*When it comes to Deion and Pilar Sanders, things have gone from bad to worse. Yes, unfortunately, things have gotten even messier between them.
Deion, a former NFL defensive back turned NFL Network analyst, tweeted Monday about an apparent run-in between himself and Pilar, his estranged wife.
“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!”
And go to jail she did (see her mugshot above). According to the Colin County Jail website, Pilar was booked for “assault family violence.” (Maybe what instigated the confrontation were photos of Deion with Tracey Edmonds Sunday night in New York at a performance of Blair Underwood’s “Streetcar Named Desire.”)
Deion & sons filling out police report on Pilar
Anyway, the NFL Hall of Famer later tweeted that he was upset his sons were involved in the incident.
“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 wrote.
He also tweeted aphoto of himself and his sons filling out paperwork, writing that he was “filling out police reports now.” He added: “Thank God for this (Twitter) platform to issue the Truth.”
Although Pilar and Deion are going through a bitter divorce, they are still living together in their suburban Dallas home.
Deion told TMZ that Pilar had been taken to the hospital immediately after the incident — claiming she needed medical treatment, but she is now in police custody.
Deion claims he didn’t harm his estranged wife, and only “defended” himself until he was able to call police.
