Cowboys' Lucky Whitehead arrested for shoplifting in Virginia

A warrant is now out for his arrest after he missed a July 6 court date. According to the report, he robbed a convenience store of items less than $200.

Dallas police suspended that investigation, but Elliott has also faced accusations of domestic violence, and reports have said the National Football League is considering suspending the Cowboys' star.

Cowboys officials first learned of the incident Monday, per Hill.

Whitehead, 25, was scheduled to appear in court on July 6 on a petty larceny charge involving a June 22 shoplifting at the Wawa at Daniel Stuart Square in Woodbridge, said Prince William police spokesman Nathan Probus.

Whitehead had this warrant hanging over his head last week when he made national news after posting on Instragram about his dog being allegedly kidnapped and held for ransom by a Fort Worth rapper.




He is the third Cowboys player to be arrested since the end of last season.

The dog was soon returned, but Whitehead's already tenuous spot on the Cowboys roster is now in jeopardy.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in an altercation on July 16 at a club in Dallas where a man was punched. He has rushed 20 times for 189 yards and caught nine passes for 64 yards. The team is also still awaiting word on the outcome of the NFL's investigation into domestic violence allegations against Ezekiel Elliott past year.

Whitehead's legal trouble is just the most recent - or at least the latest to come to light - for the Cowboys in recent months.
