Deion Sanders has been charged with misdemeanor simple assault in the altercation with his estranged wife Pilar Sanders, who was arrested for her role in the incident. A judge also banned Pilar from the couple’s Texas mansion for the next 60 days.
According to nfl.com, Deion will not be arrested as the charge doesn’t warrant arrest. The charge carries a fine of up to $500.
The Hall of Famer tweeted earlier this week that Pilar had attacked him, and posted a photo of his children filling out police reports. He later removed the photo and posted a message about joy.
Pilar, who was charged with misdemeanor assault and held overnight in county jail, was released Tuesday. An emotional Pilar left the Collin County Jail Tuesday morning, accompanied by friends, family, and her lawyer, and told news reporters: “I’m a full-time mom, I’m there for my child and just haven’t been given a fair shake. I will never give up fighting for my children.”
