DeAndre Baker’s lawyer says CB was playing Madden at the site of an armed robbery


Patrick Patel, one of the lawyers for Giants CB DeAndre Baker, told New york post Baker was playing the Madden video game on Tuesday when the heckling started at another Baker’s party room in Miami last week where there was an alleged armed robbery.

Baker, a 2019 Giants first-round pick, on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to eight counts related to the alleged armed robbery that occurred last week.

“Far from an individual who goes somewhere with the alleged intention of robbing someone, an armed robbery, to go there and plug in his game ‘Madden’, play the game for more than an hour, then leave it there and go home, “Patel told Publish.

“… And this heckling explodes in another room of this house. It has nothing to do with heckling. He hasn’t even seen it. The only thing he sees is out of the corner of his eye a table turned over and everyone was running, screaming and screaming. And he went out. Thank goodness it bounced. “

The incident occurred on May 13, according to a police affidavit. Baker and Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar were charged with theft, which saw money and valuables stolen from other witnesses at a party in Miramar, Florida .

By Patel, Baker came to the party with his video game console, two controllers and a charger. He entered the house, plugged in the console and played the game for over an hour before leaving it in error. Patel said to Publish they’re trying to get electronic evidence that the Giants CB was playing “Madden” that night in addition to acquiring other video evidence to wipe their client out of the charges.
