There's more legal trouble for the Dallas Cowboys as wide receiver Lucky Whitehead was released after being linked to a shoplifting charge in Virginia.

Whitehead, a 3rd year veteran was cut from the team over an incident his agent says was mistaken identity but, Prince William County Virginia police say 25 yr old Rodney Darnell Whitehead Jr. was arrested in June for allegedly stealing about $40 worth of food and beverages from a convenience store.

Dallas Cowboys management wasted no time in making the move cutting Whitehead. The team has had other issues with players legal troubles already this year, cornerback Nolan Carroll was arrested on drunk driving charges in May, and linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested on aggravated assault charges. Running back Ezekiel Elliott was allegedly involved in a bar fight last week but, he wasn't named in a police report, and has not been charged.
