In the world of the NFL, stories of domestic violence are all too common, sadly. In almost every case, the violence is male-on-female. It’s rare that you hear about an instance of a wife or girlfriend beating her male companion. This is one of those stories.
Retired cornerback Deion Sanders was attacked by his estranged wife yesterday. Pilar Sanders is her name and she was arrested for her actions. According to reports, she showed up at Deion’s home in Texas and assaulted him in front of their children. She has been charged with assault-family violence, a Class C misdemeanor.
Deion tweeted about the entire thing. (Of course he did.)
He has since deleted some of his tweets, but we have a screen capture of everything for you to see below. It certainly looks like he handled the situation in the best way possible. In one of the photos below, he and his sons can be seen filling out paperwork (presumably police reports). Take a look:
Sanders is still expected to appear on-air this Thursday night, and through the weekend, as part of NFL Network’s coverage of the 2012 NFL Draft.
