While at a Dallas courthouse covering the messy divorce case between Deion and Pilar Sanders, a man beat the crap out of his wife -- outside of the courthouse, in full view of dozens of people, law enforcement officers and the TV news camera. That donkey is 30-year-old Patrick Antuan Knox (he turns 31 on Sunday). According to witnesses, Patrick beat his wife of 10 years, Shenekque Nash-Knox, then pushed her down to the ground by pulling her hair; once she was down on the ground he kicked her at least seven times. The couple was at the courthouse because Shenekque is accused of a car burglary trial. Her attorney said he believes Patrick, who was just released from jail, attacked her because he thought Shenekque was going to implicate him in the crime and wanted to silence her. Patrick was arrested and charged with assault on a family member, aggravated assault and retaliation. Shenekque was taken to the hospital. Craziness.
