Speaking about the incident for the first time, Sherman had a lot to say about his behavior.
“I behaved in a manner I am not proud of. I have been dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted. The importance of mental and emotional health is extremely real and I vow to get the help I need. I appreciate all of the people who have reached out in support of me and my family, including our community here in Seattle. I am grateful to have such an amazing wife, family and support system to lean on during this time,” he said.

Authorities say a 911 call from the residence was received at 2 AM The person calling said that an adult male family member who did not live at the residence attempted to force his way into the home.
