Judge delays proceedings against ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle

WICHITA, Kan. -- A judge has agreed to halt court proceedings against former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle until he receives another mental evaluation.

The Wichita Eagle reports that defense attorney Steven Mank sought the delay Thursday. The prosecution didn't object.

The 24-year-old Randle was deemed competent in June to stand trial on charges that he hit people with his car during a housewarming party and dodged police trying to serve him with a warrant. He also is charged in two other cases.

A bench trial set for Thursday in one of the cases didn't happen because of Mank's request. The other three cases had been set for jury trials next week.

A report from the mental evaluation is expected to be completed within about two weeks.
