Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested early Monday morning on a speeding charge in Texas, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Police say the 24-year-old was stopped near the home of his ex-girlfriend on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant.

The report said he stopped at the home at around 3 a.m. local time to sleep before driving to Kansas, where he is from, but was turned away by the residents who called police. Authorities later stopped him and the outstanding warrant was discovered.

Randle was taken into custody, and his bail was set at $359.

He was released by the Cowboys in early November, and has had a number of run-ins with the law recently, reports ESPN.

In late November, Randle was arrested and booked on suspicion of criminal threat, assault of a law enforcement officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and interference with a law enforcement officer after an altercation at a Kansas casino.

In the incident, Randle was asked to leave the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane after causing a disturbance on the casino floor. He did leave, but returned and started arguing with security officers, and a scuffle ensued. Several agents had to restrain him, and he was taken to the county jail.

Randle was suspended four games by the NFL under the league's personal conduct policy one week after he was released by the Cowboys
