Wife of CB Cromartie Fakes Suicide Attempt

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie made a frantic call to police in New Jersey after receiving the following text messages from his wife Terricka Cason Cromartie.

“God forgive me, I don’t want to die. What have I done?” and “I cut my wrists. I took those pills.”

“There’s a problem at my house. She’s bleeding. She cut her wrists,” Cromartie told the dispatcher.

When no one answered the bell or phone at 21 Fairfield Ave., cops broke down two doors with an ax and sledgehammer, ran upstairs and found Terricka in bed with her two daughters.

Terricka confessed she had faked the suicide try because she thought Cromartie — who has 10 kids, including eight with seven other women — was “cheating on her.”

“She stated that she had no intention of going through with the act,” says a police report on the May 6, 2011 incident. “She said she was exercising her First Amendment right to free speech and could say whatever she wanted.”

Officers told Terricka she had to undergo a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. Terricka objected, saying that a paid driver was coming to take to her to the airport to go to Miami, and that she would be in her sister’s wedding that weekend.

But when police insisted she was “in need of involuntary commitment.” She became “belligerent, uncooperative, irrational and argumentative.”
