According to police reports, Cruz assaulted Burke after she broke off their nine-year relationship. He’s accused of choking his ex-girlfriend unconscious and biting her.
When Cruz was released without bail on May 2, he reportedly smirked while telling photographers, “I hope I look good, guys.”
Meghan Burke’s mom said Cruz is a violent, manipulative nutcase. “He’s insane, he’s a sociopath, he’s a real manipulator,” Burke’s mom told the NY Daily News. “Ever since she met him, we have tried too hard to counsel her against him. He’s not a good guy. This has been an ongoing thing…She’s been trying to stay away from him over the past year.”
