The Cowboys Cut Lucky Whitehead Despite Claim He Was In Dallas At The Time Of His Alleged Arrest

The Dallas Cowboys cut receiver Lucky Whitehead yesterday after news of a June arrest in Virginia and a subsequent missed court date.

According to Lucky, he wasn't the one who was arrested, because he was in Dallas at the time of the arrest and has a plane ticket to prove it, ESPN:

Whitehead's agent, David Rich, told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the crime is a case of mistaken identity and Whitehead committed no crime, as he was not in Virginia when the incident occurred.

On June 22, Whitehead was in Dallas, per his flight ticket. His United flight left at 7:18 a.m. direct to Washington, D.C., that morning and landed at 11:30 a.m., 10 hours after the alleged crime occurred.

I guess the Cowboys don't have room for a guy who wasn't actually arrested.  They prefer their players to have an actual arrest record.
