SEATTLE, Wash. – Free agent cornerback Richard Sherman was reportedly booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility for “Burglary Domestic Violence” on Wednesday, ESPN reports, per King County public records.

Court documents show that a Richard Kevin Sherman was booked at 6:08 a.m. this morning.

Redmond police say they arrested him early Wednesday morning for investigation of domestic violence residential burglary.

At 11:26 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13, Redmond police were notified by the King County Sheriff’s Office that Sherman was possibly traveling to Redmond. At approximately 1:49 a.m. on Wednesday, July 14, Redmond police officers were called to a residence for a reported in-progress burglary. Sherman was attempting to force entry into a family member’s home.

Redmond police says the suspect fought with officers while being taken into custody, resulting in a K9 team being deployed to assist in gaining control.

Troopers with the Washington State Patrol are also investigating Sherman for a potential hit-and-run, stating that he is suspected of leaving his damaged vehicle and fleeing on foot to the Redmond residence after striking a cement barrier to an SR 520 off ramp.

A bail amount has not yet been set, but that is not unusual in this case, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Typically, first appearances handled by the King County District Court are held at 2:30 p.m. on the day after someone is booked. Since Sherman was booked at 6:08 a.m. Wednesday, his first appearance will likely be July 15 at 2:30 p.m.

In a statement to the Seattle Times, Sherman’s wife, Ashley Moss, said that her husband “didn’t harm anybody.”

“My kids were not harmed in the incident,” she added. “He’s a good person and this is not his character. We’re doing all right, just trying to get him out. I want people to know no one was injured.”

Sherman was drafted by the Seahawks in 2011. He led the NFL in interceptions in 2013, when he also helped the Seahawks win their first Super Bowl. More recently, Sherman played for the San Francisco 49ers. He is now a free agent.
