Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Wanted for Shoplifting

If his roster spot wasn't already in jeopardy, may have sealed the deal.  We have today that a warrant has been issued for Whitehead's for a shoplifting charge in Virginia from June. Lucky also failed to appear in court on July 6th for the charges.

In the state of Virginia, petty larceny is charged when the amount in question is less than $200. The incident occurred in Prince William County, which is part of Northern VA just outside of Washington D.C.

The Cowboys return man and reserve receiver last year, Whitehead didn't look promising for the 2017 roster after Dallas drafted . The events in Virginia apparently were not news to the team, though, according to one source.

Whether or not the team was aware if Lucky's failure to appear in court, or that this warrant was coming, is another matter. In the end, it may be irrelevant if Whitehead wasn't going to make the roster anyway.

If nothing else, it's yet another legal issue in an filled with P.R. problems for the Cowboys. Whitehead joins (alleged , reckless driving), (DWI arrest), (assault charges), (PED ), and (domestic violence charges) as being in the news for the wrong reasons.

For now, according to , Lucky is with the team in . We'll see how much longer that lasts.
