Whitehead was arrested after police responded to a reported larceny early June 22 at the Wawa at 2051 Daniel Stuart Square in Woodbridge, Prince William police spokesperson Officer Nathan Probus said Monday. In June, Whitehead was allegedly arrested for shoplifting from a convenience store, and failed to show up to his court date on July 6.

The Dallas Cowboys have had a tumultuous week to say the least. Still the Cowboys announced they released Whitehead.

"Right now he just wants to play football", Rich said.

Rich, Whitehead's agent, told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport that his client was not in Virginia at the time of the incident. "I didn't know about a warrant that came about in the first place clearly because I wasn't the person arrested". But it wasn't me. I never once had an altercation with the cops.

Team executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones dismissed such a notion Monday. It possibly will not matter if Whitehead is proven innocent.

I'm not going to accuse LeBron of such a thing, I don't know that to be true at all, but I know that's what Kyrie Irving believes. That he didn't like seeing James' friends getting special treatment from the franchise compared to his own friends.

Despite the news, the Cowboys said they're not looking to bring Whitehead back to the team.

"I just think we've given Lucky a lot of different chances along the way going back to a year ago", Jones said Monday, per the team's official website. "Worried about his situation".

"We looked at it, we looked at his full body of work and we made a decision to move on", Jones said. This led to Monday's glaring headlines that Whitehead skipped the hearing and an warrant for his arrest had been issued. "It was, 'You better have a darn good reason for this, ' and we were completely blindsided by it". They grow and they develop and they become great citizens and great players.

Said Garrett: "We know a lot of things about our players that you guys don't know". There are plenty of examples of that as well.

Whitehead made news last week as well when he claimed someone stole his dog and held it for ransom. In one instance he did not inform the team about a vehicle accident in which he was involved. The previous night, Whitehead was out late, and posted videos to his Snapchat during his night out.

Whitehead later released a statement to CowboysHQ.com, denying that he'd been arrested for shoplifting.

An arrest warrant for failing to appear is now out for Whitehead who has an August 10 court date.

Whitehead reportedly paid an undisclosed sum and Blitz was returned safely. The police department is now seeking the identity of the man involved in the incident. The team also signed Greg Hardy in 2015 after Hardy was convicted of domestic violence.

Linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested July 4 on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Their draft pick, Jourdan Lewis, is in court for a domestic incident from his days at MI.

Lucky Whitehead didn't do it.
