McKINNEY, Texas (AP) -- The legal stakes have been raised in the ongoing divorce between Deion Sanders and his estranged wife with a new criminal charge against the Pro Football Hall of Famer.
Police in Sanders' hometown of Prosper, north of Dallas, have filed a new complaint with the Collin County District Attorney's Office accusing Sanders of criminal mischief. The complaint only says that the charge results from the department's ongoing investigation of a scuffle between Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, at their palatial Prosper home.
No arrest has been made relating to the new complaint. Criminal mischief is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000.
