Hall of Fame cornerback and NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders is going through a divorce, which he and his family are entitled to deal with privately. But Sanders has decided to deal with it publicly.
Sanders went on Twitter on Monday and wrote that his estranged wife had attacked him, and that he had called the police.
“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 wrote. “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!”
Sanders also posted a picture of himself filling out a police report.
After Sanders’ fellow NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp got himself into hot water by saying too much on Twitter (and later on the air), Sanders would be wise to be cautious in his use of Twitter. For the sake of his sons, here’s hoping that he and his wife have no more encounters that lead to police intervention.
