Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was recently arrested for stealing cologne and underwear from a Texas department store.
He was booked into the Frisco City Jail, and apparently, he made a joke of the whole thing.
Randle tried to approach an officer for something to lighten the mood, and asked “If I give you $100, can you give me a massage?”
He also made it a point to call and ask his agent if he’d be able to get out in time to make it to practice the following day. And he must have been worried about his image, because he also asked “Hey, is this going to be on the news? You think?”
Yeah, it’s probably going to make the news.
Since this was a dumb thing to do in the first place, being that he’s a football player and can certainly afford underwear and cologne, Randle probably could’ve handled this a bit better by holding himself accountable and moving on. The (6-2) Cowboys are playing great ball right now, and they don’t need distractions like off-the-field drama.
