NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders claims he was assaulted by his estranged wife, even posting a Twitter picture of himself filling out a police report.
The NFL Network analyst told TMZ.com that he was home in Dallas on Monday when Pilar Sanders and someone else began “kicking, biting, and scratching” him in front of his sons.
Pilar Sanders was later arrested on domestic violence-related charges, CNN reported.
In addition to calling the authorities, Sanders took to Twitter to describe the ugly situation.
“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.
Deion tweeted again two minutes later: “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!”
A police car and a fire truck were seen in front of Sanders’ house in suburban Dallas on Monday, TMZ.com reported.
The Twitter-loving former two-sport star tweeted that he was “filling out police reports now! Thank God for this platform to issue the Truth.” He posted an accompanying photo.
According to CNN, Pilar Sanders was booked on suspicion of assault family violence and bond was set at $264.
"My kids, they are scared for their life," Deion Sanders told Dallas TV station KXAS on Monday night. "They just saw two women jump their dad in his own house, in his room, in my room. It's sad."
Sanders filed for divorce from Pilar Sanders, who is his second wife, in December, and their relationship has continued to deteriorate. The couple, who even starred in a reality show together, have been married since 1999.
Pilar Sanders filed a $200 million defamation suit in March after Deion Sanders’ daughter from his previous marriage tweeted that Pilar was a “gold-digging (expletive),” according to reports.
