Five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman drank one bottle of vodka and one bottle of Hennessy and then threatened to kill himself, a police audio obtained by TMZ Sports reveals.
On Wednesday morning, Sherman was arrested and booked on charges of burglary domestic violence, resisting arrest and malicious mischief.
“I need officers here now!” Sherman’s wife can be heard saying on the 911 call, per TMZ. “He’s trying to leave now. In the house, he was being aggressive. He was wrestling with my uncle. He’s threatening to kill himself. He has sent text messages to people saying he’s going to hang himself.”
“And, he’s saying that if the police show up — please don’t shoot is what I’m asking.
“He said if the police show up, he’ll try to fight them.”
Sherman, who is a free agent, is still behind bars and being held without bail.
