McKINNEY, Texas — Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, a Wichita native, has been put on six months of probation for stealing $123 worth of cologne and underwear from a Texas mall.

Collin County jail records Friday show Randle pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft in a plea deal over his Oct. 13 arrest.

A judge in McKinney put Randle on 180 days of deferred adjudication probation. Tuesday's plea agreement means the formal finding of guilt will be dismissed if Randle successfully completes probation. He also paid $706 in court-related costs.

Prosecutors say the items were stolen from a department store at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco. Randle was stopped by a security guard.

The arrest came a day after Randle had a 38-yard run and a key tackle in a 30-23 victory over Seattle.

Randle graduated from Wichita Southeast before playing collegiately at Oklahoma State.

In May, Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said a lack of corroborating evidence resulted in no charges being filed against Randle in connection with an incident earlier this year at a downtown Wichita hotel.
