Dallas Cowboys RB arrested for shoplifting cologne and underwear


A Dallas Cowboys running back was arrested Monday for shoplifting.

Running back Joseph Randle was caught stealing cologne and underwear from a Dillards department store at a suburban Dallas shopping mall, police told ESPN.

He was caught on surveillance cameras trying to five-finger discount the items despite making a base salary of $495,000 this season as the backup to superstar DeMarco Murray.

Security guards at the Stonebriar Centre Mall approached Randle and kept him in the store until Frisco police arrived.

The fifth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Player Draft was charged with Class B misdemeanor theft of items valued at $50 to $100, authorities said.

He was released from jail at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, records showed.

Randle was snagged by the fuzz only one day after a five-carry, 52 yard performance Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Cowboys have not spoken publicly about the charge.

Randle will likely be in uniform this Sunday against the division rival New York Giants.
