State Police soon afterward were in contact with Redmond authorities, who at 2 a.m. PT received a 911 call from an adult claiming an adult male family member (Sherman) was trying to force his way into their home, which was not his.
Sherman allegedly fought with Redmond police when they arrived before being apprehended and taken to a local hospital, according to authorities. TMZ also reported that a K9 was used during Sherman’s apprehension.
