NFL duo Baker and Dunbar surrender to police over armed robbery charges

Baker also faces four counts of aggravated assault related to an alleged incident at a party.

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE players DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar have surrendered to Florida police to face charges of armed robbery. 

Baker of the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Dunbar each face four counts of armed robbery. 

Baker also faces four counts of aggravated assault related to an alleged incident at a party on Wednesday night in Miramar, Florida.

“Reports are correct that Deandre turned himself in this morning,” Baker’s attorney, lawyer Bradford Cohen, said. 

“I am a believer in the system and that if everything works the matter will be appropriately resolved.”

Lawyers for both players said on Saturday that they would be able to gather witnesses to prove their clients did not do what the police claim.
