As per the police report, the incident occurred all of a sudden. The patrons were playing cards when the 22-year-old Giants cornerback and a person identified as “Shy” flipped the table and brandished firearms. However, nowhere in the report does it state that Dunbar used the firearm to threaten anyone. Instead, it was the New York Giants no. 27 who made the demands for the valuables and threatened victims. 

The report also states the cornerback duo lost $70,000 at another party. Their fans will be dismayed at them thinking of recouping their losses in this manner. This is because they make way more while playing football. 2019 top round pick Baker is on an 8 figure 4-year contract.
