Veteran NFL cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested early Wednesday morning on a burglary domestic violence charge, according to jail records.

The 33-year-old free agent was booked at the King County Correctional Facility in Washington state shortly after 6 a.m. for "Burglary Domestic Violence," ESPN first reported. 

According to the spokesperson, police were called at around 2 a.m. after an unidentified person in the residence said an adult male family member was attempting to force his way into a residence where he did not live. Police arrived and struggled with the suspect who reportedly fought with police before being taken into custody. Nobody was injured.

Shortly after news of his arrest broke, ESPN reported that Sherman was also being investigated for a separate incident involving a hit-and-run and damage to state Department of Transportation property. 

According to the report, a vehicle involved in a single-car crash early Wednesday morning was found abandoned but when law enforcement ran the car's registration it came back to Sherman.

His alleged domestic violence case is being investigated as a felony, NBC Sports noted. 

The NFLPA released a statement saying: "We will continue to monitor events closely as more facts are made available to us.’’

Sherman has recently been linked to his former team, the Seattle Seahawks, where he played for seven seasons, and the Dallas Cowboys

"It’s always in the cards. I spend my entire offseason in Seattle. It’s where I live. It’s where my family is. So it’s never out of the cards," he said. "Pete (Carroll) and I have had conversations throughout the offseason. Everything needs to shake out right. They’re still figuring things out, I’m still figuring things out but it’s definitely not out of the cards." 

"Well, the one thing we talk about all the time, we’re always looking, we’re always looking to upgrade and add. There’s no question there, but also the salary cap, what’s in front of us, too, is something that we’re very focused on, too. I think that’s why you saw. I mean, the 11 draft picks was by design."

He continued: "So, we’re always looking, but I definitely love the competition that we have on the back end. It’ll be fun to see how this all sorts out."

A five-time Pro Bowler, Sherman spent the last three seasons with the San Franciso 49ers but missed much of the 2020 season because of a calf strain. He was released in February.

Sherman jailed after incident at in-laws' home

ESPN 14 July, 2021 - 10:17am

Free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman is facing several charges, including one on suspicion of burglary domestic violence, after he was arrested at his wife's parents' residence in Redmond, Washington, early Wednesday.

Redmond Police Department Chief Darrell Lowe said at a news conference Wednesday that Sherman also faces charges on suspicion of resisting arrest and malicious mischief. In addition, Washington State Patrol Capt. Ron Mead said at the news conference that his department is also ready to refer Sherman to prosecutors for possible misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run charges related to a separate incident Wednesday.

Sherman suffered minor lacerations to his lower leg and ankle and was treated at a local hospital as a result of contact from a police dog, which was used in his apprehension, Lowe said. An officer at the scene also received minor injuries, he said.

Sherman was booked at 6:08 a.m. PT Wednesday at the King County Correctional Facility in Seattle. Records state he was denied bail, but a spokesman for the Redmond Police Department told ESPN that is standard procedure for suspects of domestic violence until they can appear before a judge. Sherman's hearing before a judge will not take place until Thursday afternoon. The judge will determine if there was probable cause for an arrest and also set bail.

The domestic violence component of the charge Sherman faces, which is a felony, is due to his relation to the occupants of the residence, and the malicious mischief charge is in relation to the damage he allegedly did to their front door, Lowe said. No one at the residence suffered injuries and Sherman did not gain entry into the residence, Lowe said.

Redmond police received a 911 call at approximately 1:49 a.m. ET from one of the residents of the home, at which at least four adults were present, saying that Sherman was trying to gain entrance. Lowe said he was unsure if children were present.

Lowe said that the Washington State Patrol received a 911 call at approximately 1:26 a.m. PT about a possibly impaired driver after Sherman allegedly drove his SUV into a closed construction zone. The call was made by a worker in the construction zone, Mead said, noting "we're very fortunate there were no injuries." Police responded and found the vehicle, which had "significant" damage on the driver's side as a result from contact with a barrier, in a nearby parking lot. They ran the plates on the vehicle and determined it was registered to Sherman.

In their efforts to try to find Sherman, the Washington State Patrol was alerted to the incident called into Redmond police and went to that location and assisted in the arrest. Lowe said the situation between Sherman and police turned after he was informed they had probable cause to place him under arrest. At that point, he began to walk away and increased his pace, at which time the K-9 unit was deployed to aid in the arrest.

The Washington State Patrol received a blood search warrant and took a sample from Sherman, Mead said. Those results are still pending. Lowe said that police could smell an "odor of intoxicant emitting from [Sherman's] breath."

"At this time we're going to make no statements, except he didn't harm anybody," Sherman's wife, Ashley Moss, told The Seattle Times. "My kids were not harmed in the incident. He's a good person and this is not his character. We're doing all right, just trying to get him out. I want people to know no one was injured."

Sherman, 33, completed his third season with the San Francisco 49ers in 2020 after spending the first seven seasons of his career with the Seattle Seahawks.

The NFL said Wednesday that it "investigates any incident involving law enforcement and if there is a violation of the personal conduct policy the player would be facing discipline."

Sherman also is a vice president of the NFL Players Association's executive committee.

"We were made aware of an arrest last night of one of our player leaders for an alleged domestic violence incident and have activated our domestic violence crisis protocol for the protection and support of everyone involved," the NFLPA said in a statement. "We will continue to monitor events closely as more facts are made available to us."

Sherman has been selected to five Pro Bowls and is a three-time first-team All-Pro in his 10 NFL seasons.
