Deion Sanders Accused Of Choking Prep School Employee
Well ladies, we have bad news and good news. The bad news is that Deion Sanders is making negative headlines yet again. The good news is that his latest scandal does not involve his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders. According to Dallas Morning News, yesterday an altercation occurred at Deion’s educational institute, Prim Prep School, between him and an employee named Kevin Jefferson.
The circumstances surround what led to the altercation are not 100% clear, but reports suggest that Deion was unhappy about the grades of some of his student athletes. Kevin accuses Deion of choking him after they got into a verbal disagreement during a faculty meeting.
“He was a little upset and a little emotional. 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.”
Kevin says that he immediately spoke to police and went to the hospital to treat any injuries he sustained during the incident. He also claims that prior to this isolated altercation, he has never had any other confrontations with Deion. Deion has since taken to Twitter to defend himself against the allegations.
Deion also spoke to WFAA-TV’s Brett Shipp about the incident.
“Mr. Jefferson was not beat down. He was not beat up. He was not hit. He was none of that. Mr. Jefferson and I got into a confrontation about the welfare of these kids. And we’ll get into another one. Until you start taking care of these kids, I’ll going to be on a rampage. Until we start serving these kids in Dallas like the kids are served in Fort Worth, and better, I’m going to be on the same rampage, because the teachers are frustrated. We’re frustrated,” Deion said during a phone interview.
Well, if nothing else, we certainly smell a lawsuit brewing.
