Attorney for former Florida Gator Quinton Dunbar speaks out on robbery allegations
Former Florida Gator Quinton Dunbar found himself making headlines for the wrong reasons on Thursday when news broke that he was involved in an armed robbery along with former Georgia defensive back Deandre Baker. Now, Dunbar’s attorney is speaking out to the media.
Dunbar’s attorney, Micahel Grieco, told David Ovalle of the Miami Herald that five witnesses attest that “Dunbar was in no way involved” in the alleged taking of jewelry and money from guests at a Wednesday night house party in Miramar, Florida.
“All of the affidavits indicate my client is innocent,” Grieco told The Herald.
According to the arrest warrant, Baker was armed and instructed at least two people to take valuables, including “luxury watches,” and cash from the party guests. Police said Dunbar was seen helping Baker.
Grieco further criticized Miramar PD for “tagging” the Seattle Seahawks account when tweeting the arrest warrant. Dunbar was traded by the Washington Redskins to the Seahawks in March for a fifth-round draft pick.
“I have never in my career seen a police department so excited about arresting a celebrity,” he commented to The Herald.
While the witnesses’ affidavits have been submitted to the Broward County State Attorney’s Office, the Miami Herald report says police are still requiring Dunbar turn himself in to be jailed.
Dunbar, from Miami, played at Florida from 2010-14 as a wide receiver. After going undrafted in 2015, he managed to make the Redskins roster as a defensive back.
JUST IN: Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar, accused of armed robbery, has letters from the alleged victims saying he was not involved.
“I can’t believe Miramar PD did a virtual touchdown dance without investigating further,” his attorney Michael Grieco tells me.
