According to records online, a July 6 court date had been missed that lead to another charge and the next court date is now August 10.
David Rich, Whitehead's agent, said Monday that Whitehead did not commit the crime and wasn't even in Virginia when the theft happened. With word coming Tuesday that Whitehead has been exonerated of any wrongdoing due to the police arresting a man who wasn't Whitehead but gave Whitehead's information, the team could rescind the move an keep Whitehead.

On July 6th, the alleged instance of missing the court was due to Whitehead never receiving a summons.
Garrett said Monday that cutting Whitehead was good for the team and "hopefully good for him going forward". Whitehead was escorted off the field by a member of the public relations staff, and Garrett said he was unaware of the arrest before being told as he left the practice field. "So just to come in and know I'll have all this time and all these reps to get better, I'm excited".
