PROSPER, Texas (AP) — Former Dallas Cowboys star Deion Sanders has been charged with misdemeanor simple assault in the wake of an altercation with his estranged wife that got her arrested at their mansion in suburban Dallas.
Police issued a statement late Tuesday saying further investigation led to citations against both Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar, who still live together in a palatial home in Prosper.
Police say the charge doesn’t warrant arrest.
A message left with Sanders’ attorney wasn’t immediately returned.
The Hall of Famer tweeted earlier this week that Pilar had attacked him, and he posted a photo of his children filling out police reports. He later removed the photo and posted a message about joy.
Pilar Sanders was arrested Monday on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. She was released Tuesday and said she was innocent.
