In a press release, the Redmond Police Department revealed more details about the arrest, which was allegedly preceded by a one-car hit-and-run that is also connected to Sherman. Via the Seattle Times:

“At 11:26 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13, Redmond Police were notified by the King County Sheriff’s Office that Sherman was possibly traveling to Redmond. At approximately 1:49 a.m. on Wednesday, July 14, Redmond police officers were called to a residence for a reported in-progress burglary. Sherman was attempting to force entry into a family member’s home.

“Officers arrived and located Sherman outside the home. The suspect fought with officers while being taken into custody, resulting in a Redmond K9 team being deployed to assist in gaining control.

“Troopers with the Washington State Patrol were also on-scene investigating a hit and run incident. The individual is suspected of leaving his severely damaged vehicle and fleeing on foot after striking a cement barrier to an SR 520 off-ramp prior to him arriving at the residence.”

The Seattle Times spoke with a Washington State Trooper about the alleged hit-and-run, which is also being investigated as a DUI.

The State Patrol responded to a one car collision on eastbound Highway 520 near the 148th Avenue Northeast exit around 1 a.m., said Trooper Rick Johnson. The vehicle, which had crashed into a jersey barrier, had left the scene by the time troopers arrived but it was found disabled or abandoned off the exit, Johnson said.

Troopers ran the license plate, which led them to an address in Redmond, where they assisted Redmond police in placing a man into custody, he said. Troopers observed indications of possible impairment and obtained a warrant for a blood draw, said Johnson.

Sherman has yet to be charged with a crime. Once the prosecutor's office receives the case, he'll be due to appear in court on Thursday afternoon, when a judge will make a determination on probable cause for an arrest and set bail if necessary. 

A spokesman for the Redmond Police clarified that Sherman was arrested on suspicion of "domestic violence" because the parties involved are related, not because anyone was injured. 

“At this time we’re going to make no statements, except he didn’t harm anybody,” Moss said. “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.”

The NFL Players Association also released a statement about Sherman's arrest. Sherman has served on the NFLPA Executive Committee since 2016, and was last reelected in 2020.

Richard Sherman was ‘suicidal’ before crash, arrest, according to 911 calls from family

KIRO Seattle 15 July, 2021 - 01:51am

Audio of the 911 call was first reported by KIRO Radio.

Family members could be heard telling dispatchers Sherman was suicidal Tuesday night, drinking heavily and acting “belligerent.”

Sherman was jailed without bail on Wednesday after police said he crashed his car in an active highway construction site on state Route 520 after driving through a closed lane, left the accident scene, tried to break into the home of his in-laws and fought police when they tried to apprehend him.

According to investigators, the first 911 call came after 1 a.m. Wednesday from a construction worker in Redmond on state Route 520 near the 148th Street exit, reporting Sherman was driving his car through a closed lane.

On Wednesday evening, Trooper Rick Johnson tweeted photos of the car involved in the crash.

Troopers found Sherman’s car parked in a nearby lot with severe damage to the driver’s side and a tire missing. Investigators believe Sherman walked 3 miles to the home, where his mother, father and in-laws live. A 911 call from that residence reported Sherman tried to break down the door.

“There was verbal altercation between the occupants of the residence and Mr. Sherman prior to the arrival of the police,” said Capt. Ron Mead with the Washington State Patrol.

Police said Sherman was heard joking with arriving officers at first, but he fought with them when they told him he was under arrest. A police dog was released, and Sherman was treated for bite wounds after he was handcuffed.

About an hour before Sherman’s arrest, his wife Ashley Sherman called from their Maple Valley home, saying he was drunk, belligerent and suicidal.

Ashley Sherman and her uncle are heard urgently asking for police help, saying Richard Sherman was threatening to hurt himself.

“He’s trying to leave now. In the house, he’s being aggressive,” said Ashley Sherman to dispatchers. “He’s wrestling with my uncle. He’s threatening to kill himself. He sent text messages to friends saying he was going to hang himself.”

In the recordings, Ashley Sherman is heard urging her husband not to leave, telling dispatchers he was a danger to himself.

It was then that she asked dispatchers to intercept Richard Sherman’s car before he got to Redmond.

Later, a man described as Ashley Sherman’s uncle called 911, telling police Richard Sherman cut his wife’s car off in traffic as she was following him in her car.

“The wife is trying to leave,” he said in the 911 recording. “He’s following her. He’s intoxicated. He’s driving, and I’m following them to make sure she’s safe.”

He also told dispatchers that Richard Sherman was making threats of violence to his wife.

“He told her if the kids aren’t in the car, he was going to hurt her,” the uncle said.

Sherman is expected to face a King County judge on Thursday.
