A Dallas Cowboys wide receive and kick returner named “Lucky Whitehead” was released by the team on Monday (yesterday) after he was arrested for shoplifting in Prince William County, Virginia; a suburb of Washington, D.C.

Whitehead’s Agent Dave Rich is denying the incident saying that it is a case of mistaken identity, but Prince William County Police Sgt. Jonathan Perok said 25-year-old Rodney Darnell Whitehead Jr. was arrested around 1:30 a.m. on Monday for taking about $40 worth of food and drink from a convenience store.

Lucky Whitehead was escorted off the field by a member of the Cowboys’ Public Relations Staff at the Training Camp in Oxnard, California.

 Dave Rich – Whitehead’s Agent said that Lucky Whitehead didn’t arrive in Virginia until about 10 hours after the arrest.

The Cowboys moved swiftly in releasing Whitehead after two defensive players were arrested during the offseason.
