It goes without saying, but this isn’t a good look at all for Sherman. He’s made such a tremendous impact on the different communities he’s been associated with, which makes this trouble with the law even more surprising.
In ESPN’s report, the local police said they received a call at around 2 a.m. Pacific Time from someone stating someone was trying to force their way inside a home. That person of course turned out to be Sherman. Sherman, 33, was outside the house when the cops showed up. Shortly after, he tried fighting them. Sherman was eventually booked into the King County Correctional Facility.
Throughout the summer, Sherman has been linked with potential moves to Dallas, Seattle and others. Now, however, teams are surely going to want to wait and see how Sherman’s legal issues are handled before bringing him in for a visit or even putting an offer on the table.
