On Thursday, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department arrested Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and charged him with second-degree criminal interference with a domestic violence enhancement, a misdemeanor.
Jeudy is detained without bond until he appears before a judge in Arapahoe County Court on Friday at 8:30 a.m.
According to Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown, no physical contact was made in the altercation between Jeudy and the mother of his 1-month-old baby.
“It was exclusively about the property, and there was no property harm,” Brown explained.
Brown stated that the domestic violence enhancement was added to the offense by Colorado law due to Jeudy’s relationship with the lady. Also, according to Colorado law, the domestic violence enhancement precludes release at least until a court appearance.
Jeudy, according to Brown, blocked the lady from getting various items, including the mother’s wallet, medical information for the kid, and a car seat.
According to a police report filed in Arapahoe County court, the lady informed a deputy that things started on Wednesday night. Jeudy had left her wallet and medical documentation in his car at their home, so she couldn’t obtain them.
She stated that she wanted to return to Virginia but could not do so without her stuff, assuring the deputy that she did not want to get Jeudy in “trouble” but only wanted her items returned.
According to the statement, Jeudy acknowledged locking several items, including baby formula, in his car after the lady stole one of his three smartphones and refused to return it.
According to Brown, deputies were called to an Arapahoe County house at 10:15 a.m. for a “maintain the peace” request. Deputies were told by Jeudy that he had detained some of the lady’s items, preventing her from leaving the premises and that the woman had contacted police from a neighbor’s house.
“We are aware of the incident concerning Jerry Jeudy and are obtaining further information,” the Broncos stated in a statement.
The Broncos’ offseason program is underway, and Jeudy has been a frequent attendee. Jeudy, 23, was selected by the Broncos in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
He missed six games due to an ankle injury last season and ended with 38 catches for 467 yards and no touchdowns. On Wednesday, he voiced confidence that quarterback Russell Wilson’s arrival would spell a much better season for him.
