A 911 caller says Richard sherman drank two bottles of strong alcohol and threatened to kill himself before being arrested on Wednesday… new police audio, obtained TMZ Sports, reveals.
In the call, which lasted 4 minutes, a woman who identified herself as Sherman’s wife told the expedition that the NFL star was “drunk and belligerent and threatening to kill herself.”
The woman was frantic – breathing heavily and speaking quickly – and begged the immediate dispatch of officers to her home in Washington.
“I need officers here now!” you can hear the woman say during the call. “He’s trying to leave now. In the house he was aggressive. He was fighting with my uncle. He threatens to kill himself. He texted people saying he was going to hang himself.”
“And, he says if the police show up – please don’t shoot, that’s what I’m asking.”
The woman continued, “He said if the police showed up he would try to fight them.”
We can then hear the woman say that she was afraid Sherman was leaving the house … saying to the dispatch: “It’s Richard Sherman! Like, ma’am, it’s a fucking emergency! I need officers. Here Now!”
It should be noted that the 911 dispatcher appeared annoyed and frustrated on several occasions by the woman on the call… telling her at one point, “Listen to me! I manage this! You have to stop telling me that! “
The caller finally told the 911 dispatcher that Sherman had drunk 1 bottle of vodka and 1 bottle of Hennessey… and was concerned for everyone’s safety.
As we reported earlier, Sherman was arrested shortly after the call … after cops said he attempted to break into his in-laws’ home in Redmond, Wash.
Sherman, who was convicted of domestic violence burglary, is still behind bars … being held without bail.
