Deion & Pilar Sanders’ Domestic Dispute

Though he hit her with divorce papers in September of 2011, the dissolution of the union between Deion and Pilar reached its climax after a domestic disturbance on April 23, 2012. According to the Associated Press, both were charged with misdemeanor simple assault, with both seeking protective orders against each other. Deion, 45, was the only one to receive court protection. He was allowed to stay in their Texas home, while his estranged wife was ordered to stay at least 500 yards away from the residence.
On the night of the incident, Deion was in a kitchen area when Pilar, 38, began kicking the kitchen door connected to their bedroom. She apparently then began to slap Deion, which prompted him to grab her by the waist and carry her out of the room. She sustained minor injuries and was jailed for a night.
