Former Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is back in jail after an arrest early Sunday morning in Sedgwick County, Kansas, for failure to appear in court, according to various reports. He is being held on $150,000 bond. Randle was released from jail last Thursday after spending nine days behind bars because he said he couldn't afford the $100,000 bail.

The 24-year-old was hit with seven charges during his court appearance, including four counts of aggravated battery and one count of marijuana possession. He eventually came up with the money but now he's back in police custody.

A Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy couldn't confirm to KAKE if Randle's latest arrest is connected to the previous one.

Randle's legal troubles date back to October 2014 when he was charged with shoplifting after stealing underwear from a Dallas mall. Randle was also arrested in February 2015, November 2015 and earlier this month.

The Cowboys cut Randle in November and a short time later he was suspended for four games by the NFL.

This latest arrest is Randle's sixth in the last 17 months.
