NFL free agent Richard Sherman was arrested and charged with domestic violence against a family member, according to ESPN.
The former Seahawks and 49ers cornerback was arrested on Wednesday morning and charged with burglary and domestic violence.
He is currently in jail being held without bond until he appears before a judge, ESPN reports.
Police responded to a 911 call about an adult male family member trying to force his way into their home.
The caller said Richard Sherman did not live at the residence.
When police arrived, Sherman allegedly struggled during the arrest, but was ultimately subdued by a police K9 dog. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated for dog bites and then booked into the King County Correctional Facility.
The NFL Players Association, of which Sherman is vice president, reacted to the news in a statement that read:
“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. We will continue to monitor events closely as more facts are made available to us.”
