WICHITA, Kan. (AP/KAKE) -

Joseph Randle faces several charges, including aggravated battery, for incidents at a house warming party in February 2016.

The former Dallas Cowboys running back and Wichita native is accused of running over three people with his car outside that party.

In Tuesday's opening arguments, prosecutors asked the jury to find him guilty of using the car as a deadly weapon.

The first person to take the stand, Loy Alexander, says Randle turned aggressive after a game a beer pong. Alexander added that Randle was asked multiple times to leave the party. When he finally did  leave, Alexander followed him to the car. Randle accelerated toward him twice.

Others at the party testified that Randle then kicked open the door and came back to the party.

The trial is expected to continue the rest of the week.
