Mar 3rd, 2012 Dallas TX – Police are pushing for a second charge against Deion Sanders for a domestic dispute that occurred between himself and his estranged wife last month.
Police officials along with the Collin County District Attorney’s office are pushing for misdemeanor criminal mischief against the 44-year-old ex-football star.
Sanders told the police the following about the incident:
Pilar, and her friend Diana Boswell attacked him in the bedroom of the Prosper mansion that the divorcing couple still shares.
Originally, Pilar was arrested for suspicion of misdemeanor family assault. Upon further investigation charges for simple assault were waged against Sanders and Boswell.
The new charges against Sanders are apparently in connection with his attempt to destroy a cell phone with which Boswell had recorded the incident.
Peter Schulte, Pilar’s attorney said:
“We believe that he destroyed the property of another to conceal the evidence,”
He also added that the phone’s memory card was recovered and turned over to authorities for further investigation.
