Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, cut by the Giants last month, decided to wait to sign with a new team. While waiting, he hosted a celebrity pool party on Sunday night. A man was allegedly shot at the party.

Via Will Kennedy of the Tampa Bay Times, Hillsborough County deputies arrived at roughly 7:45 p.m. local time after a report of shots fired at the Clarion Inn and Conference Center in Brandon. No injured persons were discovered at the scene, but man later went to a local hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The man has refused to cooperate with the authorities.

Hotel management claimed in an email to the Times that the incident occurred off the hotel’s premises and involved none of the persons attending the pool party.

Rodgers-Cromartie faced no allegations of wrongdoing. The party was promoted as an event that would be attended by celebrities and athletes. The report identifies none other than Rodgers-Cromartie.

  1. Never talk to the po-lice..just protest them. Most ignorant culture in the world.

  2. And the cycle of violence continues. Being a law abiding citizen seeking justice is forsaken for the long-standing tradition of not being labeled a ‘snitch’.

  3. He’s saving it until HE gets in trouble. Attempted homicide is the exact same charge as a homicide just with a box checked off for ‘attempted’. It affects the sentencing and plea bargain down to assault 1. But the actual penal law charge is the same. Like 187 in LA but with a box checked for under the ‘Attempted’ column, for example.

    So, in ALL jurisdictions it’s a permanently open case. Police higher ups care about ‘closed cases’ not justice. So this guy has a ‘get out of jail’ card. First thing you ask a new arrestee is if they have a get out of jail card. ALL prisoners (where I worked) were required to be interviewed about any knowledge of any crime. REQUIRED. So they KNOW.

    Not to mention, telling on him may get him killed. But when push comes to shove, the card will be used.

    If people think ‘snitches get stitches’, they watch too much TV. I did this for a living. People will ‘give up’ almost anyone to stay out of jail. Honor among thieves is the most misguided perception out there. It’s all about staying out on the streets, at all costs.

  4. Hotel management claimed in an email to the Times that the incident occurred off the hotel’s premises and involved none of the persons attending the pool party.

    This is the exact opposite of what the headline says.
