A day after an arrest warrant was issued for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar for armed robbery, Dunbar remains at large along with New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker. However, Dunbar is already building his case for innocence.
Dunbar’s lawyer told The Miami Herald that the 27-year-old defensive back is innocent and there are witnesses who have already come forward to defend him.
Michael Grieco, who represents Dunbar, said that five witnesses signed affidavits sent to the Broward State Attorney’s Office that stated Dunbar wasn’t involved in the armed robbery. While the Miramar Police Department has statements from witnesses at the party suggesting Dunbar helped assist Baker to take valuables from people at the party, it seems there is at least one more version of this wild story.
Grieco also had heated words for the Miramar police. When the police department tweeted out the news on Thursday night, they tagged the Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants’ Twitter accounts.
“I have never in my career seen a police department so excited about arresting a celebrity,” Grieco said, via The Miami Herald.
While Grieco called out the police department and defended his client, he did not provide any answer to when Dunbar would surrender to police. Prosecutors are still requiring that Seattle’s top cornerback turn himself into the police for arrest and he remains a suspect at this time.
Dunbar, who was traded to the Seahawks this offseason, is facing the four counts of armed robbery. The team released a statement on Thursday night saying they are aware of the incident, but won’t comment further until NFL investigators and local authorities examine the matter.
