    Warrant Issued For Dallas Cowboys Receiver Lucky Whitehead in Virginia

    After failing to appear in court over a shoplifting charge in Virginia, Dallas Cowboys Receiver Rodney Darnell Whitehead - better known as Lucky Whitehead - has a warrant out for his arrest, according to TMZ Sports.

    Whitehead, 25, was in the news just last week after he returned to his Dallas home to find out his dog was being held for ransom, according to him.

    Local rapper Boogotti Kasino responded to Whitehead's accusation by claiming the dog was not stolen, but that Whitehead did owe him money. 

    The situation was resolved after Whitehead told NBC 5 the dog was returned to him, without payment.

    Whitehead, who has played for the Cowboys the past two seasons, was originally charged with shoplifting around 1 a.m. on June 22, in Prince William County, Virginia.

    Whitehead was given a court summons at the scene and released, according to police. He now faces charges for failing to appear in court as well, according to court records.

    The receiver is in the final year of a three-year deal with Cowboys.

    Whitehead is currently with the team in Oxnard, California, for training camp.
