Antonio Cromartie’s wife, Terricka, claims she was racially profiled by a police officer at a traffic stop Friday morning in Madison and took to Instagram to plead her case.

Terricka Cromartie posted two videos in a series of three posts. The first depicted an exchange she had with the police officer after she was pulled over, and the second showed Cromartie speaking to the camera about her ordeal.

“So apparently you can’t be black, you can’t drive a nice car in Madison at 11:30 in the morning. I mean who cares if you just came from the nail shop, you didn’t get a ticket, the police let you go and say ‘Have a nice day’ like that’s okay,” posted after the incident.

“Driving while Black… I’m thankful to be able to even make this message so many weren’t as luck. But how do you deal with a police office who are simply just harassing you,” she added in a caption accompanying the post.

Terricka Cromartie claims she repeatedly asked the officer why she had been pulled over, but never got an answer.

Here’s the dialogue with the officer:

Cromartie: “Roll my windows down in my car.”

Officer: “For safety reasons, yup.”

Cromartie: “For safety, but I’m not authorized to do that, either.”

Officer: “You don’t have to, which I explained to you.”

Cromartie: “So now I have to tell you why I’m in Madison?”

Officer: “You don’t have to.”

Cromartie: “But why are you asking me why I’m in Madison?”

Officer: “Just curious.”

Cromartie: “You don’t have to be curious about why I’m in Madison.”

Officer: “Okay, all right. Just hang tight, ma’am, for me, and I’ll be right back, all right?”

“When you get pulled over for driving Black in Madison.. Why are you in Madison??? What did I do officer. Roll your windows Down.. SmDH,” Cromartie wrote in a caption in the first post.

“FYI I was pulled over for no reason, just to ask me to roll my windows, and why am I in Madison. Like how you don’t know I live here. What am I doing in Madison is freaking 11:30a.m,” Cromartie continued in the caption on the second post.

Terricka and Antonio Cromartie have been married since 2010.
