Former Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman arrested for burglary domestic violence
SEATTLE (AP) — Former Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers star Richard Sherman was booked into a jail in Seattle on Wednesday morning, accused of “Burglary Domestic Violence.”
The King County Correctional Facility lists Sherman as being booked at 6:08 a.m. Online records say bail was denied, though it was unlikely Sherman would have had a court appearance yet.
The incident is being investigated as a felony. It wasn’t immediately clear if Sherman had an attorney and no other details were immediately available.
Sherman become a Seattle sports legend during seven seasons with Seahawks. The cornerback was a star in their run to a 2014 Super Bowl victory, making a game-saving play to deflect a pass in the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.
He left the Seahawks after the 2017 season and then played three seasons with San Francisco.
The 33-year-old is currently a free agent.
