Former NFL cornerback and current NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders is in the middle of a messy divorce that just got messier.
According to TMZ, Sanders' estranged wife Pilar and a friend jumped Sanders in his Dallas, Texas home, "kicking, biting, and scratching" him until he was able to call police. Not one to miss a social media opportunity, apparently, Sanders tweeted a photo of himself and his children while he filled out a police report and included, "Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She's going to jail n I'm pressing charges!"
Pilar Sanders first went to the hospital claiming she needed treatment, but was later arrested by police for assault and family violence.
