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."

More details have emerged about Barkevious Mingo's arrest for child-sexual contact in Texas last week.

The Atlanta Falcons released the linebacker from a one-year contract following his arrest on one count of child-sexual contact.

According to Texas officials, Mingo pulled at a teenage boy's underwear and tried to have sex with him at a hotel on July 4, 2019.

Sports Illustrated obtained the arrest warrant which explained the details of the crime.

According to the Arlington Police Department, Mingo invited a teenage family member and his young friend to an amusement park over the Fourth of July weekend in 2019.

Mingo reportedly took the boys to a steakhouse and bought them clothes from a Nike store before taking them back to his hotel.

According to the warrant, "the victim was woken up by [Mingo] pulling at his underwear" later that night.

The victim said that he was "scared and pretended to be asleep" when Mingo allegedly became more "aggressive and pulled the victim's underwear down to his shins".

Mingo allegedly then tried to have anal intercourse with the teen.

Mingo, 30, was released from jail in Tarrant County, Texas, after posting $25,000 bond on Friday, July 9.

Mingo's lead attorney, Chris Lewis, said the allegation is a lie.

"The accusation against Mr. Mingo is a lie. Barkevious knows it - so does his accuser," Lewis said in a statement to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Lewis said his client will be "fully vindicated when the truth comes to light. When that happens, the true motivation of the accuser will be clear and unambiguous."

Mingo could serve as much as 20 years in prison if convicted.

Actor Kyle Massey is facing charges of sending explicit material to an underage girl who he has known since she was 4 years old.

Massey, 29, is accused of electronically sending sexually explicit videos and images to a 13-year-old girl in December 2018 and January 2019.

The former child star is best known for playing Cory Baxter on Disney's "That's So Raven" and "Cory in the House."

According to legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Massey is charged with one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.

The case is connected to a civil suit filed against Massey in March 2019 for $1.5 million for allegedly sending "numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos" via Snapchat.

Massey claimed he was being extorted for money by the girl's family in 2019.

At the time, Massey's mother said her son sent the explicit material to the girl's mother, not the girl.

The girl's legal team initially opted for the civil suit against Massey, but according to new documents, obtained by TMZ, the case was dropped because Massey didn't have the money to make the case worth it.

The girl's mother then reported the allegations to the Sheriff's Office in 2020.

According to TMZ, police were given a thumb drive containing the explicit material Massey allegedly sent the girl via Snapchat. The material included a pornographic video of a man who appears to be Massey exposing himself.

Massey was scheduled to appear at his arraignment Monday in King County Criminal Court in Washington, but he failed to show.

Actor Drake Bell pleaded guilty to one count of attempted child endangerment involving a minor girl in Ohio.

The former child actor and singer appeared via Zoom at the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas in Cleveland on Wednesday.

Fox 8 News previously reported that the victim, now 15, accused Bell of inappropriate conduct that took place in Cleveland on Dec. 1, 2017. The victim filed a police report in December 2018.

Fox 8 Cleveland reports that Bell engaged the minor girl in an inappropriate chat that "at times, was sexual in nature."

Brian To/WENN.com

Bell, real name Jared Drake Bell, pleaded guilty to one count of disseminating material harmful to juveniles, a 4th degree felony. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 6 to 18 months in prison and/or a fine of up to $5,000.

Judge Timothy McCormick informed Bell that prison time is not mandatory but if he is sentenced to prison time he'd be subjected to three years of probation.

The Nickelodeon star was arrested on June 3 in Cleveland. He posted a $2,500 bond and was released from the Cuyahoga County Jail.

"All facts will be revealed in a courtroom," Bell's attorney Ian Friedman said on June 4 -- which likely explains why Bell copped a plea to avoid a trial.

Child molestation victims took to social media to complain that Bell was being handled with kid gloves (no pun intended) because he is a celebrity.

Bell's sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 12.

The Texas teenager who allegedly kidnapped and fatally stabbed a 4-year-old boy has been charged with capital murder.

Cash Gernon's body was found on a residential street around 6 a.m. on May 15. Prosecutors say Darriynn Brown kidnapped Cash from his bed and stabbed him to death with an "edged weapon."

Cash and his twin brother, Carter, were in the care of their father's ex-girlfriend, Monica Sherrod, when he was snatched.

The Dallas Police Department upgraded Brown's charges to capital murder after forensic evidence linked him to the child.

"Evidence submitted to the lab has been returned linking Darriynn Brown to Cash Gernon at the time of his death," said a statement issued by the Dallas PD.

