Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was arrested Thursday.
We now know what he is being booked for.
The 23-year-old is being held at the Arapahoe County jail on misdemeanor charges of 2nd-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. He is being held without bond.
Under Colorado’s Title 18, a person commits the crime of second-degree criminal tampering if he/she “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.”
The domestic violence enhancer could essentially increase penalties if Jeudy is charged and convicted.
Jeudy, the No. 15 overall pick by the Broncos in the 2020 NFL Draft, is expected to be one of the top receiving targets for newly traded quarterback Russell Wilson.
Jeudy was hampered by an ankle injury for most of last season, as he hauled in 38 catches for 467 yards and failed to score a touchdown.
