Ex-Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Mulling Legal Action After Arrest Mix-Up Got Him Cut From Team (AUDIO)
Lucky Whitehead probably had the worst 2-week stretch an athlete has ever had in recent memory, and it had nothing to do with his performance on the field.
Whitehead was wrongly identified by police in a shoplifting arrest, which cause courts to put out a warrant for his arrest because he didn’t show for a court date that wasn’t actually for him. The Cowboys didn’t care. They cut him from the squad.
In a telephone interview, Whitehead didn’t rule out filing a lawsuit as the accusations had him ‘blindsided’ and, even worse, he says nobody on the Cowboys ‘had his back’.
