Free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested and booked Wednesday morning for a burglary and a domestic violence felony charge.

It was also announced that Sherman was denied bail. A Redmond Police Department spokesman said that it’s standard procedure for suspects of domestic violence to be denied bail until they can appear before a judge.

A spokesperson for the Redmond Police Department said that a 911 call was made from the residence at 1:46 a.m. The caller said that a male family member who didn’t live at the residence was attempting to force his way into the home.

When Police arrived, they identified the suspect as Sherman. Police say that Sherman was uncooperative and fought with them during questioning. Police had to deploy a K9 unit to subdue the combative star. He was then apprehended and taken to a local hospital to be checked. After he was cleared medically, he was booked into the King County Correctional Facility.

However, his legal troubles do not end there. The Washington State Patrol is investigating Sherman for another incident. The cornerback is being investigated for a hit and run and damage to the state Department of Transportation property. This was reported by Adam Schefter of NFL Insider.

State police said that the single-car incident occurred when a car struck a concrete barrier. The vehicle was then abandoned in a parking lot. The vehicle registration came back to Sherman.

“The driver apparently was able to drive the vehicle off the exit and abandoned it in a nearby parking lot,” Schefter explained on Twitter. “The registration was run, and it came back to Richard Sherman.”

The NFLPA released a statement on this situation since Sherman is vice president of the executive committee.

“We were made aware of an arrest last night of one of our player leaders for an alleged domestic violence incident and have activated our domestic violence crisis protocol for the protection and support of everyone involved,” the NFLPA said in a statement. “We will continue to monitor events closely as more facts are made available to us.”
