Deion Sanders charged with misdemeanor simple assault

Deion Sanders’ public divorce has taken a turn for the ugly.

His estranged wife Pilar Sanders was arrested Monday at their mansion in the Dallas suburb of Prosper and now Deion Sanders has been charged with misdemeanor simple assault, according to the Associated Press.

Deion Sanders made a big deal out of the incident earlier this week, taking to his Twitter account to announce she has attacked him. He posted photos of his children filling out police reports. Eventually, he removed the photos.

Pilar Sanders was charged with misdemeanor assault and held overnight in the county jail. She has accused Deion Sanders of cheating on her repeatedly in their marriage. During the divorce process, they are both living in the large mansion with separate living quarters.

On Monday, Deion Sanders tweeted that his kids “witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She's going to jail (and) I'm pressing charges!”

We’ll see where this heads. There is a gag order on the divorce process which probably is a good thing for Deion Sanders as he leads a career with NFL Network. It will be interesting to see if more turmoil spills out in court.
