McKINNEY, Texas (AP) — Police have arrested Deion Sanders’ estranged wife on an assault charge that the Hall of Fame cornerback claims was for breaking into his room and attacking him in front of their children.
Pilar (pee-lar) Sanders was arrested Monday and booked into Collin County Jail on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
Jail records did not give details about the alleged attack or list an attorney for Pilar Sanders. But Deion Sanders tweeted Monday that his children “just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room.”
Prosper police declined to discuss the case Tuesday and records didn’t say if anyone else had been arrested in the alleged attack.
The former Dallas Cowboy filed for divorce in December. He now works as an analyst for the NFL Network.
