Pilar Sanders Arrested For Assaulting Deion In Front of Children
April 24, 2012
Pilar Sanders, the estranged wife of Deion Sanders, was arrested for assaulting her husband with a friend of hers in front of the couple’s children on Monday.
Sanders was arrested for “assault family violence,” according to the Colin County Jail website. The pair has been involved in a bitter divorce process, including Pilar Sanders levying cheating allegations against Deion Sanders, but it took a seriously ugly turn on Monday.
That assault came to light after Deion Sanders began live tweeting the incident.
Sanders tweeted, “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.”
He followed up by saying, “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 also included a picture of Sanders and his children filing police reports about the assault allegations.
Pilar Sanders was taken to the hospital after the incident, according to TMZ, but is now in police custody.
This is just the latest incident in the battle between the couple. Sanders filed a $200 million lawsuit against her estranged husband in March for libelous and slanderous statements posted about her. It in part refers to Sanders’ daughter calling her “the number one gold digger of the year.”
