Complicating matters, per TMZ, is the fact Whitehead was supposed to appear in court on July 6 but did not show up.
Whitehead would have to step away from the team during training camp for a Virginia court date August 10.
The Dallas Cowboys announced Monday evening it had released Osbourn High School graduate Lucky Whitehead. However, multiple reporters in Oxnard have received comments from Whitehead himself, stating he had no idea a warrant had been issued.
Last week, Whitehead made headlines when he said that his dog was being held for ransom.
Garrett said any case of mistaken identity was beside the point for the Cowboys.

MK Ahmed Tibi said the metal detectors should be removed, calling them a provocation that "alters the status quo". Israel closed the site for two days following the attack, angering Muslims and Jordan, the site's custodian.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Whitehead served as the team's punt and kickoff returner and combined for nine catches and 64 yards in 30 games over his first two National Football League seasons.
Garrett rejected a comparison between the more serious charges facing Carroll and Wilson and the lesser one facing Whitehead.
"This time previous year, I wasn't the starter but I was the guy out here getting minimal reps at practice", said Prescott before taking the field.
The streak of Dallas Cowboys players running into trouble with the law has exceeded any reasonable explanation.
