Jerry Jeudy really did not want the mother of his child to see something on his phone.
The Denver Broncos receiver was released from Arapahoe County jail on charges of “second degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer.” The 23-year-old is presently on a no-bond hold according to the sheriff’s office. As a result, he will be required to appear in front of a judge before he can be released.
KDVR-TV in Denver received a copy of the affidavit of Jeudy’s arrest in which the woman stated that “things got crazy” between her and Jeudy and that the Broncos wideout put her wallet, medical paperwork for their child and the baby’s car seat in his car, preventing her from getting access to the items.
Jeudy confirmed the woman’s claim to deputies, saying that “she took one of his three phones and would not give it back” to him as the reason he initiated his behavior, according to Sheriff Tyler Brown of Arapahoe County, Colo.
The woman said she does not want to get the Broncos wideout in trouble but simply “wants her items back so she can leave” and return to Virginia.
Jeudy and the woman have a one-month-old child together.
The Broncos drafted Jeudy at No. 15 in 2020 NFL draft. The former Crimson Tide standout compiled 52 catches for 856 yards and three touchdowns in 16 appearances in his rookie season. However, in 2021, injuries derailed his production, limiting him to 38 catches, 467 yards in 10 games.
