NFL free agent cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested this morning for “burglary domestic violence,” according to King County (Wash.) records.
Details are scarce right now, but Sherman did have bail denied. NBC Sports Northwest’s Joe Fann reports that the alleged crime is being investigated as a felony.
Sherman, who spent the last three years with the San Francisco 49ers, is still unsigned. However, his NFL future might be the least of his concerns right about now.
Free-agent CB Richard Sherman was booked at 6:08 this am at the Seattle Correctional Facility for “Burglary Domestic Violence”, per King County public records. Sherman also was denied bail.
