Reports: All charges against Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy to be dropped
It appears that Jerry Jeudy’s recent legal entanglement will end.
According to multiple reports, the Arapahoe County District Attorney’s office has moved to dismiss all charges against the Broncos wide receiver that stemmed from a May 12 incident. That led to Jeudy’s arrest and overnight detainment.
“After reviewing the evidence, I always believed that no crime had been committed and all charges would be dismissed,” Jeudy’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Jeudy was scheduled for arraignment Tuesday on a misdemeanor charge of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer. According to the arrest report, Jeudy admitted to investigators that he locked baby formula and the wallet of his child’s mother in his car after she took one of his phones.
A day later, Jeudy was released from the Arapahoe County Justice Center after posting bond. At the time, Steinberg told local media that there was no violence involved and that Jeudy should not have been arrested.
“There was no threat of violence, there was no attempted violence, and there was no violence, period,” Steinberg said then.
“Bad things happen to good people, and that’s what this case is,” Steinberg added on May 13. “I don’t think he should have been arrested. I don’t think he should have been incarcerated.
“And I think people are going to look at this and come to the same conclusion that I did and say, ‘Boy, this is a bump in the road.’ This is a really, really good guy, and we’re sorry this had to happen to him.”
