According to reporting by the Miami Herald, Quinton Dunbar’s lawyer Michael Grieco says all five witnesses have signed sworn affidavits that exonerate his client in Wednesday’s alleged armed robbery in Broward County.
According to the police report, witnesses claimed Baker instructed at least two men to take money and expensive watches from individuals at a party. The warrant alleges that Baker and another man flipped over a table and pulled out semi-automatic firearms after an argument broke out during a card game.
There were conflicting accounts from witnesses as to whether or not Dunbar had a gun.
Grieco told the Miami Herald he presented the affidavits to the Broward County State Attorney’s Office on Friday. “All of the affidavits indicate my client is innocent,” Grieco said.
He added, “I have never in my career seen a police department so excited about arresting a celebrity.”
Dunbar, who was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a fifth-round pick in March after playing for five seasons with the Washington Redskins, attended Booker T. Washington High School in Miami before playing his college ball at the University of Florida.
Baker went to Miami Northwestern HS and played for the Georgia Bulldogs. He was a first-round pick for the New York Giants in the 2019 NFL Draft. Baker had 55 tackles and eight passes defended in 16 games as a rookie.
Neither Baker or Dunbar had turned themselves in as of late Friday afternoon. Baker is facing eight different felony charges.
