Fmr. Cowboys star Deion Sanders charged with simple assault
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 said late Tuesday that further investigation led to citations against both Deion and Pilar Sanders, who still live together in Prosper. A police spokesman wouldn't detail the allegations, but says simple assault could be as simple as touching or jerking from a grip.
