Antonio Cromartie being investigated for alleged assault

San Diego Chargers defensive back Antonio Cromartie was under investigation for alleged assault with a deadly weapon stemming from a bar altercation early Monday in Pacific Beach, police said.

Cromartie allegedly threw a champagne bottle that hit another person in the head at Bar West, 959 Hornblend St., around 1:15 a.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.

The Pro Bowl star said that it “slipped out of his hand,” said department spokesman Detective Gary Hassen. No injuries were serious enough to require hospital treatment, according to the detective, and no one was arrested.

Cromartie and other Chargers player were at the bar celebrating the Bolts 32-3 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The win put the team atop the AFC West.

Hassen said a police report about the fight would be turned over to the City Attorney’s Office for review later Monday.
