A court filing says a refused phone call precipitated former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle's threatening to kill a deputy while jailed on other charges in Kansas.
Randle was charged last month in Sedgwick County with one count of criminal threat.
The Wichita Eagle reports that an arrest affidavit released Monday alleges Randle was upset that he had been refused a phone call May 14 and repeatedly told the deputy he would kill him when he gets released.
Randle, 24, has had a string of run-ins with the law.
He's also been charged in Kansas with a casino disturbance and with backing his car into three people.
A message left Monday with Randle's public defender, James Crawford, was not immediately returned.
The Cowboys released Randle last year.
