Deion and Pilar Sanders

Pilar Sanders, the estranged wife of former Dallas Cowboys star Deion Sanders, was arrested on Monday on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Her soon-to-be-ex-husband rehashed the details on Twitter on Monday, tweeting that his children “just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room.” Deion Sanders filed for divorce from Pilar in December, and the couple has been embroiled in a bitter battle of words ever since she claimed he cheated repeatedly while they were married.
