After being arrested and charged with five misdemeanors, anti-Trump NFL star Richard Sherman has issued a statement.
Sherman wrote “I am deeply remorseful for my actions on Tuesday night. I behaved in a manner I am not proud of. I have been dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted. The importance of mental and emotional health is extremely real, and I vow to get the help I need. I appreciate all of the people who have reached out in support of me and my family, including our community here in Seattle. I am grateful to have such an amazing wife, family and support system to lean on during this time.”
Disturbing surveillance video obtained by Komo News showed NFL Star Richard Sherman trying to break down the door to enter his in-laws house.
The video shows Sherman attempting to open the locked door, cursing, demanding his father in law “come through” and then trying to break down the door by ramming himself into it. People in the house can be heard screaming.
This incident landed Sherman in jail.
According to the Redmond police, when they confronted him, he was initially amicable but then fought with police when he was told he’d be taken into custody.
Per Yahoo “a police dog was reportedly deployed against Sherman because a Taser was deemed too dangerous due to the chemicals on his clothes and Sherman to be too close for a bean-bag gun, leading to minor cuts on Sherman’s lower leg that were later treated at a hospital. Sherman is also accused of a single-car hit-and-run, with a different 911 caller describing a possibly impaired driver driving through a closed construction zone.”
