Broncos’ Jerry Jeudy to be released on bail after one night in Colorado jail; Victim asks judge to dismiss charges

In the midst of his first preseason training alongside new quarterback Russell Wilson, Broncos star wide receiver Jerry Jeudy has been sidelined indefinitely due to an off-field issue. On Thursday, the former first-round draft pick was arrested in Colorado on second-degree criminal tampering charges as part of a domestic violence case, the The Arapahoe Sheriff’s Office announced.

On Friday, he appeared in court and was given a $1,500 personal recognizance bond. He is expected to be released later in the day.

There is now a temporary protective order in place, meaning neither party can contact the other, although the accuser in the alleged case said in court that she was not seeking a no contact order.

No allegation was made.

Following the arrest, Sheriff Tyler Brown clarified that the accuser is the mother of Jeudy’s 1-month-old daughter, but that there was no physical contact as part of the incident. Agents were dispatched, Brown explained, after the woman requested a “keep the peace” situation, claiming that Jeudy had “her property” of her and could not access her.

The accuser said in court that she wanted the charges dropped, explaining that she called the police to monitor the incident. She said that she didn’t see Jeudy as a threat when things escalated.

According to the Arapahoe County police report, “things got crazy” between Jeudy and his son’s mother, who said Jeudy put his wallet, his son’s medical papers and other things in his car.

Jeudy was booked into the Arapahoe County jail, about an hour southeast of Denver, Jeudy, 23, was booked by sheriff’s deputies between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (MT), according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Jeudy’s second-degree criminal tampering charge indicates interference with another’s property “with the intent to cause injury, inconvenience, or nuisance,” as reported by Tom Pelissero. The charge, a misdemeanor, includes a “domestic violence enhancer,” which designates Jeudy’s relationship with his accuser.

You can travel, according to the judge at the hearing. The next hearing is scheduled for May 31.

The former Alabama star, drafted 15th overall in 2020, had been especially active this offseason, attending his team’s voluntary workouts and minicamp to build chemistry with Wilson. She thought to enter 2022 as the No. 1 quarterback receiver against Courtland Sutton, totaling 90 receptions and 1,323 yards over two NFL seasons. Jeudy missed seven games during the 2021 campaign while recovering from a high ankle sprain.
