Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been found guilty of aggravated battery, aggravated burglary, criminal threat and marijuana possession after striking three people with his car as he left a house warming party in Kansas.
KAKE-TV reports that the jury couldn’t reach a verdict Friday on two charges of aggravated battery and a count of criminal damage to property. A mistrial was declared on those counts. Judge Kevin O’Conner put those back on the May 1 docket.
Randle is accused of kicking in the door at a home in Wichita in 2016, then hitting three people with his car as he fled what he called a hostile situation.
Randle testified, against the advice of his attorney, about what happened when he showed up at the party in south Wichita in 2016. He said he went to the party for a girl and called the situation hostile and testified if he had a gun he would have pulled it out in self defense. Other witnesses described Randle as becoming aggressive following a game of beer pong.
Randle’s also charged with running from police officers trying to serve him with a warrant following the attack. He faces thirty months in prison on the aggravated burglary charge.
