Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker was released on a $200,000 bond after meeting before a judge in Broward County, Fla. Sunday morning.
Baker turned himself into police on Saturday morning after an arrest warrant was issued for crimes he allegedly committed on May 13. Baker was charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.
The state prosecutor asked Baker to be held without bond. As part of the conditions of his bond (which was determined as $25,000 per charge), Baker must submit any firearms to police within 48 hours and is prohibited to leave the state of Florida.
According to the arrest warrant, Baker, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and another individual wearing a red mask robbed guests at a house party in Mirarmar, Fla. on Wednesday night by gunpoint. They left with at least $7,000 in cash plus several expensive watches.
Witnesses interviewed in the warrant identified Baker holding a gun and ordering the unknown third assailant to shoot an individual who walked into the room. No shots were fired. There were conflicting witness accounts on whether or not Dunbar had a weapon.
Dunbar’s bail was set at $100,000 and he also cannot leave the state and must submit firearms to police within 48 hours.
Baker and Dunbar had lost $70,000 in a high-stakes card game at a party just two days earlier, according to the warrant.
Both Baker and Dunbar’s attorneys claim that their client is innocent.
