Attorney: 5 witnesses exonerate Quinton Dunbar of involvement in alleged armed robbery

NFL: Washington Redskins at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

One of the strangest stories of the offseason took another turn on Friday afternoon.

Michael Grieco, the attorney for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, reached out to members of the media on Friday to say he has affidavits from five witnesses exonerating Dunbar of involvement in the armed robbery that resulted in an arrest warrant put out for Dunbar on Thursday.

Speaking with David Ovalle of the Miami Herald, Grieco continued his defense of his client saying, “I have never in my career seen a police department so excited about arresting a celebrity.”

Grieco added to Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640, “I can’t believe Miramar PD did a virtual touchdown dance without investigating further.”

This comes just a day after Miramar Police tweeted news of the arrest warrants for Quinton Dunbar and Giants cornerback Deandre Baker, tagging the Seahawks and Giants while doing so.

The attached affidavit included conflicting reports from witnesses as to whether Dunbar was armed or not.

As Cameron Wolfe of ESPN added, Miramar Police still insist Dunbar turns himself in. Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest reached out to the department after news broke of the conflicting witness reports.

As of now, neither Dunbar or Baker have turned themselves into Miramar Police. As the past two days have taught us, there is more to come on this story.
