According to the New York Post, the wife of New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie decided to fake a suicide attempt in order to get her husband’s attention.
While seven months pregnant, Terricka Cason Cromartie sent her husband some very alerting text messages.
“God forgive me, I don’t want to die. What have I done?” and “I cut my wrists. I took those pills.”
While in Miami, Cromartie called the Randolph Township, NJ, police at 2:43 a.m.
“There’s a problem at my house. She’s bleeding. She cut her wrists,” Cromartie told thedispatcher.
Once the police arrived at Cromartie’s home, they didn’t get an answer, so they knocked the door down and ran upstairs and found Terricka in her bed with her two daughters, with no signs of an attempts of a suicide.
Terricka admitted that she faked the suicide attempt in order to get her husbands attention since she thought he was “cheating on her.”
I probably would’ve thought the same thing if I was her, since Antonio does have 10 kids with seven other women.
“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.”
Terricka was asked to under go a psychiatric evaluation by the police, she refused at first but finally gave in.
