The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Lucky Whitehead, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

Despite the revelation that Whitehead wasn't involved, the Cowboys won't consider bringing him back in the immediate future, according to a source within the organization.

In a story first reported by TMZ, Whitehead was arrested in Woodbridge, VA early in the morning of June 22nd. A Wawa store employee notified police a man had left without paying, leading to the arrest and subsequent charge.

Reports surfaced Monday that Whitehead had been charged with that crime and with missing a related court date on July 6.

Whitehead was left off the roster for a game previous year when he missed a team meeting, apparently after a late night out.

Whitehead said that he did not know about that case in Virginia where he is from, while being escorted from the training facilities practice field by a member of the PR staff following the first walkthrough of practice Monday. At this point, the police department is also confident in confirming that Mr. Whitehead's identify was falsely provided to police during the investigation.

However, the Supreme Court of Pakistan continued with its proceedings, including hearing the Panama Papers leaks case. Sharif has dismissed the JIT report as a "bundle of baseless allegations" and refused to quit.


Though, it's also worth pointing out that Whitehead has said he knew nothing about the warrant.

Last season, Whitehead was told not to take a flight for the Cowboys' game against the Giants after being late to a Saturday walk-through. On June 22nd, Whitehead was reportedly arrested by the Prince William County Police Department in his home state of Virginia.

The statement says the man arrested in the incident did not have identification on him and verbally provided the name, birthdate and social security number of Rodney Darnell Whitehead Jr.

Virginia police said Tuesday the officers verified the data provided to them through the DMV and compared a DMV photo of Whitehead with the person in custody.

Jones disputed the notion that Whitehead's release was in response to recent incidents involving other Cowboys players, and said the move wasn't meant to send a message.?

"As far as the whole situation went down, I was blindsided", Whitehead said. It is calculated. But I get it. Kasino said he had not kidnapped the dog but had bought it and wanted Whitehead to reimburse him.
