PROSPER — Former Dallas Cowboys player Deion Sanders said he called police to his residence in Prosper Monday afternoon to deal with a domestic dispute.

A series of brief messages posted to Sanders' official Twitter account claimed that his children "just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. He added: "She's going to jail n I'm pressing charges!"

The Collin County Jail Web site listed Pilar Michelle Sanders as an inmate on Monday evening, being held on a charge of assault family violence, a Class C misdemeanor. Bond was set at $264, but the Web site said she was being held at the request of another agency.

Deion Sanders linked to a photo that purports to show him filling out police reports with two children.

"It's sad my boys witnessed this mess, but I warned the police department here that she was gone [sic] try n harm me and my boys," according to another of the tweets from Sanders' account.

In December the NFL Hall of Famer released a statement to TMZ saying that he and Pilar were going to get a divorce after 12 years of marriage.

The couple has three children. Sanders also has two children from a previous marriage.
