Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar was released from Broward County Jail in Florida on Sunday on $100,000 bond, a day after surrendering on four felony counts of armed robbery.
Michael Grieco, the attorney for Dunbar, told John Clayton of 710 ESPN Radio that Dunbar did not do anything illegal and was not present at a party last Wednesday night when the alleged crime occurred.
Grieco says he has sworn affidavits from four people named as victims in the initial police report as well as an additional witness that clear Dunbar from any involvement “directly or indirectly” with the alleged robbery. He also said there has been a “mischaracterization” of the relationship between Dunbar and DeAndre Baker, and that the two are not close.
“Completely untrue, at least as it applies to Mr. Dunbar,” Grieco said. “Mr. Dunbar was not with Mr. Baker at any point within the week or weeks prior. I think that there’s been a complete mischaracterization as to the nature of their relationship, which is not as close as it’s been portrayed, at least initially. I can tell you they have their wires crossed on that one. I’ve already advised law enforcement that they’re completely mistaken on that.”
Grieco said that Dunbar has no prior criminal history and expects that he’s “going to walk away from this exonerated.”
According to the police report, Baker pulled out a semi-automatic firearm at a cookout Wednesday night and worked with Dunbar “in taking watches and other valuables.” There have been conflicting reports as to whether Dunbar also had a weapon during the alleged robbery.
