Deion Sanders’ son accused of brutally beating high school employee
Deion Sanders’ teenage son has been accused of brutally beating a high school employee so badly that the man needed emergency spinal surgery.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, John Darjean says he tried to confiscate the younger Sanders’ phone in September 2015 after the student was breaking school rules by using it on campus during school hours. Darjean says Sanders refused to turn over the phone and instead violently attacked him.
Darjean was transported to a local hospital, where he says he later had to undergo spinal surgery.
TMZ also reports that the insurance company that was responsible for paying Darjean’s workers compensation while he was recovering from his injuries is suing Deion and his ex-wife Pilar for $26,000, claiming the couple knew of their son’s history of reckless behavior and did nothing. Deion and Pilar finalized their divorce in 2013 after some ugly court battles, and Deion celebrated with these tweets at the time.
One of Sanders’ other sons, Deion Jr., is heading into his senior season as a defensive back at SMU.
