Antonio Cromartie's wife says she was pulled over for 'Driving while Black' in wealthy NJ town (VIDEO)

The wife of New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, Terricka Cromartie, was reportedly pulled over by a policeman in an upper-middle class New Jersey town and took to Instagram Friday morning to express her displeasure about what she claims is racial profiling.

The Jets summer training camp is in nearby Florham Park.

The caption of her post read: "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. 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." 

She also posted another Instagram message, with the caption: "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 is simply just harassing you."

A composed, but visibly frustrated Cromartie captured video from a portion of the traffic stop — after questioning the officer and not getting an answer why she was pulled over. You can watch it below:

At this point, the officer presumably returned to his vehicle, wrote But it is still unclear what the outcome of the traffic stop was, why Cromartie was pulled over or when the stop in the wealthy enclave of Madison took place.

Cromartie said this in a separate video message: "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 OK?"
