Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Found Guilty In Battery Case

4/21/2017 9:41 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been found guilty of battery after allegedly running people over with his car last year ... but the court session was very bizarre. 

Randle was in court in Wichita, Kansas to face multiple charges for the incident -- in which prosecutors say he got violent during a beer pong game at a house party in Feb. 2016.

Moments ago, the 25-year-old was found guilty of aggravated battery, criminal threats, aggravated burglary and possession of marijuana. 

But when the judge asked Randle if he had any questions about the verdict, he replied, "I don't understand what just happened."

Randle then asked if he had been charged with anything today in a confusing exchange with the judge ... this according to KWCH's Akeam Ashford.

The lawyers in the case are now speaking with the judge.

Randle has exhibited bizarre behavior for years -- he was arrested 6 times in 17 months including an incident in which he stole underwear and cologne from a department store while he was still playing for the Cowboys.

Since then, he was arrested at a casino, busted at his ex-girlfriend's home, and allegedly ripped a TV off the wall in jail.

Tony Romo Quits Football ... Bring On The Booth!!

Breaking News

Tony Romo's QB days are over ... at least for now ... he is reportedly retiring from the NFL to pursue a career in broadcasting.

Romo lost his job as the Dallas Cowboys starting QB last season to Dak Prescott -- who seized the opportunity when Romo went down with an injury in the preseason.

There have been rumors that Romo would sign with another team for the 2017 season but that just ain't happening -- at least right now.

No word on which network Romo will begin his broadcasting career with -- but we're guessing if an NFL team comes calling for a QB he'll have the option to sign with a team.

Good luck.

Michael Irvin Under Investigation for Sexual Assault He Says She's Lying

3/29/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Irvin is being investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a Ft. Lauderdale hotel ... something he vigorously denies.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports, a 27-year-old Florida woman filed a police report, claiming she and the NFL Hall of Famer were out at a bar in the early hours of March 21 when they went back to the W hotel, where Michael was staying.

The woman says they were in Michael's room when she began to feel sick. She says the last thing she remembers is fighting him off. She says when she woke up he was about to check out, leaving her behind. She took an Uber home and called 911 at 7:30 AM.

She told cops she feared she was drugged and raped. She was advised to go to a medical lab for a swab and a blood test, which she did.

She says she also texted Michael, asking him if they had sex. She says he responded that he wouldn't do anything to hurt her.

Our sources say Michael, now an analyst at NFL Network, tells a very different story. He says he was out at a bar with a group of people, including the woman, until around 4:30 AM March 21, when he returned to his hotel and she followed. Michael says he had an early flight, was in the room for only 15 minutes and had no sexual contact with the woman. He also says another male was present.

He says the woman -- a cosmetologist -- texted him a day later saying, "Come for a facial when you get back to Ft. Lauderdale."

Irvin's lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ Sports, "Michael was in Ft. Lauderdale visiting his nieces and nephews at a track meet. He was also visiting his 90-year-old aunt and attending her birthday party. He was blindsided by news of these allegations."  

Friedman adds, "The allegations are completely false. In the few hours since we've learned about them we've already discovered many red flags about this young woman's background and the allegations she made against Michael. Even the complaint that she made specifically says she does not recall the events that took place. She was very drunk that night. Nothing happened and there was no assault."

Police are investigating.

Greg Hardy Coke Arrest Video 'He's a Cowboys Player, Don't Stir Anything Up'

3/22/2017 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the Greg Hardy cocaine arrest video which shows cops warning each other that he's a big, strong, Dallas Cowboys player ... so "we have to not stir anything up."

Hardy was arrested in Dallas back in September after officers found cocaine in his wallet during a routine traffic stop.

In the video, Hardy is with a female passenger and is extremely polite to the officers. The officers are also acting carefully. One whispers to another, "He's very big and fit."

FYI, Hardy is 6'4", 280.

When the cops find a purple baggy filled with coke in Hardy's wallet (which was in his car), his explanation is bizarre.

"I just got a job, I play football. I was at a party. I got drunk. Literally last night. I was at a mixer with NFL guys trying to do an interview. Like I said, I don’t know what happened between me and him, he could’ve slipped stuff in my pocket. Some people offered me some stuff. I literally don’t know what is in that. Whatever it is. I haven’t even seen it. I thought that I had nothing in the car."

He added, "I just came from a date. I was just trying to get a date in before I go and try to get a job to play ball."

So, two things ...

1) Hardy is convinced someone connected to the NFL planted drugs on him.

2) At the time, Hardy (a free agent) was convinced he was going to sign with a new team. That never came to fruition. He didn't play in 2016.

As for the arrest, Hardy eventually struck a plea deal and got 2 years probation.

Ezekiel Elliott Yacht Party Searched By Coast Guard

3/19/2017 1:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:15 PM PT -- Elliott's attorney tells TMZ Sports the Coast Guard boarded the yacht to make sure there were enough life jackets onboard. He says no citations were issued, and the party continued.

Ezekiel Elliott had his good time temporarily ruined again this week ... only now it was by the U.S. Coast Guard during a rager yacht party in Miami. 

Ezekiel was partying with friends and a gaggle of chicks Saturday on a yacht called No Rules II, when a Coast Guard cruiser pulled up. We're told the yacht had docked minutes before.

Eyewitnesses tell us 2 guards boarded the yacht and conducted a 20-minute search on-board. We're told once the search was complete, the guards went back to their vessel and took off. 

Unclear what they were looking for, or why they approached Ezekiel and co. A rep for the Coast Guard tells us they're checking ... but he believes it was probably a safety check to make sure the boat and the guests were in compliance with maritime safety protocol.

Also important to note ... the yacht did not belong to Ezekiel. Sources tell us it belongs to a guy who rents 'em out to celebs and other rich folks. Ezekiel was just there for the ride.

Either way, it's been a bad week for the star NFL player. You'll recall ... he caught a lot of heat for forcefully exposing a woman's breast during a St. Paddy's parade. Now this.  

Ex-Cowboys Linebacker Zeke's Not a Completely Terrible Person

3/16/2017 1:33 PM PDT
Breaking News

Sounds like former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bobby Carpenter is conflicted on how he feels about Ezekiel Elliott as a person. 

On one hand, Carpenter says he absolutely condemns the boob-grabbing stunt ... and on the other, he's personally witnessed Zeke acting like a good dude. 

Here's Bobby's statement:

"I don't endorse Zeke's behavior of grabbing women and pulling their shirts down. It's unprofessional at best and illegal at its worst."

"However on the Buckeye Cruise he got mobbed for pictures and didn't take everyone during his leisure time, but during the 4 hour autograph signing he was polite and engaging with nearly 800 people."

"I know it to be true because I was at the table beside of him. He smiled and kissed babies."

Our takeaway, Carpenter wants to defend Zeke ... but he knows it's dicey. 

Meanwhile, Chris Spielman could not have been more clear ... he's sick and tired of Elliott's stupid antics.
