Deion Sanders' estranged wife was arrested Monday on suspicion of assault while the former NFL star claimed via Twitter that she had broken into his room and attacked him as their children watched.
"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 tweeted Monday afternoon.
Pilar Sanders was booked into the Collin County (Texas) Jail on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Jail records do not give details on the alleged attack, including whether anyone else had been arrested, and police from the town of Prosper declined to discuss the case Tuesday.
Sanders, a Hall of Fame cornerback who is now an analyst for the NFL Network, filed for divorce from his wife back in December. She sued Sanders for $200 million in March on claims that he and his adult daughter from a previous marriage had posted libelous and slanderous statements about her.
