The Seattle Times is reporting that former Seahawk Richard Sherman was released from custody today after waiving a hearing with a judge in King County. The paper’s article said, “Judge Fa’amomoi Masaniai found probable cause that Sherman committed misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor crimes of second degree criminal trespass and third degree malicious mischief, both carrying domestic-violence allegations, in his attempted forced entry into his in-laws’ residence.” The judge also found probable cause that Sherman drove under the influence and resisted arrest.
Sherman was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly threatening his wife and family members and trying to break down the door of his in-law’s house in Redmond. He reportedly became combative with police and was taken down by a K-9 unit. After receiving medical treatment for his bite wound, the 33-year old was booked into the King County Correctional Facility.
KIRO Radio and TV in Seattle obtained the 9-1-1 call and aired it. The caller, identifying herself as Sherman’s wife Ashley, said he was drunk and belligerent and threatening to kill himself.
The judge denied a $10,000 bail request and released Sherman that he promise to appear at court in future hearings. The judge also ordered Sherman have no contact with his father in-law.

The Columbia River from the I-182 bridge in Richland to Chief Joseph Dam in Bridgeport will close at the end of the day Sunday, July 18th. Anglers have until then to harvest two sockeye per person.
