Cowboys Cut Lucky Whitehead After Arrest, Agent Claims Mistaken Identity

Cowboys Cut Lucky Whitehead After Arrest, Agent Claims Mistaken Identity

Whitehead was about to begin the third year of his career with the Cowboys, but didn't make a big enough impact on the field for them to keep him.

The saga of Lucky Whitehead has already taken some interesting twists and turns since news broke Monday morning that a warrant was out for his arrest.

The reason? Whitehead was charged with larceny after an alleged shoplifting incident in Virginia back in June, but he failed to show to his arraignment July 6. According to Virginia court records, the 25-year-old has a new arraignment hearing scheduled for August 10 for petit larceny and failure to appear.

With another court hearing scheduled in the next two weeks, the Dallas Cowboys decided they had enough of Whitehead.

It's been an odd offseason for Whitehead, who said last week that his dog had been taken and was being held for ransom, then said a day later that his dog had been returned. He's blaming it on a case of mistaken identity and supposedly has flight records to prove it.

Coach Jason Garrett, when asked if he may be released from the team said: 'Well, absolutely.

"We will do what's in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys", Garrett told reporters at training camp in Oxnard, Calif. The blotter is loading up with significant contributors on this team, including running back Ezekiel Elliott, who could be in for a very lengthy suspension to start the season.

The one upside in all of this for Whitehead is that he was probably going to get cut anyway. The team also signed Greg Hardy in 2015 after Hardy was convicted of domestic violence.
