Randle has been charged in Sedgwick County (Kansas) with one count of criminal threat for allegedly threatening a jail deputy last month, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Per ESPN.com, Randle is due back in court on July 6. The running back, who was released by the Cowboys this past November, also has preliminary hearings in two pending felony cases (also in Sedgwick County) on July 26.

Following another arrest on Sunday morning, Randle was charged with aggravated battery, drug possession, and criminal damage to property, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Randle cannot avoid breaking the law, as the arrest marks his third since he was released by the Cowboys on Nov. 3, and fifth overall since October of 2014. Booked into Sedgwick County jail in Wichita, Kan. at 8 AM on Sunday, his bail has been set at a lofty $100,000, which could be the final straw in his NFL pursuits. In addition to any legal ramifications, Randle is subject to further suspension for repeated violations of the league's personal conduct policy.

Randle was arrested on a warrant for speeding on Monday morning, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Enduring his fourth arrest since October of 2014, Randle's most recent brush with the law didn't have any of the negative connotations associated with the first three. Apparently, he arrived at an ex-girlfriend's residence in Irving, TX early Monday morning searching for a place to sleep on his way to Kansas. However, he wasn't welcome, and an ensuing phone call to the police resulted in their arrival on the scene, where the warrant was discovered for speeding in a school zone. There's been no indication that he's attempting a return to the NFL, but his off-the-field behavior is certainly enough to keep teams from checking in on the 24-year-old running back.

Randle was arrested outside a Kansas casino on Tuesday night on multiple charges, including felony criminal threats, battery, and misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer, TMZ Sports reports.
Randle was reportedly asked to leave the casino for being overly intoxicated, and assaulted a security guard as he exited the building. The 23-year-old has seemingly been allergic to positive press over the last two years, and this latest brush with the law won't help his cause as he looks for another opportunity in the NFL. If Randle ends up signing anywhere in the offseason, he'd have to serve a four-game suspension stemming from his violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy, a ban that was handed down by the league shortly after he was released by the Cowboys earlier in November.

Randle has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Randle has not joined a team since being released by the Cowboys last week, but he will be forced to sit out four games if and when he does sign a new contract. Given the personal issues he is dealing with and the pending suspension, Randle will not be making a fantasy impact anytime soon.

Randle (back/personal) was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Between injuries, personal issues and a possible looming suspension, Randle already seemed unlikely to play again in 2015. He had the first shot to replace DeMarco Murray in the Dallas backfield, but Randle ultimately managed just 76 carries for 315 yards (4.1 YPC) and four touchdowns in six games behind a top-notch offensive line. Darren McFadden handled most of the workload the past two games and will likely continue to do so in Week 9 against the Eagles, with Christine Michael and Rod Smith providing depth. Randle is unlikely to draw interest from another team this season.

Randle (personal/back) will not be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Randle is uncertain to return before the end of the season, with injuries, a personal issue and a possible suspension all hanging over his head. At the very least, he'll miss Sunday's divisional matchup, leaving Darren McFadden as the clear lead back against a tough Eagles defense.

Randle (strained oblique) -- who reportedly could be facing a one or two-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy -- is excused from the team and is thus slated to be inactive for the Cowboys' game against the Seahawks on Sunday, as he deals with what is described as a personal issue, NFL.com reports.
While Randle's status for this Sunday has been clarified, the running back's availability beyond Week 8 remains unclear. As a result, this weekend -- and quite possibly beyond -- the Cowboys are in line to roll with a ground game headed by Darren McFadden, with Christine Michael and Rod Smith also on hand to see complementary/reserve action in the team's backfield.

Randle (back) is still addressing some personal issues and has not returned to the Cowboys' practice facility as of Friday morning, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Randle is still away from the team, so he will sit out practice Friday for the third day in a row. The Cowboys will not reveal his status for Sunday's game until later Friday, but head coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that he does not expect Randle to play in Week 8, and another missed practice certainly does not help Randle's chances.

Head coach Jason Garrett relayed Thursday that the Cowboys don't expect to have Randle (oblique) suit up Sunday against the Seahawks, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Randle is in danger of sitting out "because of his injury" rather than Thursday morning's development that he's facing potential discipline for a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy. His last few days have been a whirlwind, to say the least, as teammate Darren McFadden used Randle's injury to rumble 29 times for 152 yards Sunday at the Giants, pushing the former Raider to the top of waiver-wire targets for the week. Garrett then decided to make the change to McFadden as the Cowboys' lead back Wednesday, which pushed Randle to leave the team's facilities. According to David Helman of the Cowboys' official site, Randle remains away from the team Thursday due to a "personal issue," meaning this strange tale has yet to play itself out.
