Deion Sanders accuses estranged wife of assault, to press charges

 The estranged wife of former football star Deion Sanders was arrested on domestic violence-related charges Monday night, hours after Sanders sent a series of bizarre tweets saying she assaulted him.

In one of the messages posted on his verified Twitter account, Sanders even posted a picture of what he said were his children filling out complaints to give to the police.

"Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room," the first tweet posted at 6:15 p.m. read. "She's going to jail n I'm pressing charges!"

Two minutes later, Sanders tweeted again.

"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!" it said.

    Sully Disney/Eisner? That would be like a lifelong democrat being sullied into a republican. (Ronnie Raygun) As if above reproach, no less.

    @banasy. Relax. It was just a kids movie, not a real priest. Still, some parents like to protect their kids from make-believe badness while others don't. To each his own children, if any left.
