The most recent incident for public consumption was Deion live-tweeting a domestic violence incident where he was alleging on Twitter that Pilar and a friend assault him in front of their two children.

Pilar has now been arrested on an assault charge for allegedly breaking into Deion’s room and attacking him, reports the AP. Pilar was arrested late Monday night (April 23) and booked at the Collin County Jail in a suburb of Dallas, Texas.

The police report did not provide many details, but according to Deion’s Twitter feed his two boys “witnessed their mother and a friend jump [Deion] in [his] room. She’s going to jail and [he’s] pressing charges!”

The Hall of Fame cornerback and former Dallas Cowboy filed for divorce from Pilar back in December. The split has not been amicable.
