Dallas Cowboys Player Allegedly Stole $124 Worth of Items


NFL players are known to make big money, drive fast cars, wear fancy clothes and so on -- so to hear an athlete's been arrested on suspicion of shoplifting is unusual.

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested on a charge of theft Monday evening at a Dillard's store in Frisco, Texas.

Police say Randle stole a two-pack of black Polo underwear, which costs $39.50, and an almost-full tester bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne worth $84. Which adds up to a whopping $123.50.

According to the Frisco Police Department, Randle was caught by the store's loss prevention staff. He was later charged with theft of $50 to $500, which is a Class B misdemeanor, and was released on bail a few hours later.

Judging by his earnings, Randle probably isn't hard up for money.

The former Oklahoma State standout signed a four-year, $2.3 million contract last year. That deal included a nearly $190,000 signing bonus and a base salary of $495,000 for 2014.

Just last week, Randle talked to a Dallas/Forth Worth radio station about his expensive footwear. TMZ obtained the audio from that radio interview.

Randle stated on the show, "I've got a couple of $1,000 pairs of shoes." Mac Engel for 105.3 FM was surprised, asking, "Couple $1,000 pairs of shoes? Dress shoes?"

Randle replied, "Nah, just worn-out Gucci shoes."

It sounds like he might have to purchase fewer pairs of shoes so he can cover the cost of fines from the Cowboys.

Amy Robach said via ABC: "He could now face up to $30,000 in fines from the team."

According to ESPN, though, the team will not suspend him. The Cowboys face off against the division rival New York Giants this Sunday.
