The original incident occurred on May 13 in Miramar, Florida. Baker was released on bond while the investigation was pending. It is unknown when the next court date will be. Prosecutors reportedly denied to charge the other NFL player, Seattle’s Quinton Dunbar, involved in the incident due to “insufficient evidence,” Leonard reported.

The two football players had been accused of holding attendees of a barbecue at gunpoint and allegedly stealing $12,800 in cash and roughly $50,000 in luxury watches, according to a report published by NBC Sports.
