IRVING, TX – Dallas Cowboys backup running back Joseph Randle’s Monday night arrest for shoplifting will cost him a significant fine in the range of $29,117, the amount the second-year back earns per week on his scheduled $495,000 base salary this season.

Randle was charged with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500, according to Frisco, Texas police for shop lifting a tester bottle of cologne and a two-pack of underwear at nearby a suburban mall.

A fifth-round pick in 2013, Randle met Tuesday with executive vice president Stephen Jones and coach Jason Garrett when Jones told USA TODAY Sports “significant discipline” was imposed on Randle, who rushed for a season-high 52 yards on five carries in Sunday’s 30-23 win against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

Jones said that significant discipline would not include a suspension.

“It’ll be a major fine — game-check range, and he’ll do some other things that go with it: community service and things like that we’ll want him to do – significant discipline,” Jones said during a Wednesday sit-down with USA TODAY Sports. “Unfortunately, that’s why he fell a little bit in the draft, just a little bit of the off-the-field stuff.

“He doesn’t necessarily make the best decisions. And he made a bad one there. He understands.”
