Deion Sanders' wife has got into trouble for allegedly attacking him. Pilar Sanders was arrested on domestic violence charges in Dallas, Texas on Monday, April 23. According to the Colin County Jail website, she was charged with a Class C misdemeanor for "assault family violence" offense.
News of Pilar's arrest came just hours after Deion took to his Twitter account to reveal that he's filing a police report against her after she jumped him in front of their two sons. "Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room," he first tweeted. "She's going to jail n I'm pressing charges!"
In a following tweet, the former NFL star wrote, "I'm sad my boys witnessed this mess but I warned the police department here that she was gone try n harm me and my boys. This is on my mama!" He then posted a photo of him filing out the police report. In the caption, he noted, "Thank God for this platform to issue the Truth."
Shortly after Pilar was taken into police custody, Deion posted a new message on his account. "God is faithful! Thank u all for your prayers,support n Love," so the 44-year-old tweeted. "A testimony only comes after a test. Truth."
Deion filed for divorce from Pilar in December 2011. In a statement about the split, he said, "Pilar and I have decided to end our marriage and move on to the next phase of our individual lives with mutual respect. We are friends and our top priority has and will continue to be the well-being of our children."
Pilar then fought back with her divorce filing. In her papers, she claimed that the former NFL star "has been guilty of unkind, uncaring, insensitive, cruel and unusual treatment of [Pilar] ... as well as physical, mental and emotional abuse of [Pilar] and the parties' children." Deion later fought back, saying that his wife for the past 12 years tried to extort money from him.