Brown, 18, reportedly interacted with Cash at Sherrod's home in the days before the murder and was familiar with the family.

A neighbor identified Brown as the same man who broke into his home, attacked him and attempted to kidnap his 2-year-old granddaughter in a separate incident in February.

Brown is charged with burglary and injury to the elderly in that case.

Russell Simmons is suing his ex-wife Kimora Lee for allegedly using his company stock to pay her husband Tim Leissner's bail and legal bills.

In the complaint, Simmons accused both Lee and Leissner of breach of contract, fraudulent concealment and breach of confidential relations, among other charges.

WENN.com

Simmons alleges that he, Lee and Leissner entered into a business arrangement in 2016 when they joined his investment company Nu Horizons.

He said Nu Horizons made "considerable investments" in the "tens of millions of dollars" to Celsius Holdings, Inc. - a publicly traded energy fitness drink company.

WENN.com

The lawsuit alleges that when Leissner was arrested on money laundering charges in 2017, he and Lee "conspired" to "fraudulently transfer" almost 4 million Celsius shares to themselves.

They then allegedly sold the stocks to pay defense lawyers to represent Leissner. The couple is pictured with their son, Wolfe, in 2015.

Leissner pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy to commit money laundering for the theft of billions of dollars from Malaysian wealth fund 1MDB in 2018. In order to avoid jail time, he agreed to forfeit nearly $44 million, reported Forbes.

Simmons' lawsuit reads:

"Awaiting his plea deal and sentencing, Defendants Leissner and Lee, knowing full well that they would be required to pay tens of millions for bail and possible victim compensation, conspired and effectuated... an unlawful fraudulent scheme."

Simmons claims he didn't discover the fraud until July 2019. He asked Lee and Leissner to settle the matter out of court and return the shares, as well as pay punitive damages and attorney costs, but they apparently refused.

An attorney representing Lee and Leissner called the lawsuit "baseless".

An 11-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy were arrested Wednesday and charged in the assault and robbery of an Asian man in San Leandro, California.

Police say the 11-year-old -- who has an extensive criminal record -- was the getaway driver.

The unidentified 80-year-old man was walking alone on Acapulco Road at 1:50 p.m. Wednesday when two Black males wearing dark hoodies approached and assaulted him.

The teens snatched a Fitbit off the man's wrist, stole his wallet and knocked him to the ground.

The victim suffered minor injuries but did not require medical attention, police said.

The younger boy is seen in the surveillance video (circled) but he did not participate in the assault on the victim.

Police say he was behind the wheel of a blue Subaru sedan that the males fled in after the attack. The car had been carjacked on May 10 in Oakland, Calif., police said.

Police believe the same suspects are responsible for stealing a Hispanic woman's purse at the 500 block of Bancroft Avenue the same day.

Sources told Dion Lim of ABC7 News that the 11-year-old boy has an "extensive criminal history," that includes robberies and carjackings.

Due to his young age, police released the boy into the custody of his single mother.

The driver of a van packed with 16 women that crashed near Atlanta over the weekend has been charged with vehicular homicide.

Monica Manire was arrested Wednesday and charged with six counts of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, Fox 5 Atlanta reported. She was also charged with improper lane change.

Manire, 32, of Byron, was driving the 2002 Dodge Ram van to a sober living meeting in Gwinnett County when she recklessly changed lanes, causing the van to flip on its side and slide across 2 lanes of traffic.

She is being held at the Gwinnett County Jail, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

According to a police report, the van was heading north on I-85, approaching the I-985 split, when another vehicle unexpectedly changed lanes in front of it.

Manire changed lanes to avoid a collision. The van lost control and rolled over on its side before sliding across two lanes and striking a guard rail where it burst into flames.

A motorist kicked out the windshield in a desperate attempt to reach the passengers trapped inside the burning van.

10 people including Manire made it out alive, but six women perished in the fire.

Gwinnett County police released the names of the victims who are all from Georgia.

Among the dead was Alishia Carroll of Columbus, a 34-year-old mother of four, who was trying to kick her addictions.

"She was finally trying to get good for herself and good for kids and God just wanted to take her home," Carroll's oldest child, Kylie Mitchell, told WXIA-TV.

The other deceased victims are Kristie Whitfield, 44, of Mount Airy, Ashleigh Paris, 26, of Kennesaw, Tina Rice, 53, of Atlanta, Normisha Monroe, 38, of Norcross, and Rose Patrick, 34, of Ellabell.
