Deion Sanders faces criminal mischief complaint

AP

Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is facing a new complaint of criminal mischief as police continue to investigate an altercation with his ex-wife.

The Associated Press reports that police in the Dallas suburb of Prosper, Texas, filed a new complaint with the Collin County District Attorney’s Office accusing Sanders of criminal mischief. Sanders has not been arrested.

Last week Sanders wrote on Twitter that his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, had attacked him. She was later arrested for assault. Pilar’s lawyer called that incident “a complete setup.”

Deion Sanders was cited for simple assault a day later, and a witness said Deion, not Pilar, appeared to be the aggressor.

Deion and Pilar are fighting for custody of their three children. A lawyer appointed to look out for the interests of the children said they are struggling in school, need counseling and “live in a combat zone.”

  1. This squeaky clean facade Deion had been portraying in recent years is finally fading and revealing the kind of person he really is. Back to egocentric narcissistic jerk he was during his playing day.

  2. Can remember a time when all I wanted as a football fan (other than a championship) was for Deion Sanders to retire and go away. So I’m not a fan. But you guys calling him scumbag, etc., over this have no idea what happened in his house that day. Maybe he was the aggressor, as his wife claims. Or maybe his wife was the aggressor, as Sanders and his children reportedly claim. Doubt he’s an angel, but I’ve seen her on TV enough over the years to doubt her sainthood, too.

    The only person I believe is the children’s attorney, who says they’re living in a combat zone. And since the wife apparently has another well-furnished residence in her own name just up the road, why put the kids through that? They could live in their own residences and let the kids divide time between the two places while the divorce proceedings continue.

  3. I think of your HOF speech. So Deion, as for your behavior – Think not only “WWJD” but “What Would Momma Do”….perhaps your only thinking of what Deion wants to do.

    Now Deb, you know better than to suggest that Pilar move out. That could be construed as abondonment. It’s ridiculous to subject the kids to all this BS, but the reality is, it all comes down to money and who gets what. Unfortunately, that is what this marriage has been reduced to.

    Anybody else see some time on a therapist’s couch in the future of the Sander’s children?

  5. A “witness” reported him as the aggressor? You mean the lady that admitted she was in another room, didn’t see anything that happened, just heard glass break and then Deion shouting at his ex-wife to get out of his house? That “witness”? Right.

  6. As long as all he did was beat his wife like James Harrison did, then there shouldn’t be any problem as far as the NFL goes. Of course if he does something terrible like file for bankruptcy, then they have to get rid of him like what happened to Sapp.

  7. How is this news? This is obviously a slow news day when Deion’s messy divorce becomes an item.

    Seriously, thousands of divorces take place every day and no one cares about them. Why should anyone give a hoot about his?

  8. Upon hearing the news, Dez Bryant said he could no longer try to help Deion Sanders.

  9. He should also face felony theft charges for impersonating a commentator on several TV sports programs.

    Yeah, the reluctance to abandon the house and its assets has occurred to me. Wonder what would happen if, instead of cutting the baby in half, Solomon said one could have the money and the other the children.

  11. word to the wise….the pft censors will block your comments if you are negative to mlb. this will be blocked i am sure. if not, MLB blows!

  12. Reading these posts reminds me of the Pig Ben Bathroom Episode with the he said she said.

    Lets hope we don’t have another drawn out soap opera on PFT. It seems to me that Deion with his twitter posts etc is putting his family business out in the public which is not helping his kids.

  13. he should be charged with impersonating a Hall of Fame Football player…they guy is a joke!

    Yes, but his lawyer would have gotten him acquitted on account of parody being protected speech, as no one watching could possibly have confused him with a real sports commentator.

  15. Bottom line is the children are the victims here and all the media seems focused on is the sensational side of the story.

    Someone needs to sit these 2 parents down and explain that they need to do what’s in the best interest of the children. It’s not about anything else, or rather it shouldn’t be. They need both parents and there’s no reason for them to not be able to resolve this.

    Now I realize Deion feels he has a lot to lose with the $ involved in support, but he has no excuse. He’s done extremely well for himself, he should be GIVING to his ex wife for the sake of the relationship he wants to have with his children.

    Before you jump to conclusions, I recently went through a divorce. I love my children more than my stuff or my money and I backed it up with my actions and it’s paid huge dividends. My children know they’re loved by both of us.

    I hope he does the right thing for his children.
