It's a tense time for "Prime Time."
The son of Pro Football Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders has allegedly gotten himself into serious trouble.
TMZ Sports is reporting that a Dallas high school employee is alleging that Sanders's teenage son brutally attacked him to the point that he needed spinal surgery. Good, lawd. That's outrageous.
In court documents obtained by TMZ, the alleged victim, John Darjean, claims that Sanders's son — who isn't named on the lawsuit — became belligerent when he tried to take the teenager's cell phone for breaking school rules back in a September 2015 incident.
That's when Darjean alleges that Sanders's son beat him to the point of hospitalization, in which he would later need a spinal surgery. The insurance company actually wants Deion and his ex-wife, Pilar, to be on the hook to reimburse the full $26,000 it had to cough up to Darjean because it claims that the parents let their son's reckless behavior get out of control.
Wow. We're speechless.
If Deion's kid did indeed dish out this kind of pain, his parents need to foot any bill that comes their way and their son should face possible jail time.
In fairness, though, let's see if there's more to this story than we know. Disturbing report to say the least for now.
