Deion Sanders live tweets domestic dispute with estranged wife Pilar
On Monday (April 23), Sanders tweeted:
Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She's going to jail n I'm pressing charges!-- DeionSanders (@DeionSanders) April 23, 2012
That was soon followed by another:
I'm sad my boys witnessed this mess but I warned the police department here that she was gone try n harm me and my boys. This is on my mama!-- DeionSanders (@DeionSanders) April 23, 2012
And, finally, by a photo of himself and two of his children allegedly filling out police reports about the incident.
Whilte some of Sanders' fans were sympathetic, many were astounded that he would take the time to tweet a private family incident while the police were apparently still on scene at his home.
"@DeionSanders live tweeting domestic violence? That's a new one...," writes one.
Another adds, "Deion Sanders should have just given TMZ the story & gave his side at a later date like a real playa. Hes taken a big L on this one."
And another: "Deion Sanders tweeting himself filling out police reports killed off any hope I had left for humanity."
