On Wednesday morning, it was announced that NFL veteran cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested for burglary domestic violence in King County, Washington.
According to a report from ESPN, a 911 call came in around 2 a.m. PT on Wednesday from an area resident. The person calling stated that a male family member who didn’t live at the residence was attempting to force his way into the home.
It was also announced this morning that Sherman was denied bail. Although this is already a really messy situation, it appears things could take a turn for the worse.
Washington State Police are reportedly investigating Sherman in connection to a hit-and-run, and damage to state Department of Transportation property. State police said that a single-car incident occurred where a car struck a concrete barrier.
The registration on that vehicle was run and it came back to Sherman.
The driver apparently was able to drive the vehicle off the exit and abandoned it in a nearby parking lot. The registration was run, and it came back to Richard Sherman. https://t.co/WvJgxn9OfX

The NFLPA released a statement on this situation since Sherman is vice president of the executive committee.
“We were made aware of an arrest last night of one of our player leaders for an alleged domestic violence incident and have activated our domestic violence crisis protocol for the protection and support of everyone involved. We will continue to monitor events closely as more facts are made available to us,” the NFLPA said.
Sherman is currently the most notable free agent available. We’d imagine this situation will affect his market.
