Super Bowl Winner Said He Was Going To Hang Himself Before Arrest For Attacking In-Laws

Five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested in Seattle early Wednesday morning, and his wife claims he was “threatening to kill himself” in a call to 911.

The future Hall of Famer was charged on three counts that included felony burglary domestic violence, malicious mischief, and resisting arrest when he tried to force his way into his in-laws’ house around 2 a.m.

Sherman’s wife Ashley Moss called 911 and said the free agent “was being aggressive” with a family member after drinking “two bottles” of hard liquor. In the 911 audio tape, she can be heard begging him not to drive off, and told the operator that he was “threatening to kill himself … and sent text messages to people saying he is going to hang himself.”

Sherman reportedly drove through an active construction zone and hit a concrete barrier with his SUV, which rendered the vehicle undrivable, before taking off on foot for his in-laws’ residence.  

Once he got there, he forcibly tried to enter the home and caused damage to the door before police arrived on the scene. Sherman reportedly behaved amicably with the officers, until he was informed that he was being arrested, and a K-9 unit had to be deployed to get him into custody. 

Both Sherman and a police officer were taken to a local hospital for minor injuries, where a breathalyzer was administered.  

“At this time we’re going to make no statements, except he didn’t harm anybody,” Ashley Moss said in a statement. “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 was denied bail, which is standard practice in a domestic-violence crime in the state of Washington. His initial hearing is set for Thursday.

He should be jailed, tried and convicted and returned to jail.

I love how they say those blacks are always such good people, but, the real them comes to surface when they are being arrested for their crime. This is exactly why most of them get shot.
They have no respect for authorities as they see themselves as always the authoritarian.

Just because he is a big time athlete, they usually get off, but, I’m sure their background checks were avoided at all cost, prior to their becoming a star athlete. We see it all the time.

Of course, you know he won’t get any punishment, because, he is black. It’s called black privilege….

Many of these guys are spoiled babies who have tantrums when they do not get what they want. They think that the law and rules of civil behavior do not apply to them. The causes are too much adulation from fans and too much money too early in life. Their horrible behavior has been indulged and they need to learn to live by the same rules applicable to everyone else. Jail time is a good remedy.

This is why I do not watch or attend any pro sport event. Most of these guy are druggies, wife beaters, racists, thugs, child abusers and other things. They get paid more than they deserve for playing a game. Once they start acting like civilized humans, respect America and the fans I might change my mind. Right now no one should attend or watch any pro sport team. Just no one attend any game and in 2 months the price of a ticket would drop by 50%.

Sounds to me like he had a bad reaction to alcohol. He needs treatment to not drink. Many have had that problem. They are basically good people but should never drink alcohol again. If what the wife said was true on how much he drank, then I’m surprised he wasn’t in the hospital or dead. I hope he gets the treatment he needs.

Really want to see how 6% of the 13% act watch live PD, court PD, Most Outrageous, Cops if you can find it any more, court cam, body cam and most dangerous. You will see why the 6% of the 13% are the one most arrested and bring harm to themselves. They seem to always cuss and resist arrest and cuss out the judges. Watch these programs and you will see they do not act the way civilized people act. I think a few of the shows were taken off the air because they showed the truth.
