Sherman, who was formerly a key cog in the Seattle Seahawks’ so-called ‘Legion of Boom’ defense, is currently being detained by authorities after being refused bail in the case and faces a potential felony charge related to the alleged incident.
A spokesperson for the Redmond Police Department confirmed that they received a call from a member of the public at 2am local time who claimed that an adult family member was trying to force his way into a residence in which he did not live.
Police arrived to find Sherman outside the house. According to reports, he engaged in a physical altercation with officers and was subdued with the help of a police dog. A police spokesperson also confirmed that no one at the residence was injured during the incident.
“We will continue to monitor events closely as more facts are made available to us.”
In addition to his five Pro Bowl appearances, Sherman, 33, has been selected to the NFL’s All-Pro team on three occasions and was a 2014 Super Bowl champion.
He is currently without a team after being released by the San Francisco 49ers after the end of last season.
