If you noticed Richard Sherman trending on Twitter today, it’s not because the 33-year-old free agent signed with the Seahawks, but because he currently finds himself in a jail holding cell.
According to Adam Schefter, Sherman was booked early this morning at the Seattle Correctional Facility for “Burglary Domestic Violence,” and denied bail.

If you’re confused by the charge of “Burglary Domestic Violence,” you are not alone.
In a domestic violence burglary situation, the offender is typically accused of entering or refusing to leave a house. In first degree offenses, they are also accused of committing an act of violence of carrying a deadly weapon.
The details of the incident are still under wraps at the time of this writing, but it’s worth nothing that Washington state’s Mandatory Arrest Law “requires all state police officers to make an arrest and take someone to jail if they believe they have probable cause to determine who was the primary aggressorin an act of domestic violence that involves any physical violence; or, at minimum, fear involving imminent serious bodily injury.” The law does not require any physical injuries.
This information could end up being totally erroneous, but Sherman married his longtime girlfriend Ashley Moss in 2018, and invited the entire Legion of Boom showed up to the wedding. The pair have two children together, Avery (5) and Rayden (6).
Regardless, the internet can be a cold, cold place.
