San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree attempted to start a fight with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman at a charity event last summer, reports Jerry Brewer of The Seattle Times.

The incident took place at an event hosted by Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald in August and attended by both players.

Sherman has been upset with Crabtree since last summer. Both attended Arizona star receiver Larry Fitzgerald’s charity event. While there, Sherman went to shake Crabtree’s hand, and Crabtree tried to start a fight, according to Sherman’s older brother, Branton.

“I’m going to make a play and embarrass him,” Richard Sherman vowed that day.
