Lucky Whitehead cut by Cowboys

Lucky Whitehead cut by Cowboys

Yesterday, word started getting around that Cowboys receiver Lucky Whitehead had skipped a court date after being arrested for shoplifting at a Woodbridge, Va., convenience store. The Cowboys wasted no time and cut him immediately.

Early on Monday, TMZ reported Whitehead had been arrested on June 22.

Reports surfaced Monday that Whitehead had been charged with that crime and with missing a related court date on July 6.

Whitehead even told Scout.com's Mike Fisher that he wasn't even in the state of Virginia at the time of the incident.

And adding to the trouble, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the team didn't know of the arrest before today.

Dave Rich, the agent that represents Whitehead called the incident a case of mistaken identity and he disputed if the arrest had ever been made.

The writing was on the wall a bit as far as Whitehead's roster spot, as the Cowboys spent a draft pick on receiver/returner Ryan Switzer.

The apology is too late for Whitehead and his employment with the Cowboys.

The statement says the man arrested in the incident did not have identification on him and verbally provided the name, birthdate and social security number of Rodney Darnell Whitehead Jr.

Police also compared the DMV photo on file with the man in custody and "acted in good faith that, at the time, the man in custody was the same man matching the information provided".

Police later released a statement confirming the mistake.

The team has insisted that Whitehead was not some type of fall guy though and said they will not rescind his release because they have moved on.

According to ESPN, Whitehead told reporters Monday: "I didn't know about that" and "I don't know what's going on". The dog was eventually returned to Whitehead.

"Lucky is thrilled justice was served and his name was cleared", said Paul. "It's a shame that he came into town to do a camp for kids and he ended up getting cut by his professional football team".

Lucky Whitehead expressed disappointment the Cowboys didn't believe his side of the story.
