A domestic violence charge has also been added to the arrest.
On Thursday, May 12, Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was arrested by the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department.
According to the Sherriff's Office, Jeudy is facing a second-degree criminal tampering charge with a domestic violence enhancer. The charges are a misdemeanor and Jeudy is currently being held without bond until he can see a judge in Arapahoe County Court at 8:30 AM on Friday.
In a Thursday afternoon briefing, Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown said that there was no physical contact made in the argument between Jeudy and the mother of his 1-month-old daughter.
Brown stated: "It solely involved property, and there was no damage to property." Per Colorado law, the domestic violence enhancer was only added because of the relationship between Jeudy and the woman. The law also prevents Jeudy's release until he can see a judge.
The woman told a deputy that the argument began on Wednesday night and that Jeudy put her wallet and medical paperwork in his car at their home so she could not retrieve them.
The medical information is for the child that the two have together. The woman stated that she wanted to go back to Virginia, but Jeudy was preventing her from doing so.
According to the police report, Jeudy admitted to locking a few things inside of his car. However, he stated it was due to the woman taking one of his three cell phones and refusing to give it back.
The Broncos released the following statement: "We are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information."
