Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Arrested For Shoplifting

He then was charged with failure to appear when he didn't attend his July 6 arraignment, according to Prince William County General Court records.

The shoplifting arrest reportedly came in connection with a theft from a convenience store.

The Dallas Cowboys' off-the-field issues continued on Monday, as TMZ Sports reported that a warrant had been issued for the arrest of wide receiver Lucky Whitehead.

Asked by reporters about the charges, Whitehead said Monday: "I didn't know about that" and "I don't know what's going on".

It's more tough news for the Cowboys, who also learned today that their Super Bowl hopes have been jinxed by the August cover of D Magazine.

Whitehead is now with the team in Oxnard, California, for training camp.

Whitehead's next hearing is scheduled for August 10, according to court records.

The Cowboys' selection of Ryan Switzer in the fourth round made Whitehead a long shot to return to the Cowboys for a third season.

Whitehead, 25, was in the news just last week after he returned to his Dallas home to find out his dog was being held for ransom, according to him. The running back also is awaiting possible punishment from the National Football League stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident last July in Columbus, Ohio. Whitehead has caught nine passes for 64 yards in his career. He was arrested on a shoplifting/petit larceny under $200 charge.
