Prime Prep co-founder Deion Sanders issued misdemeanor assault citation
The Dallas Morning News' Tanya Eiserer is reporting that Deion Sanders has been issued a misdemeanor assault citation following his confrontation at Prime Prep three weeks ago.
From Eiserer's report:
Sanders, 46, is accused of assaulting Prime Prep Academy's chief financial officer, Kevin Jefferson, during a meeting at the school's Oak Cliff campus. A Class C misdemeanor assault is punishable only by a fine.
The former football player was issued the citation after Dallas police officials consulted with Dallas County prosecutors about whether to charge him with the more serious offense of Class A misdemeanor. Officials apparently opted to go with the lower level charge because Jefferson did not have serious injuries.
