NFL Star Investigation -- The Bloody Damage

11/23/2009 4:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a photo of the bloody wound suffered by the man allegedly hit in the head with a champagne bottle last night by San Diego Chargers star Antonio Cromartie.

NFL Star Investigation -- The Bloody Damage


The victim, who has asked not to be identified, tells TMZ he blacked out after being hit and has no recollection of what happened. His friends, however, claim they saw the whole thing -- and witnessed Cromartie smash a bottle of Moet into the victim's head.

Before the incident, the friends claim Antonio had been hanging out with fellow Chargers defensive stars Shaun Phillips and Stephen Cooper when "a bunch of people" began spraying champagne all over the dance floor.

During the "celebration," the friends claim Cromartie took things too far and "out of the blue" approached them and smashed the bottle into the back of the dude's head.

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

Law enforcement sources tell us Cromartie is still under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon -- so far, no arrests have been made.

Oh Hell No! C'mon Guys I can not believe this. I live in San Diego and I am a huge Chargers Fan but this is ridiculous! Norv you are losing control, that makes Merriman & Cromartie a blemish in the Chargers "Kids look up to me" Category.

This jackrabbit CroMommies has more kids than there are days of the week... maybe if he was CroSmartie enuf to spend his nights with his babies (like Philip RIVERS), he could avoid bar brawls...then again, he'd have to give up his favorite past-time of Ho-huntin...

Cromartie what in the F#$# were you thinking?
You are practically one the best safetys in the league and to risk everything on one night of fun is beyond anyone's common sense.
This could be a career ender, if you are indeed guilty and if the person is a raiders or patriots fan, then consider it a career ender buddy.
you messed up real bad, and you let down the entire san diego community, we hope you are innocent, but if you aren't then take care in prison, you would have had a superbowl ring with the chargers sooner or later because we are HOT.

Guys, look at the head again... beneath the hairline is real blood, but above... it's photoshopped. Don't know why... "I'm just sayin'"...

Keep poking around until you find a better answer to the problem
you're facing. It's almost certainly right in front of you, but that
doesn't mean it's obvious. A little sideways thinking ought to do the
trick.
