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.

my buddy's ex-wife brought in $18852 last month. she is making cash on the laptop and got a $3360...00 house. All she did was get lucky and put into action the steps laid out on this web site NuttyRich.com

This POS had the nerve to have his CHILDREN file complaints against Pilar and then tweeted the photos of them. He's as low-life as they come. I guess he thought if he got the first strike, he'd be off the hook. Ha, ha Peeon.

I am a female, so I'm not sexist, but this is what I have to say about this.... Females are always talking about equal rights and being treated the same as males... well, if you want to punch and throw fists at a man, he should be able to defend himself. If a female punches a guy in the face... why can't he defend himself. If he even lifts his arm to block her hand, she can say that he hit her and HE gets arrested. I say this cause it's happened to a friend a mine. He was a great guy who got involved with the wrong broad. She called herself "beating him up" one day so he PUSHED her ass off of him and called the cops... HE GOT ARRESTED for assault because he pushed her. She got NOTHING even though he was bloody from her punching him in the face. WTF is that about. Ladies, you want equality? Don't swing unless you can take it too.

As Charlotte responded I can't believe that a single mom can earn $7771 in 1 month on the computer. If you don't belive, just read this link www.LazyCash27.com

Seriously, one of them has to leave, it is getting to the point where one of them is going to get hurt really bad. Domestic violence has the most potential to be dangerous!!

as I was sayin    

Pilar is simply beautiful and he is well...what about dem Lakers...oh back to my story it's like she is so beautiful she could get a better man and the kids well where is child abuse agencies,has anyone at all called them to intervene in this situation, having the kids demean their mom is mental abuse,kids should not have to go through this. Anytime there is a fight and kids are around is a child abuse case.

Deion!!!! What a shame on you. That goes also for any of you pin heads who beat, argue, slap, and quarrel with a woman. Do you know how many years the Devil and his advocates have tried to publicly humiliate me, trigger me, bait me, due to controversies from my wife? So I can do something STUPID and then they draw their CONCLUSION. See I told you so. It is 30 years now. I have NOT given in to that crap. But I found out that a LOT Brothers fall for this scheme. It does not matter what she says, does, splits, throws, jumps me, NOTHING!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING she does will arouse me to anger. You just DON'T. Simply because you get ALWAYS get the black eye in the END.
