Police seek new charge against Deion Sanders

Police are seeking a new criminal charge against Deion Sanders in the case related to a scuffle last month between the Pro Football Hall of Famer and his wife.

Investigators with the Police Department in Sanders’ hometown of Prosper, north of Dallas, have asked the Collin County District Attorney’s Office to review their request for a criminal mischief charge against the ex-NFL star. The charge is a misdemeanor. A spokeswoman for the district attorney did not return a phone message.

The criminal complaint that police filed with prosecutors says their recommendation for the charge results from the department’s ongoing investigation of an April 23 scuffle between Deion and Pilar Sanders at their palatial Prosper home.

Both Deion and Pilar Sanders already face simple assault charges, also misdemeanors.

A Prosper police officer who responded to the disturbance call at the Sanders home along with another officer testified Thursday during a court hearing in the divorce case. Officer John Gardner said a cellphone belonging to a friend of Pilar Sanders was found smashed outside the house and that Deion Sanders admitted to throwing the phone.
