WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — NFL investigators were in Wichita on the day a hearing had been scheduled on a protection from abuse order sought against Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle.

Thursday's civil hearing on the protection order was delayed until March 12.

Wichita Police Lt. James Espinoza says he talked with NFL investigators, who got public information.

The attorney representing Randle's former girlfriend says the NFL has never contacted him or his client.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office plans to meet with police investigators Friday to consider whether to file criminal charges.

Dalia Jacobs, the mother of Randle's son, told police he brandished a gun and broke a car window during a Feb. 3 altercation at a Wichita hotel. His attorney has said Randle did not threaten the woman or show a gun.
