Anita Baker Issued Arrest Warrant For Ditching Court Appearance

Anita Baker is wanted by police in Detroit. She failed to show up to court for a hearing in her legal battle with a paint and decorating company. The company claims she owes $15,000 for work performed inside her giant Grosse Pointe home.

According to USA TODAY

The bench warrant stems from Grammy Award-winning singer’s failure to appear at a creditor’s examination in Wayne County Circuit Court last September after she was subpoenaed to be there, said attorney Dan Gerow, who is representing Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating Inc.

According to Wayne County Circuit Court records online, a bench warrant was signed and filed Wednesday.
