Although he admits there was a physical confrontation, Deion Sanders told TMZ that he did not “choke slam” an employee at the school he co-founded.
Kevin Jefferson made the allegations of violence against Sanders that Dallas police are currently investigating. Jefferson is the CFO of Prime Prep Academy, a charter school co-founded by Sanders last year.
Jefferson claims that Sanders lost it once he learned that some of the school’s student athletes were not doing very well in their classes.
According to Jefferson, Sanders was “upset and a little emotional” and then “grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground.”
But Sanders is singing a different tune as he told TMZ, “We locked up with one another … but he was not physically assaulted.” He adds, “He’s looking for a pay day. I did nothing to that gentleman that warranted an assault.”
Sanders later tweeted, “The person claiming assault is a fake administrator whom does absolutely nothing to help the school, kids or teachers reach our goals. Truth.”
He added, “I won’t sit & witness my PrimePrep kids receive 2nds when they deserve the BEST EDUCATION!”
Deion says he’ll cooperate fully with the investigation but as of now he’s not been contacted by police.
Hmm, wonder what his ex-wife, Pilar, has to say about this since she claimed he beat her.
