Wichita Police Sergeant Joe Kennedy said the latest incident involving Randle occurred about 3 a.m. in the 8600 block of E. Scott.

Kennedy said when officers were dispatched to that address, they contacted three victims, ages 26, 27 and 29, who said Randle struck them with a vehicle.  Kennedy said the victims told police after they went inside a residence at the Scott St. location, Randle forced his way inside the residence.

When police arrived, Kennedy said they took Randle into custody on suspicion of aggravated battery.

The victims had minor injuries and refused medical services.

Randle has had a string of run-ins with the law, beginning with a 2014 shoplifting arrest. He’s also charged in neighboring Sumner County in a November disturbance at a casino. Earlier this month, he was arrested in Irving, Texas, after it was determined he was wanted for speeding.

In November 2015, Randle was arrested at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane on suspicion of criminal threat, assault on a law officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, and interference with law enforcement.

According to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department, Randle was asked to leave.  He was escorted to the cage to cash out when he apparently got into a scuffle with a casino security employee. He was arrested by a Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission Agent.  Officials believe Randle was drinking.

Randle played high school football at Southeast Wichita High School before moving on to Oklahoma State. He went on to play for the Cowboys.

In October 2014, Randle was arrested for shoplifting at Stonebriar Centre Mall in Dallas.

Randle’s bond has been set at $100,000.

The Cowboys released him last fall.
