Dallas, Texas – Sports analyst and former professional football player Deion Sanders was recently charged with a misdemeanor after an altercation with his estranged wife Pilar Sanders that took place earlier in the week. As reported by Reuters, Sanders has been cited for simple assault, stemming from the domestic dispute for which his estranged wife was arrested and jailed for one night. The charge carries a maximum $500 fine as the penalty in Collin County, Texas.

As noted in the report, Sanders made the claim that he was attacked by Pilar and her friend at his home on Monday. The divorcing couple still share the home in a suburb of Dallas.

Deion and Pilar Sanders were wed in 1999, and once starred in the Oxygen network reality series, “Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love.” Their divorce was filed last year.
