Former Seahawk Sherman arrested

377

Former Seahawk Richard Sherman is in jail today after being arrested for burglary domestic violence last night outside a home in Redmond. The 33-year old free agent cornerback is also reportedly being investigated by the State Patrol for crashing his car into a concrete barrier at a construction site along a highway, continued to drive the car on four flat tires, abandoned the car in a parking lot and went on foot the rest of the way to the residence.

Shortly thereafter, a 9-1-1 caller in Redmond told police that Sherman was allegedly trying to break into a family member’s home where he doesn’t live. He reportedly became combative with police and was taken down by a K-9 unit.

In addition to the possible burglary domestic violence charges, Sherman could face DUI and hit and run charges. He’s being held without bail in the King County Correctional Facility until he will appear before a judge, which could be tomorrow.
