Richard Sherman’s wife told 911 operator that the cornerback was drunk, threatened suicide

Jul 14, 2021 at 3:09 PM--


Seattle-Tacoma radio station KIRO-FM obtained and aired audio from the 911 call placed by Ashley Moss, the wife of former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, and the details emerging from it are shocking.

Sherman was arrested on Wednesday morning for "burglary domestic violence." Although, the "domestic violence" designation has to do with the relationship between Sherman and the owners of the residence, who are his in-laws, per Redmond police chief Darrell Lowe.

Sherman had allegedly crashed his vehicle about an hour before arriving at the residence. There is a suspicion of DUI, which is seemingly confirmed by the audio of the call. The cornerback "physically resisted" police, forcing the authorities to deploy a K9 dog. Sherman sustained a minor laceration to his lower leg and ankle before finally being apprehended.

"I need officers to my house now," Moss told the 911 operator. "My husband is drunk and threatened to kill himself."

She indicated no weapons were involved in the incident before exclaiming, "I need officers here now."

"He's being aggressive. He has sent text messages," Moss continued. "... He's trying to leave now, the house. He's being aggressive. He's wrestling with my uncle. He's threatening to kill himself. He's sent text messages to people saying he's going to hang himself."

Moss added: "And he's saying that if the police show up — please don't shoot, is what I'm asking. ... He said that if the police show up that he'll try to fight them."

Obviously fearing for his safety, you can hear Moss yelling to Sherman to "please stop" as he tried to leave the residence in a vehicle. She said that Sherman had been drinking Vodka and a bottle of Hennessy that evening.

"He's intoxicated," a voice later said in the background.

'I just got to step up to the plate': New 49ers starting cornerback Deommodore Lenoir on his new role

A lot of newer young players will need to step up to the plate in order to fill the void left in the once potent 49ers' secondary after former starting cornerback Jason Verrett went down for the season with a torn ACL. Even prior to the heart-breaking loss in arguably the most important defensive unit this season, the secondary depth, especially the cornerback, was a red flag. Behind Verrett was an injured Emmanuel Moseley and two unproven rookie cornerbacks, who had size and skill concerns as they were taken after the first two rounds, not a great place to invest in a premium position. Fifth-round rookie Deommodore Lenoir however, has been a very pleasant surprise for San Fransisco, at least through preseason and Week 1 of the NFL season. Lenoir allowed a 0.0 passer rating
