San Diego Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie is reportedly under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon in connection with an incident in which someone was hit in the head with a champagne bottle.
But while Cromartie’s apparent claim is that the bottle slipped, there’s now a report that it wasn’t Cromartie who threw the bottle at all.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that several sources told him it wasn’t Cromartie who threw the bottle.
“Before everyone jumps on Cromartie, several sources telling me it wasn’t him who threw bottle. Just saying we need to let facts come out,” Acee tweeted.
Acee’s tweet implies that someone did throw a bottle, just not Cromartie, but there’s no word on who that “someone” is.
Cromartie, meanwhile, has tweeted about the incident as well.
“I want to apologize to charger nation and my fans. There’s sum stuff out abt me that’s not true. It will come out. God Bless,” Cromartie tweeted.
If the stuff out about Cromartie isn’t true, it’s not clear why he’s apologizing. But he’s probably right that the truth will come out.
