FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was quite vocal as police booked him into the Frisco City Jail after his arrest for stealing cologne and underwear more than two weeks ago. He cracked jokes and didn’t seem to take officers seriously.
“If I give you $100, can you give me a massage?” Randle asks an officer.
Behind-the-scenes video shows Randle, dressed in a white sleeveless shirt, talking to his agent on the phone.
“I got jammed up. I need a… I need an attorney to get me a writ bond so I can make it to practice tomorrow,” Randle says.
Clearly worried about making it to the team’s practice the next day, Randle expresses concern about whether his arrest for shoplifting from the Dillard’s department store at the Stonebriar Centre Mall will get out to the public.
“Hey, is this going to be on the news, you think?” he asks.
