Pro Football Talk:

Pilar Sanders, the estranged wife of Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, was arrested for assault on Monday after Deion said she attacked him in front of their sons.

The website for the Colin County, Texas, jail says that Pilar Sanders was arrested for assault-family violence, a Class C misdemeanor.

Sanders wrote on Twitter Monday that his wife had attacked him: “Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She’s going to jail n I’m pressing charges!” Sanders wrote.
