According to ESPN, the football star is being investigated for burglary domestic violence, a felony charge.

He was denied bail according to public records, but a spokesman for the police told the sports outlet that is standard procedure for suspects of domestic violence before they can see a judge.

A 911 call from the house was received, with the person saying an adult male family member who did not live at the residency was attempting to force his way into the house. He was outside when police arrived, and fought with the cops, but was taken into a local hospital to be checked and then booked at King County Correctional Facility. No one at the home was injured.

The Washington State Police also are investigating him for a separate incident, in connection to a hit-and-run and damage to state Department of Transportation property.

The investigation is ongoing. He has not yet been criminally charged for the alleged domestic violence or the hit-and-run.

“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,” said the NFL Players Association in a statement to ESPN.

Richard Sherman is married to his wife Ashley, and they have two children together.
