John Darjean is the high school employee who is currently accusing a teenage student of a brutal attack, but is not just any student. Darjean alleges, the son of NFL hall of famer, Deion Sanders, attacked him, beating him so badly, he had to receive surgery.
According to TMZ, John Darjean claims, Sanders kis was breaking school rules last September by using his cell phone on campus during school hours. When he tried to confiscate the teen’s phone, Sanders allegedly got violent giving Darjean serious injuries. As a result of the brutal attack, John Darjean was rushed to a local hospital where he later needed spinal surgery.
John Darjean’s medical expenses were cover by an insurance company –which is now suing the teens parents. The insurance company thinks Deion Sanders and Pilar Sanders should reimburse them, claiming the parents of the troubled teen, perfectly knew of his history of reckless conduct and never did anything to curb his behavior. The company is suing for $26k.
Sanders who spent time with five different NFL teams, won two Super Bowls during his career. He was named first-team All-Pro nine times at cornerback in addition to receiving All-NFL acclaim by some media outlets as a kick returner in 1992 and as a punt returner in 1998. He was also elected to eight Pro Bowls during his career.
As for his personal life goes, Sanders has been married twice. He has two children –son Deion Sanders Jr. and daughter, Deiondra Sanders –with first wife, Carolyn Chambers; and is the father of three with second wife Pilar Biggers-Sanders: sons Shhilo and Shedeur and daughter, Shelomi.
In 2011 Deion served Pilar Biggers-Sanders with divorce papers. During the divorce battle, Pilar made several accusations of abuse against Sanders, leading Sanders to file a Defamation of Character lawsuit against her. In 2015, Sanders was vindicated when the court awarded him a $2.2 million judgment against his ex-wife in the case. Sanders was awarded primary custody of all three children.
