Although he claims that his estranged wife “kick, bit and scratched him,” misdemeanor assault charges have been filed against Deion Sanders.

On Monday, April 24, the sports great took to Twitter to call out Pilar Sanders and her rumored cousin for “jumping him in front of his kids.”

Pilar was arrested and later released. She has since made a statement proclaiming her innocence, a claim many people may not have believed. According to Texas authorities however, both parties were in the wrong leading to a misdemeanor simple assault charge against Deion Sanders. Sanders will not have to serve jail time for the charge.

In a mug shot taken Monday, Pilar Sanders looked virtually unscathed. Upon further investigation however, her bottom lip did appear to be slightly swollen.

The battle between Pilar and her NFL spouse is turning out to be a bitter divorce drama that’s been escalating over the past few months. In the past, Pilar has had physical altercations with members of Sanders’ family and most recently called out Tracey Edmonds as her husband’s mistress. That said “mistress” was spotted on his arm this past weekend, which may have led to this week’s altercation.
