Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been charged with four misdemeanors in connection with his arrest at the Kansas Star Casino late last month.
Randle, a Wichita Southeast product and former Oklahoma State player, appeared in a Wellington courtroom Thursday for his first appearance, according to Kerwin Spencer, Sumner County attorney.
At the appearance, Randle said he would hire his own attorney before his next appearance in court in January, Spencer said.
Randle was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, one count of criminal trespass and one count of resisting arrest, all misdemeanors.

The first disorderly conduct charge “was for being disorderly inside the casino,” and the second “was for being disorderly outside the casino,” Spencer said.
“He decided he wasn’t going to heed the instruction to leave,” and re-entered the casino, hence the criminal trespass charge, Spencer said.
Then, when officers were trying to handcuff Randle, he resisted arrest, Spencer said.
Randle was briefly held in the Sumner County Detention Center on suspicion of criminal threat, assault on a law enforcement officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and interference with a law enforcement officer.
He left the detention center on a $5,000 bond about 12 hours after being admitted.
Randle’s case is scheduled for a docket call in early January, Spencer said.
