Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was released from jail Friday morning. The standout Broncos wide receiver was released on a personal recognizance bond after appearing in Arapahoe County Court. He was arrested Thursday and charged with second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, a misdemeanor.
During court Friday morning, the mother of Jeudy’s 1-month old baby asked the judge to release him. She stated that she never felt threatened and said, “I just wanted them to monitor the situation… he was not a threat,” according to NFL Insider Ari Meirov.

The Broncos wide receiver upon his release was allowed full contact with the mother of his child. The judge stated “there was not probable cause to believe that there was the threat or use of any physical force against the victim,” as ESPN’s Jeff Legwold noted.
There was reportedly no physical contact at all involved in the case. This was not a domestic violence dispute. Jeudy refused to allow the woman a number of items belonging to her, including her wallet, medical information and a car seat for their child.
On Thursday, the Broncos released this statement: “We are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information.”
Jeudy, the former Denver Broncos first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, had been participating in the team’s offseason program. He missed six games last season due to ankle injuries. With the trade for Russell Wilson during the offseason, the Broncos are expected to be contenders for a Super Bowl this season. Jerry Jeudy will be needed on offense for that to happen.
