Update 3:30 p.m. – According to reports, Deion Sanders has been reinstated at Prime Prep Academy.
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Prime Prep Academy has fired co-founder Deion Sanders following an alleged confrontation with a faculty member on Wednesday.
Superintendent Rachel M. King-Sanders released a statement announcing the news on Friday.
"Effective immediately, Deion Sanders is no longer an employee or representative for Prime Prep Academy."
Sanders admitted his involvement as the suspect in the incident to CBS 11, though he denies that any assault occurred.
According to a police report from the event, a faculty member at the school, Kevin Jefferson, stated that Sanders became angry during a faculty meeting, which initiated a confrontation.
Jefferson reported that Sanders then made statements towards him, approached him and grabbed him by the collar, pushing him into the wall. Witnesses were forced to step in and stop the altercation.
Sanders took to Twitter on Thursday to deny the allegations, and again on Friday after the decision was made.
