Both Richard sherman AND cops sustained gnarly wounds in the NFL star’s arrest last week … new police photos, obtained by TMZ Sports, show.
In the photos, taken by law enforcement after the cops said they were involved in a massive fight to arrest the NFL player on July 14 … you can see Sherman and the cops were bloodied during the alleged brawl outside Sherman’s in-laws’ home in Redmond, WA.
Some photos show Sherman had a large gash on his foot that needed to be closed with stitches.
In other photos you can see that one officer had a big scratch on his shoulder … while another had a large wound on the inside of his thigh.
Luckily, the cops described all of the injuries as minor… none of the parties needing major medical attention.
Other photos of the cops released on Thursday appear to show damage to the door Sherman hammered as he tried to enter his in-laws just before his arrest.
As we previously reported, Sherman was hit with five felonies – including DUI and Resisting Arrest – for his alleged actions during the night.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges in a King County courtroom last Friday … but said in a press release earlier today, “I am deeply sorry for my actions.”
Sherman is due to return to court for a hearing in his case on August 13.
Our sincere thanks to
