Broncos’ Jeudy arrested on charges of 2nd-degree criminal tampering

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was arrested in Colorado on Thursday, the Arapahoe County Sheriff announced in a statement.

Jeudy was charged with second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, which is a misdemeanor charge.

The 23-year-old is on a no-bond hold, which means he must stay in jail until he sees a judge, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Jeudy’s hearing is scheduled for Friday morning, per Michael Spencer of CBS Denver.

Sheriff Tyler Brown said in a press conference Thursday that a woman, who has a child with Jeudy, called police in the morning saying Jeudy had some “property” of hers that she could no longer access, according to CB Cotton of Denver7 News.

“There was no physical contact between Mr. Jeud and the female party. Ity involved the property,” Brown said, according to Spencer.

In Colorado, second-degree criminal tampering is defined as tampering “with property of another with intent to cause injury, inconvenience, or annoyance to that person or to another or if he knowingly makes an unauthorized connection with property of a utility,” according to Andrew Mason of DNVR Sports.

“When it comes to the intensity of the charge, this is a very low-level misdemeanor,” Brown said, per Spencer. “But we take all cases of domestic violence very seriously. It’s important to make sure that (the) victim’s voices are heard … and that’s what we’re doing right now.”

The Broncos released a statement following the wideout’s arrest. “We are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information.”

Jeudy, the 15th overall pick in 2020, is entering his third season with Denver.
