Dallas Cowboys reserve running back Joseph Randle has yet to score a touchdown in the 2014 NFL season on just 16 carries, and apparently that struggle has affected his common sense.
The 22-year-old second year player was just popped for shoplifting underwear and cologne from Dillard’s in Stonebriar Centre Mall in Frisco, Texas.
The struggle report via ESPN:
Randle was charged with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500, according to Frisco, Texas, police. He was released on writ bond at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday.
The arrest report states that store security officers, watching via the closed-circuit surveillance system, observed Randle purchase an item at the perfume counter before walking to the underwear section and concealing merchandise in his Dillard’s bag. He then exited the store before being stopped by security in the parking lot.
The store security officers recovered from Randle a two-pack of black Polo underwear valued at $39.50 and an almost full “tester” bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne valued at $84.
After being placed in the back of a police car, Randle told Frisco police officer Jason Kimbrough that he would have just kept walking to his car when confronted by security officer Raymond Wymer — the “old guy,” Randle called him — if he had known he would be arrested, according to the arrest report.
For the record, the former fifth-round draft pick makes $495,000 a year. Subtract the $123.50 and that is still $494,876.50. Yeah, the math isn’t adding up.
