Baker got into an argument with another man at a party during the night. The card table was flipped and Baker allegedly took out a gun and pointed it at another player. He asked two other men to “take money and valuables” from the attendees. Now an arrest warrant has been released against him, which records that he and two men stole $4,000 in cash along with another player’s Audemars Piguet watch worth $17,500. They also stole a Hublot watch costing $25,000 and $7,000 in cash from another player.

What do the authorities allege?

Baker allegedly possessed a gun while he used to steal others’ belongings. Dunbar didn’t have a gun but he was allegedly involved in helping to steal the valuables. Baker even told a man in a red mask to shoot a person who had walked into a room. The witness, in this case, is Dominick Johnson who said that he has known the two players since they were kids. He was also present at the party and said that Baker carried arm. He was not robbed on night. Other witnesses suggest that they had not seen a gun in Baker’s hand.

The arrest warrant states that Baker possessed a semi-automatic weapon. The police also tried to talk to him using Johnson’s phone but he hung up the call instead. Both Baker and Dunbar are now wanted on four counts of armed robbery. Baker faces four counts of aggravated assault as well.

One of the victims also said that the robbery could be planned. They suggest that there were three vehicles that were ready to flee from the scene just after the incident took place. The New York Giants said that they are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Baker. However, they didn’t comment further. The Seattle Seahawks said that they are gathering information on the issue.
