Baker's lawyer, Jamal Hamood, says he plans to file a motion Friday to cancel the warrant. Hamood says Baker wasn't served with papers and didn't know she had been sued in 2011 by Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating. He says Baker is out of town and will remain so until the warrant issue is cleared up.

The company's lawyer, Daniel Gerow, tells The Detroit News he doesn't want Baker to go to jail, but only wants to see his client get paid.
