Update: Quinton Dunbar has turned himself in

Update: Quinton Dunbar's lawyer says he has signed affidavits from 5 witnesses that exonerate him

The Redskins traded disgruntled CB Quinton Dunbar to the Seattle Seahawks for a 5th round pick on March 23rd. That pick was used to draft Michigan safety/LB Khaleke Hudson. Not even two months later Dunbar has an arrest warrant out for Armed Robbery with a Firearm.

The Redskins caught some flak from fans and outside observers for giving a starting CB away for one Day 3 pick. Ron Rivera said he wanted people that wanted to be here, and Dunbar's demands for a trade or his release if he didn't get a new deal didn't fit the new culture. Dunbar was not given a new deal in Seattle either, but was expected to compete for a starting spot, and earn a big payday if he could stay healthy.

Dunbar is wanted for reportedly participating in a robbery with New York Giants CB Deandre Baker. The description is crazy for two professional NFL players who are on million dollar contracts. Obviously more details will come out, and both players still have to turn themselves in, but this is a serious charge that could end both of their careers.
