Report: Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Arrested For Shoplifting

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead after he failed to appear for arraignment in connection to a previously unknown June shoplifting charge, according to a report. A Cowboys special teamer, Whitehead was arrested in Virginia in June for shoplifting after he allegedly took stuff from a convenience store.

A warrant is now out for his arrest after he missed a July 6 court date.

Whitehead will have to step away from the team during training camp for a Virginia court date August 10.

Whitehead, 25, joined the Cowboys in 2015 as an undrafted free-agent. He has caught just nine passes in his National Football League career, but served as the team's return man.

His job is reportedly in jeopardy heading into training camp, and a potential arrest likely won't do much to help his cause to stick with the Cowboys this season.

Whitehead was given a court summons at the scene and released, according to police. However, they were beaten by the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs at home, 34-31.
