Police: Anti-Trump NFL Player taken down by K9 in Fight Before Arrest

According to police, Anti-Trump NFL Player Richard Sherman was taken down by a K9 before his arrest.

Sherman has been vocal about his feelings against Trump, tweeting multiple times against him while Trump was President.

TMZ reported:

Sherman was taken down by a police K9 after trying to break into a family member’s home in Redmond, WA before his arrest on Wednesday morning … this according to law enforcement.

A Redmond Police Department spokesperson tells TMZ Sports the incident all went down at 2 AM.

According to the spokesperson, officers showed up to a residence in the Redmond area after receiving a call from the occupants inside the home who claimed a family member who did not live there was trying to break in.

Cops say when they arrived on scene, they identified Sherman as the suspect … and claim he became uncooperative and combative during questioning.

Sherman allegedly fought with cops so much … we’re told a K9 was deployed to take down the NFL player and help bring him into custody.

Cops say he was taken to the hospital to be looked at for possible injuries before he was eventually booked at the county jail.

They added in an update “Cops just held a meeting with reporters to shed more light on the incident … and they say the altercation all went down at the home of Sherman’s in-laws. Officials did not, however, reveal a possible motive for why they say Sherman was at the residence trying to gain entry … but they noted at least two officers and the NFL player suffered minor injuries during the arrest.”
