Denver Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy was taken into custody by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. local time today, according to Public Information Officer Jon Bartman. Bartman told Peppystores that the former first-round draft pick faces second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence amplifier.
Under Colorado law, a perpetrator is charged with domestic violence if the perpetrator committed the act not to harm their partner but to harass, alarm, or coerce them. If the police can determine that the reasons for Jeudy’s actions were to harass, alert, or coerce his partner, Jeudy will be charged with domestic violence.
Jeudy is currently being held without bond until he sees a judge tomorrow morning.
