Deion To Face Criminal Mischief Charge In Fight

PROSPER (CBSDFW.COM) – Sources told CBS 11 News that police in Prosper filed criminal charges against former Dallas Cowboys star Deion Sanders on Wednesday night, for allegedly trying to destroy evidence related to a domestic disturbance at his home.

Sanders will face a Criminal Mischief charge for allegedly smashing the smartphone of his wife’s friend, who was recording an altercation between Deion and his estranged wife, Pilar, last week. The memory card from that smartphone is in the custody of police, and could be used as evidence in an investigation of the couple, trying to determine just who assaulted who.

Pilar Sanders was charged with a Class C assault after police investigated, but she insists that she was the victim of an assault from Deion.

The Criminal Mischief charge that Deion faces is a Class A misdemeanor, with a possible punishment of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

The couple is expected in court on Thursday for a hearing on protective orders and other matters related to their ongoing divorce.
