Deion Sanders
shares some of the blame for the fight with his estranged wife Pilar Sanders ... according to police who have cited the NFL Hall of Famer for assault.

Cops in Prosper, Texas investigated the altercation that went down Monday at Deion's home ... and decided to give him a ticket for misdemeanor simple assault.

As TMZ first reported, Pilar was arrested a few hours after the incident ... in which Deion claims she and a friend jumped him. Pilar didn't get off as easy as Deion -- she was arrested and posed for a mug shot ... albeit a pretty glamorous one.

Pilar was booked for a misdemeanor ... "assault family violence."

A police spokesman said Deion's ticket carries a fine of up to $500.

Why is it that a woman can yell, kick, bite, punch, and scratch a guy ALL day long....but as soon as he thumps her in self defense the law CRASHES down on the man? Seriously, what is a man supposed to do when a woman is crazy?!

Neither of them should have been living together, if they could not get along, for the sake of their children, they had NO BUSINESS LIVING TOGETHER. Kids come first!!! Always!

You just don't do this, especially in front of your children!!
Not cool of either of them to put their children in the middle like that and have them witness such aggression between their parents. Frightening for them, confusing for them, and not role modeling behavior for them.

Children are the priority!!

Two selfish immature adults here.

is it any wonder why men don't report domestic abuse? simply defending yourself gets you an assault charge.

He probably blocked her hits therefore he is now charged with assault. Ridiculous!

And THIS, is WHY Deion posted his pics etc etc.

Because although she is a psycho who attacked him, he still gets a ticket for her misconduct.

If I were Deion, I'd fight this ticket b/c we all have a right to defend ourselves without fear of being charged with a crime when being attacked, especially with witnesses.

What crap. I'm SURE all he was trying to do was defend himself from two crazy bitches. Ticketing him for defending himself is bull.

Pilar is just lucky this wasn't Florida. He could have Zimmerman'd her ass and called it 'self defense'. Ohhh snap!
