Broncos’ Jerry Jeudy is released on bail after one night in Colorado Prison; Victim asks judge to drop charges

During his first off-season prep alongside new quarterback Russell Wilson, Broncos star Jerry Jeudy has been sidelined indefinitely due to an off-field problem. On Thursday, the former Colorado first-round draft pick was arrested on charges of second-degree criminal tampering as part of a domestic violence case. Arapahoe Sheriff’s Office Announced

He appeared in court on Friday and was awarded a $1,500 personal acknowledgment bond. He is expected to be released later in the day.

A temporary protection order is now in effect, meaning neither side can make contact with the other, although the prosecutor of the alleged case in court said she was not seeking a restraining order.

No plea was made.

After the arrest, Sheriff Tyler Brown clarified that the prosecution is the mother of Jeudy’s 1-month-old daughter, but that no physical contact was made as part of the incident. Deputies were sent, Brown explained, after the woman requested a “keep the peace” situation, claiming that Jeudy “owned” her and had no access to it.

The prosecutor said in court that she wanted to drop the charges and explained that she had called the police so that the incident would be checked. She said she didn’t see Jeudy as a threat when it escalated.

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

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

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

He can travel, the judge said at the hearing. The next hearing is scheduled for May 31.

The former Alabama star, who was drafted 15th overall in 2020, had been particularly active this off-season, attending his team’s volunteer practices and mini camp to build chemistry with Wilson. He hoped to enter 2022 as the QB’s No. 1 receiver against Courtland Sutton, with a total of 90 catches and 1,323 yards in two NFL seasons. Jeudy missed seven games during the 2021 campaign while recovering from a high ankle sprain.
