Domestic Violence Charges Against Jerry Jeudy to be Dropped


Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy has been cleared off all domestic violence charges three weeks after being arrested and detained on a misdemeanour charge. The 23-year-old was arrested on May 12, 2022, and initially charged "with second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer," wrote ESPN's Jeff Legwold. 

"Jeudy spent a night in Arapahoe County jail, per Colorado law, and was later released on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond and was allowed to have contact with the victim in the case, who is the mother of his one-month-old child," wrote Legwold.

NFL analyst Adam Schefter also Tweeted out a small explanation about the case from Jeudy's attorney, Harvey Steinberg.

"After reviewing the evidence, I always believed that no crime had been committed and all charges would be dismissed,” said Steinberg.

Today, the District Attorney in Arapahoe County, Colorado, filed a motion to drop all charges against Jeudy. The judge still has to agree to the motion and formally dismiss all charges, but that is expected at this point.

Several points helped Jeudy in this case. At the time of the alleged domestic violence incident, Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown reported that the victim---the mother of Jeudy's child---was not physically assaulted

"It solely involved property and there was no damage to property,'' said Brown. 

Brown explained that the incident involved Jeudy withholding several items from the woman, including her wallet and medical information for their child. Jeudy said he was retaliating after she took one of his phones. However, the woman pleaded that no charges be laid in a court hearing following the incident.
