Richard Sherman is breaking the silence around his arrest.

A few days after the free-agent NFL cornerback was arrested and charged with burglary domestic violence, he took to Twitter to offer a statement of thanks and vowed to get help that he needs amidst personal turmoil.

Sherman’s statement reads:

I am deeply remorseful for my actions on Tuesday night. 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.
