It has been an awful week for Richard Sherman and his family. Sherman was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly threatening suicide and a series of events involving a crashed car into a construction site, hit-and-run and resisting arrest.
On Thursday, Sherman was released without bail from King County Correctional Facility in Washington after being charged with three gross misdemeanors and two misdemeanors: reckless endangerment of roadway workers, criminal trespass with a domestic violence designation, malicious mischief, DUI and resisting arrest.
Police detailed the alleged events that occurred on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, which you can find here. There are 911 calls from Sherman’s wife, Ashley Moss, who said Sherman had been drinking. At some point, he allegedly got into his vehicle, crashed it into a highway construction site and made his way on foot towards his in-laws house, where he was arrested and a K9 was employed.
Sherman posted the following apology on social media, saying he is “deeply remorseful” for his actions and that his struggles with mental health are not an excuse. He said he vows to “get the help I need.”
