The Morning News reports on a Wednesday scuffle that allegedly occurred between Kevin Jefferson, an employee of Prime Prep Academy, and former NFL great Deion Sanders, a co-founder of the school:
“He walked back to the back of the classroom to where I was sitting in a desk,” Jefferson told our Tanya Eiserer this morning. “As he got closer to me, I stood up because he was kind of standing over me and he just kind of kept talking to me and at me and then he just grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground. Some people had to get him off of me.”
Jefferson said he went to the hospital to check on any injuries he might have sustained during the incident. He flagged down police after he left. He told the Dallas Morning News that he has not had any previous confrontations with Sanders.
“I’m going to pursue my options with my attorney,” he said. “I just think it’s unacceptable in a professional environment particularly at a school for that kind of behavior to go on.”
