TMZ- More troubling behavior from ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle -- who was charged with a crime after allegedly ripping a TV off the wall in jail ... because he wanted to watch a certain show.
TMZ Sports has obtained court docs which show Randle was charged with criminal damage to property for the July 28 incident at the Sedgwick County Jail.
Officials say witnesses snitched on Randle -- most likely because he broke the whole TV which was damaged beyond repair. Everyone knows you don't mess with inmates' TV privileges!
You know who Joseph Randle reminds me of? The minor league baseball player in his mid-30's who has never even sniffed playing in the Majors and just keeps bouncing around on bus rides from suburb to suburb because he has no idea what else to do with his life if he wasn't sitting in a poorly maintained dugout in front of 1,172 fans with a fat dip in his lower lip. Much like that poor, hypothetical bastard that can't give up their dream, Joseph Randle just refuses to admit to himself that he doesn't have what it takes to make it in the profession of his choice.
In a way, I respect it. Dude is just trying to get rich or die trying, and the fact that he's far closer to the latter hasn't made him even begin to reconsider stealing everything along his career path. The professional crook that can't get make it out of a Dillard's with a package of discount underwear and a new scent without getting pinched? The bandit that's only considered sticky because he gets himself stuck in precarious situations? Not only trying to rob a flat screen television from a goddamn prison, but breaking it n the process? Joseph Randle might be the single worst burglar of all time, but his dedication to the craft is unparalleled. He's like the kid that shows up to open hockey every single day, and NEVER gets any better whatsoever. He's basically just banging his head against a brick wall because he knows nothing other than his passion for something he absolutely sucks at.
I can't help but admire that level of determination. Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do Joseph...even if it has landed him behind bars and drawn the ire of every single one of your fellow inmates.
