Deion Accused Of Threatening Witness Outside Courthouse
McKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – A second day of testimony is underway in divorce proceedings between Deion Sanders and his wife Pilar.
Testimony began with allegations that the NFL Hall of Famer and Former Dallas Cowboy threatened a witness this morning.
Lisa Thomas is a piano teacher who is scheduled to testify that she was in the Sanders Prosper mansion on April 23rd and that Deion was the aggressor during a fight with his estranged wife.
Thomas testified that Deion threatened her and said, “I’m gonna get you” when the two came face to face outside the courtroom this morning.
Thomas told a judge she interpreted the words as a threat and testified quote, “I was scared I came in here and I was afraid.”
Sanders’ attorneys denied Deion made the statements. They claim he said, “I can’t believe they are still going to call him today.”
Pilar Sanders’ attorney accused Deion of tampering with a witness and is asking the judge to take action.
More witnesses are expected to testify today about the ongoing divorce with the couple each seeking protective orders and sole custody of their 3 children ages, 8, 10, and 12.
Among those expected to take the stand today is Deion Sanders’ first wife, who told CBS 11 News before entering the courtroom that he was a good husband and father.
