Jerry Jeudy Released After Thursday Arrest, Victim Asks For Case To Be Dismissed
Former University of Alabama and current Denver Bronco Jerry Jeudy was released from jail on Friday morning after appearing in front of Judge Chantel Contiguglia.
Jeudy was arrested on Thursday morning on a misdemeanor second-degree criminal tampering charge that included a domestic violence enhancer.
Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer, Deputy John Bartmann sent the following statement at 11:23 a.m. concerning Jeudy's status Friday morning.
This morning, Mr. Jerry Jeudy went in front of the judge about the Criminal Tampering case from 5/13/2022. Mr. Jeudy was given a $1500 PR bond and released from the facility.
The victim in this case also appeared in front of Judge Contiguglia on Friday and asked the court to dismiss the case against Jeudy. She went on to tell the judge that she never felt threatened by Jeudy but instead called the authorities to "monitor the situation" and to "keep-the-peace" between the two parties.
According to the arrest affidavit, Jeudy put the woman's wallet, baby formula, and their 1-month-old child's medical paperwork in his car and locked it. He said he took those actions because the woman had taken one of his phones and not given it back.
Judge Contiguglia did not dismiss the case against Jeudy, despite the victim's wishes. Contiguglia upheld the mandatory protection order on Jeudy but the victim did not request a no-contact order.
The attorney for Jeudy stated that he should not have been arrested or incarcerated. Jeudy is due to appear in court on May 31.
