Deion Sanders’ Wife Arrested For Domestic Abuse

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.

In two more tweets that Sanders has since deleted, he wrote that he had previously told the local police he was concerned his wife would “harm me and my boys,” and he linked to a photograph of himself and his sons filling out police reports.

Here’s the since deleted picture. I can understand a divorce getting ugly, but tweeting out a picture of your kids helping get mommy arrested is classless beyond words:

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
