Free agent cornerback Richard Sherman threatened to kill himself after drinking two bottles of hard alcohol, a police audio obtained by TMZ Sports revealed. On Wednesday morning, Sherman was booked on charges of burglary domestic violence, resisting arrest and malicious mischief, Redmond (Wash.) police chief Darrell Lowe told reporters during an afternoon news conference.
A police audio obtained by TMZ Sports, revealed some disturbing details from the 911 call made by Sherman's wife. "I need officers here now!" the woman can be heard saying on the call. "He's trying to leave now.
In the house, he was being aggressive. He was wrestling with my uncle. He's threatening to kill himself. He has sent text messages to people saying he's going to hang himself." "And, he's saying that if the police show up -- please don't shoot is what I'm asking."
"He said if the police show up, he'll try to fight them."
Sherman still behind bars
Sherman is still behind bars and being held without bail. Meanwhile, Sherman's wife Ashley Moss defender her husband and said the five-time Pro Bowl cornerback "is a good person and this is not his character."
“At this time we’re going to make no statements, except he didn’t harm anybody,” Ashley Moss said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “My kids were not harmed in the incident. 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, who spent the last few seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, is still a free agent cornerback. Meanwhile, Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is confident that Josh Allen is his successor.
Allen, who had a big 2020 season, made his first Pro Bowl last season and led the Bills to their first AFC Championship appearance since 1993. “There’s no doubt,” Kelly said, via Dante Lasting of the team website.
“I mean if he’s gone, I don’t know who is or who it’s going to be. He just has to be consistent, and I know him well enough to know that the kid can play. If you can get the right material around him, which I think he has, and the offensive line gives him time to throw, things will be awesome.
And talk about my records, I knew before last season started that those records aren’t going to stay around very long”.
