randle was found mentally competent by a Kansas judge on Wednesday after the court reviewed a report from a Wichita mental health center and heard other arguments.

According to the report, the judge in this case still believes Randle needs some mental help, and has ordered him to be placed in a mental health facility if he’s eventually released on bond.

Randle will now stand trial for the assault case in which he allegedly tried to run people over with his car after a beer pong match. He was arrested for the incident and charged with multiple felonies, including aggravated battery and interfering with law enforcement.

Randle, 24, was in the third year of his four-year, $2.349 million rookie contract that included a $188,820 signing bonus when the Cowboys cut him several months ago.

Randle is currently a free agent and served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.

In 2015, Randle appeared in six games and ran for 313 yards on 76 carries (4.1 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 87 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
