Former NFL’er Deion Sanders is in hot water again, and this time it doesn’t involve his ex-wife, Pilar. Reportedly, this week, a serious physical altercation went down at Deion’s school, Prime Prep Academy. Here’s what allegedly went down. According to the Dallas Morning News, local police are investigating an alleged fight that took place on Wednesday afternoon between Sanders and an employee at Prime Prep, named Kevin Jefferson. The employee told the Morning News:
He walked back to the back of the classroom to where I was sitting in a desk. As he got closer to me, I stood up because he was kind of standing over me and he just kind of kept talking to me and at me and then he just grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground. Some people had to get him off of me. I’m going to pursue my options with my attorney. I just think it’s unacceptable in a professional environment particularly at a school for that kind of behavior to go on.
Jefferson also said he went to the hospital for tests, and then informed the police of the situation. Meanwhile, Deion has shared his side of the story, denying the incident, on twitter. He wrote:
Its alot of ignorance & lies circulating in DFW right now. Please know I stand for kids,teachers & Parents whom trusted me with their child. I won’t sit&witness my PrimePrep kids receive 2nds when they deserve the BEST EDUCATION!There was NO assault but a definite confrontation. The Person claiming assault is a fake administrator whom does absolutely nothing to help the school,kids or teachers reach our goals. Truth..Parents,Kids,Teachers and whomever a few times in life you will have to take a stand for whats RIGHT! Truth
All Media please ask ANY Student or Teacher at PrimePrep Dallas campus grades 6-12 who I am and what im about! Then report that Live. Truth
No word on yet what may have motivated the alleged fight between the two, but what are your thoughts?
