Professional football player Jerry Jeudy has been arrested by Arapahoe Co sheriff deputies. He's being held at the Arapahoe Co jail on charges of 2nd degree criminal tampering w/a domestic violence enhancer, a misdemeanor. He's on a no bond hold. He's innocent until proven guilty
Sheriff Tyler Brown said during a press conference Thursday there was no physical contact made by Jeudy:
According to Brown, Jeudy was cooperative when he was arrested.
Benjamin Allbright of KOA Colorado reports the Broncos are aware of the situation but will not comment further at this time.
According to Troy Renck and Blair Miller of Denver7, a person is charged with criminal tampering if they "tamper with property of another with intent to cause injury, inconvenience, or annoyance to that person or to another, or if they knowingly makes an unauthorized connection with property of a utility." If convicted, Jeudy faces a harsher penalty with the domestic violence enhancer.
Jeudy also faces potential discipline from the NFL under the league's personal conduct policy, which could lead to a suspension.
Court records also show that Jeudy was found guilty of a traffic infraction last July for speeding 10-19 miles per hour over a 75 mph speed limit in Arapahoe County.
A first-round pick by the Broncos in 2020, Jeudy has been a disappointment through two seasons. He has 90 catches for 1,323 yards and three touchdowns in his career.
