Cowboys’ Randle caught shoplifting
Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle won’t be suspended after his arrest on a shoplifting charge.
Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett said on Wednesday that Randle will be fined “significantly’’ but will play in the NFL on Sunday against the New York Giants.
Randle was charged with misdemeanor theft of between $50 and $500 after he was accused of taking $123 worth of cologne and underwear from a department store at a suburban Dallas mall on Monday. He was detained by store security, taken to jail, and posted bond early Tuesday.
According to an arrest report, Randle was caught on video placing items later identified as a “tester’’ bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne and a two-pack of Polo underwear into a Dillard’s bag after making a purchase at the store at Stonebriar Centre near Dallas.
Randle, 22, was stopped by a security guard in the parking lot and later told a police officer that when he saw the “old guy,’’ referring to the security guard, he thought to himself, “All right, y’all got me.’’ AP
