Cowboys release WR Lucky Whitehead after arrest

Report: Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Arrested For Shoplifting

On June 22, fringe Cowboys receiver Lucky Whitehead was arrested in the parking lot of a Woodbridge, Va. convenience store after a worker reported that he had shoplifted from the store.

Following his arrest, Whitehead was given a court date of July 6, and when he didn't show for the hearing, police in Virginia put out a warrant. On July 6th, he failed to appear before an arraignment, resulting in his second charge.

Whitehead made headlines last week when his dog, Blitz, was kidnapped and was briefly held for ransom.

Whitehead has an uphill battle to make the Cowboys' roster, and off-field distractions won't help. The dog was eventually returned to Whitehead.

Could this all be a case of mistaken identity?

Ford aircraft carrier gets commissioned in Virginia
Taken on her own, the Ford is the most expensive ship of any kind ever built, with a construction cost of almost $13 billion. Mr Trump said at the event in Norfolk, Virginia: "I hereby place United States Ship Gerald R Ford in commission".

The warrant is the latest issue for the Cowboys, who have a steady stream of off-the-field issues.

Whitehead failed to notify the team about his incident.

"So just to come in and know I'll have all this time and all these reps to get better, I'm excited".

Whitehead only has nine catches in his two-year career with the Cowboys, which might explain why Garrett and the Cowboys are adopting this hardline stance. According to ESPN's Todd Archer, a source has informed him the Cowboys were looking to move ahead anyways based on a "number of incidents." Whitehead was arrested for allegedly stealing from a WAWA and later charged with larceny. He has another court hearing scheduled for August 10. The running back also is awaiting possible punishment from the National Football League stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident last July in Columbus, Ohio.
