There have been more developments following the arrest of NFL star cornerback Richard Sherman earlier this week.
As of today, Sherman is facing 5 misdemeanor charges, including 2 domestic violence counts and resisting arrest.
Sherman was arrested on Wednesday after police said he crashed his car into a construction barrier, abandoned the vehicle, and tried to forcefully enter his in-law’s home by breaking down the door with his shoulder.
He also threatened to take his own life.
After needing help from a police dog, Sherman was taken into custody.
Sherman pleaded not guilty to all 5 charges Friday afternoon.
Earlier today, Sherman released this statement on his Instagram page, saying quote I am deeply remorseful for my actions on Tuesday night.
I behaved in a manner I am not proud of.
He also added I have been dealing with personal challenges, and that the importance of mental health is extremely real, and I vow to get the help I need.
As part of the terms of his release, Sherman has been instructed not to have any contact with his father-in-law, not to use any drugs or alcohol, and not to possess a weapon.
