Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy was arrested Thursday in Arapahoe County in connection with a domestic violence investigation.
Jeudy was booked into the jail on Thursday for investigation of “second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, a misdemeanor”, according to the sheriff’s office. He is currently being held without bond.
A person commits second-degree criminal tampering if he “tampers with property of another with intent to cause injury, inconvenience, or annoyance to that person or to another or if he knowingly makes an unauthorized connection with property of a utility,” according to Colorado statute.
Jeudy, who was taken into custody between 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., is being investigated. He has not been formally charged.
He was arrested on “probable cause” and there is not arrest affidavit in the case, according to the sheriff’s office.
On Thursday afternoon the Denver Broncos released a statement: “We are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information.”
