Cowboys dump WR Whitehead after link to shoplifting arrest

Adjust Comment Print

An arrest warrant reportedly has been issued for Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead after he failed to appear for arraignment in connection with a shoplifting charge.

Football star Lucky, aka Rodney Darnell Whitehead, was charged with shoplifting under $200 worth of goods after cops were called to the WAWA by an employee who said a man ran out of the store without paying. When he did not show up for his court date, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Whitehead's dog Blitz (pictured with his Instagram post about the incident) was allegedly stolen and ransomed just last week.

Whitehead was able to make team in part his rookie year because of his special teams capabilities as the Cowboys were trying to replace return specialist Dwayne Harris. The dog was eventually returned to Whitehead.

Whitehead's agent, though, claims that his client was not arrested and that it was a case of mistaken identity.

The streak of Dallas Cowboys players running into trouble with the law has exceeded any reasonable explanation. He struggled to hold on to the football, though, fumbling three times and losing two in just 10 rushes and three receptions a year ago.

But Jones said this was more about Whitehead and his continued pattern of mistakes.

Whitehead failed to notify the team about his incident. He has another court hearing scheduled for August 10. The team also signed Greg Hardy in 2015 after Hardy was convicted of domestic violence. Early Monday, it surfaced that Whitehead had been arrested in Prince William County, VA.
