Richard Sherman, a broadcaster and former NFL player, was taken into custody early on Saturday morning on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, according to the Washington State Patrol.

At roughly 4:30 in the morning Pacific time, Sherman, 35, was checked into Seattle’s King County Correctional Facility. There was no more information released, according to several media reports.

Sherman was a five-time Pro Bowl pick and a three-time first-team All-Pro defensive back. He was also a member of the NFL’s all-decade team for 2010–19.

He played 11 NFL seasons for the Seattle Seahawks (2011–17), San Francisco 49ers (2018–20), and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2021), after being selected by the Seahawks in the fifth round out of Stanford. In 144 games, he totaled 495 tackles, forced five turnovers, recovered seven, and recorded 37 interceptions. He also returned three of those for touchdowns.

In the 2013 season, he and the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Sherman joined Fox Sports’ “Undisputed” sports talk show in 2023 after serving as an analyst for two seasons on Thursday night pregame and postgame shows on Amazon Prime.

In July 2021, he was involved in an incident in Redmond, Washington, a suburb of Seattle. He entered a guilty plea in March 2022 to first-degree careless driving, second-degree criminal trespass, and speeding in a construction zone. He was given a 90-day suspended sentence along with two years of closely monitored supervision; the two years have not yet passed, according to media sources.
