New details have emerged in the Richard Sherman arrest from early Wednesday, and they paint a troubling picture of the All-Pro cornerback. According to the 911 caller, Sherman was heavily intoxicated when he got into a heated confrontation with family members in a Seattle suburb in the early morning hours. Audio of the 911 call contained the voice of a woman who would identify herself as Sherman’s wife Ashley Moss.
In addition to reportedly being “drunk and belligerent,” Moss reveals that Sherman had gotten aggressive—and began wrestling with her uncle at one point. But perhaps the most disturbing detail to emerge is: Moss then detailed to the 911 dispatch that Sherman had “sent text messages to people saying he’s going to hang himself.”
This bizarre incident took a turn when Sherman drove to his in-laws’ home in Redmond, Washington, where he would be apprehended with the use of police dogs after trying to break into their residence. The free agent cornerback would be taken to the hospital and later booked at King County Correctional Facility in Seattle.
But yesterday a judge would order that Sherman be released from jail due to him being a “pillar in the community” and for the fact that this was his first arrest. However Sherman was ordered not to have any contact with his father-in-law and must refrain from alcohol. His next hearing is set for 2 pm today where it’ll be established whether charges will be filed. Cray cray doesn’t even begin to describe this incident but we will continue to keep you posted.
