Cow­boys dump White­head

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL/NFL -

OX­NARD, Calif. — The Dal­las Cow­boys have re­leased re­ceiver and kick re­turner Lucky White­head af­ter the third-year player was linked to a shoplift­ing ar­rest in his home state of Vir­ginia, with his agent say­ing he be­lieved it was a case of mis­taken iden­tity.

White­head said he “didn’t know about that” as he was es­corted off the field by a mem­ber of the Cow­boys’ public re­la­tions staff af­ter the first morn­ing walk­through prac­tice of train­ing camp Mon­day.

Prince Wil­liam County Po­lice Sgt. Jonathan Perok said 25-year-old Rod­ney Dar­nell White­head Jr. was ar­rested around 1:30 a.m. June 22 for tak­ing about $40 worth of food and drink from a con­ve­nience store.

Perok said he couldn’t con­firm that the man ar­rested was the Dal­las re­ceiver, but on­line records matched his name and birth­date. The Cow­boys’ me­dia guide lists White­head’s given first name of Rod­ney.

White­head’s agent, Dave Rich, de­nied that his client was ar­rested, say­ing he didn’t ar­rive in Vir­ginia un­til about 10 hours af­ter the ar­rest. Rich said White­head de­nied be­ing ar­rested.
