*Arrest warrants have been issued in South Florida for Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker and Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar after an alleged armed robbery.

Both have been slapped with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm for an incident Wednesday night in Miramar, Fla., the Miramar Police Department confirmed Thursday, per New York Post.

An arrest warrant for the two players was issued over social media on Thursday night, with the police department tagging their respective NFL teams in the post. Baker also faces an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, USA Today reports.

According to the police report, Baker and Dunbar robbed guests of thousands of dollars in cash and jewelry while at a cookout Wednesday night.

Baker allegedly brandished a weapon after an argument erupted during a card game, and another man identified as “Shy” flipped over a card table and also pulled out a firearm. Baker then told Shy and Dunbar along with a third individual to start robbing the people at the party, per the report. They even threatened to shoot guests if they left the house.

Via NY Post:

Baker and two others are accused of pre-planning the incident because they left in three separate vehicles — a Mercedez Benz, Lamborghini and BMW — that were pre-positioned to expedite an immediate departure from the area, according to the police.

The reporting officer said he contacted Baker by using the cell phone of a friend but Baker hung up. Another call went unanswered.

“We are aware of the situation,” a Giants spokesperson said. “We have been in contact with DeAndre. We have no further comment at this time.”

Baker was selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft. He signed a four-year/$10M contract that reportedly included a signing bonus of $5.6 as part of the $6M in cash he received as a rookie.

One Twitter user reacted to the news of his alleged criminal act by writing, “DeAndre Baker rather be in prison than play for the Giants. Can’t fault the brotha.”
