Former Seahawks, 49ers star Richard Sherman booked on domestic violence charge
NFL free agent and former Compton Dominguez star Richard Sherman was booked into a jail in Seattle on Wednesday morning, accused of “burglary domestic violence.”
The King County Correctional Facility lists Sherman as having been booked at 6:08 a.m. Online records say bail was denied, though it was unlikely Sherman would have had a court appearance yet.
The incident is being investigated as a felony. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Sherman had an attorney, and no other details were immediately available.
Sherman become a Seattle sports legend during seven seasons with the Seahawks. The cornerback was a star in their run to a 2014 Super Bowl victory, making a game-saving play to deflect a pass in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers.
He left the Seahawks after the 2017 season and then played three seasons with the 49ers.
The 33-year-old is currently a free agent.
