Head Wound Victim In Alleged Bottle Throwing Assault By Antonio Cromartie

(Victim’s friends claims alleged attack came “out of the blue”. Really?)

The victim claims to TMZ he blacked out after his friends witnessed Cromartie “smash a bottle of Moet” into his head.

After the attack, the victim was taken to a local hospital, where he received three staples and underwent a CAT scan.

Meanwhile, Cromartie Tweeted about the incident today.

If the assault accusation is not true, why is he apologizing?

The friends of the victim claimed to TMZ today that Stephen Cooper and Shaun Phillips were present during the attack, which resulted after a large group of people began spraying champagne at the Pacific Beach bar.

Now for the part that’s hard to believe:

SD Outlet Mistakenly Reports Cromartie ‘Arrested’

UPDATE: The La Jolla (CA) Light mistakenly reported Cromartie as being “arrested” and has since changed the headline of its story.

UPDATE: The SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE reports that Stephen Cooper was also in the bar with Cromartie when the alleged assault took place.

UPDATE: The man who covers the Chargers the closest, SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE beat writer Kevin Acee, reportsBefore everyone jumps on Cromartie, several sources telling me it wasn’t him who threw bottle. Just saying we need to let facts come out.

Not disputing Acee’s sources, but Cromartie’s “it slipped” admission to police doesn’t exactly work in his favor.

The LA JOLLA (CA) LIGHT headlines today that Antonio Cromartie has been arrested by San Diego police for his role in an altercation at a San Diego bar last night.

Cromartie allegedly threw a champagne bottle that hit another person in the head at Bar West, 959 Hornblend St., around 1:15 a.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.

The Pro Bowl star said that it “slipped out of his hand,” said department spokesman Detective Gary Hassen. No injuries were serious enough to require hospital treatment, according to the detective, and no one was arrested.

Hassen said a police report about the fight would be turned over to the City Attorney’s Office for review later Monday.

The headline indicates that Cromartie has been arrested, but the copy states otherwise. That seems like an either/or, so a clarification should be forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Cromartie’s agent Gary Wichard has also addressed his client’s possible involvement in the incident. And Wichard’s comments suggest that more Chargers were involved in the incident.
