FORMER Seattle Seahawks player Richard Sherman was arrested for “burglary domestic violence” after his wife, Ashley Moss, called 911 when he allegedly tried to break into his in-law’s home.
During the 911 call, which was obtained by KIRO in Seattle, Moss begged for police assistance.
She told the dispatcher that Sherman was “threatening to kill himself” and “has sent text messages to people saying he’s going to hang himself.”
The NFL star has been booked on charges of burglary domestic violence, resisting arrest, and malicious mischief, Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe said in a Wednesday press conference.
Sherman, who is currently a free agent, is also being investigated over a single-car “DUI hit and run” that happened shortly before.
The athlete was denied bail and is currently being held at the King County jail and no release date has been posted as of yet.
A charge of “burglary domestic violence” tends to refer to someone entering or refusing to leave a house or dwelling within the context of a domestic dispute, according to ProFootballTalk.
It is a special charge in Seattle and, in first-degree offenses, they are also accused of committing an act of violence or carrying a deadly weapon such as a knife or firearm,” according to domesticviolenceseattle.com.
