Ex-Cowboys Running Back In Court For Alleged Rape Yells ‘She Never Said No’
Former NFL running back Joseph Randle had an outburst in court on Tuesday during a preliminary hearing after he was arrested for rape.
Randle is currently facing 11 different charges, including rape, aggravated criminal sodomy, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated battery. During the hearing, Randle reportedly yelled at the judge that the woman accusing him “never said no.”
“She didn’t tell me. She never said nothing. She never said no. So how am I supposed to know?” Randle said. (RELATED: Joseph Randle Arrest Dashcam Footage: ‘This Is The End Of My Career’)

The hearing took place in Wichita Kansas, where Randle was arrested last year. His accuser testified that a drunken Randle punched her in the face and raped her, while one of the arresting police officers testified that Randle smelled like alcohol when he was arrested. Randle did not enter a plea at Tuesday’s hearing, but has denied all of the allegations.
Randle is a Wichita native and played college football at Oklahoma State, where he was an All-Big 12 running back, before being drafted by the Cowboys in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. (RELATED: Jerry Jones Talks Head Coaching Situation For The Dallas Cowboys)
Randle posted solid production in Dallas before a variety of legal troubles ended his short NFL career in 2015.
Randle was ruled competent to stand trial by a judge in December after lawyers argued that he should be ruled incompetent.
