The Reds' Deion Sanders was arrested on misdemeanor charges after Monday night's game at Riverfront Stadium when a security guard alleged that Sanders tried to leave on his motor scooter through a pedestrian gate and dragged the police officer on the ground for about 15 feet. The guard suffered minor injuries.
Sanders, who posted bail and started in center field Tuesday night, claimed the guard instigated the incident, which resulted in charges of resisting arrest and failing to provide a driver's license. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. A pretrial hearing was set for Sept. 13. Police have not decided whether to add an assault charge.
