Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was charged with five misdemeanor charges Friday over an alleged domestic violence incident from Tuesday.
He now says he is “deeply remorseful” and will get the help he needs.
On Tuesday, Sherman reportedly crashed his car into a construction site, and then tried to batter down the door of the home his in-laws own in Redmond, Washington. Prosecutors arrested him on Wednesday and charged him on Friday over the incidents. Charging him with driving under the influence, endangering roadway workers, resisting arrest and domestic-violence-related counts of malicious mischief and criminal trespass, the Seattle Times reported.
A police report adds that Sherman fought with the responding officers and a police dog had to be used to help subdue him.
The 33-year-old player could face more than a year in prison if he is convicted on all five misdemeanor charges.
