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. Failure to appear has been stacked on to the shoplifting charge.
The theft happened in June, and a warrant for his arrest was issued on July 6 after he failed to appear in court. He has another hearing on August 10.More news: Destiny 2 PS4 Beta Starts
A Cowboys spokesman said the team has no comment on the matter.
Could this all be a case of mistaken identity?
During the 2016 National Football League season, Whitehead missed a Saturday walkthrough, resulting in head coach Jason Garrett informing him to skip the flight.
"I don't know who got arrested in Virginia". He later announced on social media that the dog had been returned unharmed. Their star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, is involved in some legal trouble after a nightclub incident.More news: 8 people found dead in tractor-trailer in San Antonio
Whitehead was on the field with them Monday morning but gone by the afternoon.
Whitehead was late to a Saturday walkthrough before a game at the New York Giants last December, and coach Jason Garrett told him not to join the team flight. He has rushed 20 times for 189 yards and caught nine passes for 64 yards.
The Cowboys moved swiftly in releasing Whitehead after two defensive players were arrested during the offseason. The team also signed Greg Hardy in 2015 after Hardy was convicted of domestic violence.More news: Slight building rain chances into the weekend
