Richard Sherman Arrest, Video Shows NFL Star Violently Beat On Father-In-Law's Door

TMZ 16 July, 2021 - 03:10pm

The footage appears to show the 33-year-old NFL star walking up to Raymond Moss' porch in Redmond, Wash. on Wednesday morning ... before becoming absolutely unglued.

You can see in the clip -- first posted by KIMA -- when Sherman could not get into Moss' home ... he shoved the door with his hands, and then crashed into it with every fiber of his 6-foot-3, 194-pound frame.

When that didn't work ... Sherman stood in front of the door -- and appeared to challenge Moss to come outside and confront him.

"Come through, bitch!" Sherman said, before repeating "Come through!" over and over and over again.

Moss appeared to try to talk to Sherman from behind the locked door ... but Richard responded, "I don't give a f*** about what you're saying! Open the door!"

"That s*** cute from behind the door," Sherman continued. "Come through! That s*** real cute!"

It looks like Sherman then attempted once more to get into the home ... and when the door still wouldn't open, he shoved it violently several more times, before walking away.

As we previously reported, cops ended up arresting Sherman and booking him on a domestic violence burglary charge.

He went on to spend all day Wednesday and most of the day Thursday behind bars ... before a judge released him without bail late Thursday afternoon.

Sherman is due back in court on Friday ... where he could be hit with multiple criminal charges stemming from the incident, including DUI and resisting arrest.

Richard Sherman: I am deeply remorseful, I vow to get the help I need - ProFootballTalk

NBC Sports 16 July, 2021 - 01:40pm

Free agent cornerback Richard Sherman has issued a statement expressing regret following an incident on Tuesday night for which he was arrested both for driving under the influence and for attempting to break into his wife’s parents’ house.

“I am deeply remorseful for my actions on Tuesday night,” Sherman wrote. “I behaved in a manner I am not proud of. I have been dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted. The importance of mental and emotional health is extremely real and I vow to get the help I need. I appreciate all of the people who have reached out in support of me and my family, including our community here in Seattle. I am grateful to have such an amazing wife, family and support system to lean on during this time.”

The 33-year-old Sherman played the last three seasons for the 49ers and seven seasons before that for the Seahawks. He hasn’t signed since becoming a free agent in March.

It is unclear whether Sherman will play in the NFL this season, or if he’ll be taking time away from the game to address those challenges he referenced.

Alcohol has always been the key that opens the Pandora’s box that is our inner demons.

Sherman is a good guy. Hope he gets the help he needs.

This ain’t about football anymore, hopefully he gets his head straightened out. Those videos were frightening

Hope he gets the help he needs.

Go to treatment, find a sponsor, work a program… sobriety can be the biggest gift for a tortured soul. Get clean my brother, you got this.

I wish anyone with similar issues the best, but then again… you reap what you sow.

definitely rooting for Sherm – this whole incident seemed very out of character from the start.

Not a Sherman fan at all but good for him being accountable for his actions. Good luck to him.

Probably tainted because I like him, but I believe he is sincere, and also believe he will get the help he needs.

Tough road ahead, but better for him and those around him.

I’m glad to see that Sherman is taking responsibility for his actions. It’s a breath of fresh air from the usual denials that we hear from others in similar situations.

I wish you good luck, Richard.
