Joe Randle Gets Demotion, Faces Suspension and … Calls Police?



Joe Randle is facing a suspension from the NFL, according to ESPN. The discipline stems from a second arrest in his stint with the Cowboys which occurred this spring when Randle (allegedly) waved a gun around and cops found weed in his hotel room.

The charges were dropped, but the NFL doesn’t care.

Randle met with NFL investigators this summer and again within the past week, and the NFL determined that he violated the league’s personal conduct policy, which will carry consequences. In a best-case scenario, Randle will be fined. More likely, he’ll be suspended, possibly for multiple games …

The demotion also occurred this week. Randle left the Cowboys practice facility after losing his job to Darren McFadden (DMC!) Here’s the Dallas Morning News.

Multiple sources said the demotion hit Randle hard and he needed to get away from Valley Ranch on Wednesday to work through his disappointment.

So what did he do?

Randle placed a call to the Irving police department Wednesday afternoon at 12:35. Department spokesman James McClellan said the running back asked that police go to his home to perform a welfare check on his girlfriend, Avina Rodriguez. Randle told police he found her cell phone in his car and was concerned that someone had broken into his house.
