The attorney for Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar says he has five signed affidavits from witnesses to Wednesday's night alleged armed robbery that claim Dunbar was not involved.
Attorney Michael Grieco told David Ovalle of the Miami Herald that the affidavits exonerate Dunbar from any wrongdoing.
“All of the affidavits indicate my client is innocent,” Greico said.
Dunbar and New York Giants cornerback Deandre Baker have been charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm after allegedly stealing over $70,000 worth of valuables, mainly watches, and cash from attendees of a part in Miramar, Florida. Baker has also been charged with four additional counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Witness accounts in the report varied as to whether Dunbar had a firearm. At least one witness said Dunbar was in possession of a semi-automatic firearm.
However, Grieco's claims say five other witnesses from the party have sworn that Dunbar was not involved in the incident. He was also critical of the Miramar Police Department for their handling of the arrest warrants by tagging the Seahawks and New York Giants' twitter accounts in relation to the public release of the warrants.
“I have never in my career seen a police department so excited about arresting a celebrity,” he said.
The Miramar P.D. responded to Grieco's claims in comments to New York Daily News reporter Pat Leonard. The department stands by their evidence and said they have recorded statement from the victims involved disputing Greico's assertions.
"We have taped statements, sworn statements from each of the victims that were interviewed separately (four victims, one witness)," public information officer Tania Rues said. "The affidavit speaks for itself. If the victims have a different story to tell they have not come to the Miramar police department and given any revised or different statements. If the victims have a different story to tell, they have not come to the police department to give it."
