Deion Sanders Accused of Using Steroids
NFL legend Deion Sanders had an angry outburst in a Dallas courtroom on Friday after his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, accused him of using steroids. The former Dallas Cowboys player stood up and shouted "Oh God," before he stormed out of the courtroom. The jury was removed from the courtroom. Deion's attorney, Rick Robertson, said Deion never used steroids and it has no place in this child custody case. Pilar's attorney claimed the issue was relevant, because Deion allegedly had the drugs in a closet that was accessible to the children. The judge ruled the testimony should not be presented to the jury. Shortly afterward, Deion tweeted, "A Lie dont care who tells it. The Truth will prevail. Truth" This divorce has been extremely bitter - Deion accused Pilar of cheating and Pilar accused him of threatening her and beating her. Deion announced his split from Pilar on Facebook in December 2011. http://rumorfix.com/2013/03/deion-sanders-storms-out-of-court-after-pilar-said-he-used-steroids/
