Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar has surrendered to police, according to his lawyer Michael Grieco.
He also called out the police department in his statement.
“Today our client Quintin Dubar voluntarily surrendered at the Broward County jail pursuant to a bogus arrest warrant based solely on uncorroborated witness statements that have since been recanted. As I write this an innocent man sits in jail, facing charges that hold no water. His career and reputation have been put in jeopardy as a result of an overzealous @miramarpd that was so excited about arresting a pro football player that they tweeted out their celebration and even tagged his employer in their unprofessional “virtual touchdown dance.”
“When this case gets dropped I wonder if the Miramar cops will be tweeting out their apology too. In my 20-year criminal justice career I have rarely seen an injustice like this. Quintin has never been in trouble before and to think he’s now sitting in jail risking his health during a pandemic due to recanted false allegations makes me sick. This is when the prosecutors can correct the wrongs committed by police’s rush to judgement.”
Dunbar and Giants second-year CB Deandre Baker are accused of armed robbery and arrest warrants were issued for them on Thursday. Baker also turned himself in on Saturday.
Dunbar was said to be assisting in taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker. In total, Baker allegedly stole $12,400 in cash from four people and four watches ranging in price from $600 to $25,000 worth $61,100 in total.
The 27-year-old recorded 37 total tackles, one tackle for loss, four interceptions and eight pass defenses during the 2019 season.
