Shoplifting charges dropped against WR Lucky Whitehead

Report: Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Arrested For Shoplifting

Cowboys' brass is clearly trying to send a message to their locker room in the wake of Whitehead's release.

The police are now seeking the correct identity of the man arrested on June 22 for allegedly taking items from a Wawa convenience store without paying at approximately 1:30 a.m. As well as the Whitehead saga, star running back Ezekiel Elliott was allegedly involved in an altercation at a bar on Sunday but was not charged, while wide receiver Dez Bryant missed a team meeting.

Whitehead was believed to have shoplifted food and drinks from a Manassas, Va. convenience store June 22 and was charged with failing to appear at a July 6 court date.

Whitehead arrived late to a walkthrough on a Saturday prior to a game last December in NY and head coach Jason Garrett informed him to not fly with the team. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said he didn't learn of the arrest until Monday morning.

As soon as the release of Whitehead was official, his agent, David Rich, spoke out to ESPN's Adam Schefter, adding that Whitehead wasn't even in Virginia at the time of the incident and was on his way to Dallas.

The Cowboys have not made a statement regarding the Whitehead update.

The saga came about a week after Whitehead claimed on Twitter that someone had taken his dog and was holding it for ransom. On Monday, Whitehead had said that this was a case of mistaken identity, telling Mike Fisher of Dallas' 105.3 The Fan: "I don't know who got arrested in Virginia, but it wasn't me". That information was checked through the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, which provided a photo that was compared to the man in custody.

Lucky Whitehead may want to consider going by his birth name of Rodney after an extraordinary week of bad news.

Following a day of a lot of "Say what?", the Cowboys have made a decision to part ways with WR Lucky Whitehead. "I think it will make him stronger".

"The police department regrets the impact these events had on Mr. Whitehead and his family", the statement said. He later announced on social media that the dog had been returned unharmed.
