McKINNEY, Texas (AP) — Police have arrested Deion Sanders' estranged wife on an assault charge that the Hall of Fame cornerback claims was for breaking into his room and attacking him in front of their children.


Pilar (pee-lar) Sanders was arrested Monday and booked into Collin County Jail on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.


Jail records didn't give details about the alleged attack and Prosper police declined to discuss it Tuesday. But Deion Sanders tweeted Monday that his children "just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room."


Deion Sanders filed for divorce in December. His wife's divorce attorney didn't immediately respond to a call seeking comment.


The former Dallas Cowboy is an NFL Network analyst. The couple starred in a 2008 Oxygen network series, "Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love."
