Former NFL player and current broadcaster Richard Sherman was arrested early Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Washington State Patrol said.

Sherman, 35, was booked into King County Correctional Facility in Seattle at about 4:30 a.m. Pacific time. No other information was made available, according to multiple media reports.

A member of the NFL’s all-decade team for 2010-19, Sherman was a five-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All-Pro defensive back.

Selected in the fifth round by the Seattle Seahawks out of Stanford, he played 11 NFL seasons for the Seahawks (2011-17), San Francisco 49ers (2018-20) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2021). He recorded 37 interceptions, returned three for touchdowns, forced five fumbles and recovered seven while totaling 495 tackles in 144 games (136 starts).

He won Super Bowl XLVIII with Seattle over the Denver Broncos in the 2013 season.

Sherman has been an analyst for Amazon Prime Thursday night pregame and postgame shows for two seasons, and he joined Fox Sports’ “Undisputed” sports talk show in 2023.

He pleaded guilty in March 2022 to first-degree negligent driving, second-degree criminal trespass and speeding in a construction zone in a July 2021 incident in Redmond, Wash., a Seattle suburb. According to media reports, he received a 90-day suspended sentence with two years of monitored supervision, and the two-year period has not expired.
