In his first public comments since being arrested early Wednesday in Redmond, Washington, Richard Sherman said he is "deeply remorseful" for his actions. 

"I have been dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted," he wrote Friday in a statement posted on social media. "The importance of mental and emotional health is extremely real and I vow to get the help I need."

Sherman, 33, pleaded not guilty Friday to five charges following an incident at his in-law's home in Redmond, a suburb of Seattle: misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor crimes of second degree criminal trespass and third degree malicious mischief (with domestic violence designations), DUI, reckless endangerment of roadway workers (added Friday) and resisting arrest.

Judge Fa’amomoi Masaniai did not find probable cause for a felony burglary domestic violence charge.

In 911 calls obtained by USA TODAY Sports, Sherman's wife, Ashley Moss, said Sherman was trying to force entry into her parents' home. Per officer narratives obtained by USA TODAY Sports, police arrested Sherman with assistance of a K-9 unit. 

"He’s trying to leave now. He’s being aggressive. He’s wrestling with my uncle," Moss told the dispatcher. "He’s threatening to kill himself. He’s sent text messages to people saying he’s going to hang himself."

Moss said Sherman had no weapons and asked police not to shoot him when they arrived.

"He’s said that if the police show up, he’ll try to fight them," she said.

Moss said that Sherman had drank two bottles of hard liquor and was trying to leave in his car, but she had shut off the gate.

John Lynch, general manager of the San Francisco 49ers — where Sherman spent the last three seasons before becoming a free agent this offseason — said Thursday "we'll support (the Sherman family) any way we can." 

"I appreciate all of the people who have reached out in support of me and my family, including our community here in Seattle," Sherman wrote in his statement. "I am grateful to have such an amazing wife, family and support system to lean on during this time."
